Jerry plays Bass, Guitar & sings, as well as writes and records his own music.
After 5 years of being more than a little unhappy with his cd Audio Mobile, Jerry decided to have it re-mixed and re-mastered rather than scrap it. The music itself was good but the mixing and mastering were really lacking, which resulted in a very muddy sounding cd with buried vocal tracks. Thanks to Mike Miulli at Sound waves Studio’s, the imperfections were fixed and Audio Mobile is something to be proud of.
The new and improved audio Mobile is what you will hear.
