Jerry Fee is one of the Northwest's most promising, up-and-coming independent artists. Take one part Americana Roots Rock, two parts Brit Pop, and a dash of panache - and Jerry Fee's music emerges, center stage. A refreshing voice and talented, sincere songwriter, the power of Jerry's music is specially conveyed in a live setting. Backed by his newly-formed band, the audience at his shows will see a performance that the indie music scene has been craving!
"Soulful, funny, and charming, Jerry Fee pulls the audience into his performances with heartfelt singing and easy conversation with the crowd between songs. By the end of the night we felt like we'd experienced something meaningful and made a new friend. His last show here (in April '08) left us saying - "Remember that time when we went to see Jerry Fee at Art Sounds, and just about everyone there bought his CD and then followed him to Dax's to watch his show again the same night? Yeah? That was cool."
