It's been a wild ride since Jerry Cherry released his first record "Life Is Sweeter," and now he has just released his long-anticipated follow-up titled “Married To Myself.”
To sum it up, what it’s been for Jerry is a marriage between himself and his new record. “Married to Myself” took over 3 years to make and with Jerry’s last record “Life Is Sweeter” released in 2008, we’re talking 11 years since he’s put out a new record. The time has finally come.
On the Album, Jerry penned a handful of heartfelt, beautiful love songs such as Remember My Love, Take Your Pictures Down, and Miracle, just to name a few. These 9 songs truly encapsulate what a Jerry Cherry record is all about. Much like “Life Is Sweeter,” Cherry’s listeners will be taken on a wild journey through his soul.
Jerry played all the instruments, engineered the recording, and mixed all of the record “Married To My-self” in his home studio, with the exception of the song Vampires.
Jerry Cherry has performed his music across the country and internationally. Some of those shows in-clude opening up for The Fixx, Buck Cherry, Better Than Ezra, and Chubby Checker.
As the former lead guitarist, tour manager and musical director for rock’n’roll legend Chubby Checker, Cherry has shared the stage with stars such as the Beach Boys, Little Richard and Chuck Berry, whose famous Gibson ES355 stereo guitar Cherry had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play. In Cherry’s role with Chubby Checker, he performed on NBC’s Today Show, on CBS’s The Early Show, and at the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame.
Cherry has also backed up other legends, including Freddy Cannon, and The Crystals. Cherry is the bassist and sub guitarist for the disco tribute band Disco Unlimited, where not only do they play the best songs from the Disco era but they also back up classic artists such as France Joli, Tavarez, Yvonne El-liman, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes, Anita Ward, and The Hues Corporation. Cherry is also a sub as Bjorn, the lead guitarist/vocalist in the ABBA tribute band Abbacadabra, sub guitarist/bassist in the eighties show band Jessie’s Girl, and sub guitarist in the band Soulsystem Orchestras founded by drummer Rob Affuso (Skid Row).
