HOW I GOT HERE. I am a Navy Veteran from central Minnesota. While serving in the US Navy I worked as an AM (Aviation Mechanic) on F/A 18's. Recently I wrote and posted "Hallelujah Veterans Version" Ive been busy writing and in the Studio and released a new single on June 16th! It is available on the website, iTunes, and Google play. It is currently on the radio on BOB 106.1 FM in Minnesota! I love singing, and getting words on paper. I began performing for Veterans at the VA, and in different groups online where we meet to give each other support. They are 100% behind me. That is an amazing feeling. Music Therapy Although Ive always loved to sing, I recently started to learn to play the guitar, and I post those messy unedited videos! I feel that music is therapeutic and everyone should learn to play. I hope that seeing my struggles to learn, and seeing the progress Ive made will encourage others to take the time and spend the time and energy. Hallelujah Veterans Version The support and love for Hallelujah Veterans Version has been awesome and overwhelming. I couldn't have hoped or imagined what its become. With their permission I hope to put together a group of the messages I've received. Everyone asks me what is next... Where do I go, and what do I write? That put me under a lot of pressure until I realized the impact this song has had on veterans, and active duty. Mothers are listening and remembering their sons, wives connect better with their combat veterans because of this song, daughters listen to it and remember their dads, and men and women who wear or have worn the uniform listen to it and remember people they have lost. I can not top this. Nothing I can do will surpass this, not even 50 hits that reach #1 can top this. So the only pressure I have is wondering if I did them justice. So I'll keep writing and making music. As long as they want to listen, Ill keep singing. Please contact me for more information on the music, having Sailor Jerri at an event or join the mailing list to be updated on anything new!
