About The Jerrys

The Jerrys are a British-influenced guitar-pop band formed in Chicago, Illinois, by singer-guitarist Jerry Schwartz. Schwartz writes, plays, sings, and produces the music of The Jerrys, often enlisting the help of musical friends when recording and performing live. Since the release of Pop Go The Jerrys in 2001, the band continues to release new original music on a regular basis. Listeners compare the sounds to Boyce and Hart, The Who, Matthew Sweet, and The Shoes.

From lighthearted CD/song titles (Jerryrigged, "I Even Love You More Than Elizabeth Hurley," The Wind Cries Jerrys) to trebly instrumentals ("Telepop," "Just Looking," "Love Thang") to pop culture references (Ulysses, Gene Krupa, Ann Taylor) to covers of favorite bands ("Ticket to Ride," "Love in Action," "Bohemian Like You"), The Jerrys play like it all matters somehow. Because it does--at least to Schwartz.

The Jerrys' new six-song EP, The Wind Cries Jerrys, was released in 2018. The single from that release, "Chicago USA," is available now as a free download on The Jerrys website and on SoundCloud. Stay tuned. There's more on the way from The Jerrys!
