One Voice with one guitar is at the fore front of his newly recorded music to establish his songwriting ablilities and self-taught playing skills in it’s most rare form. Jerad Perck is a Louisiana Native, who has been performing as a full time singer/songwriter and backing musician for the last nine years. He began to find an overwhelming appreciation for his original music and gaining notariety while working at “Dollywood” in Pigeon Forge,Tenn. during 2007.The most experience as an entertainer came when given the opportunity to have his own show there, playing for multi-culturistic audiences sometimes five shows a day.
As an ethusiastic youngster, his music education began with his grandparents records of the 60’s and 70’s along with the popular radio music of his own generation. Later, he started learning by ear, eventually playing 8 instruments, spending hours with them picking out the parts from his favorite artists songs while teaching himself the fundamentals of music theory along the way. Recently, Jerad has had some success with his instrumental tunes placed into programs on nationwide television and cable networks such as CBS and HBO. Orginal songs of his have landed him awards from the “True Value Country Music Showdown” as well as #1 and top 10 singles on the “Ourstage Indie Music Charts” Now focused on Nashville,Tenn. Perck will concentrate on his songwriting craft while looking to contribute the skills he learned from his full cd release entitiled; TODAY, TOMORROW, & YESTERDAY,inwhich he prodcued, composed, wrote and arranged most of the music and lyrics.
However, brand new songs are being recorded in 2009 with a different outlook as an artist. Each song will be approached with a blend he defines as"Coffehouse Country Music" This sound comes from the styles of his overall influences (writings,music,and/or vocals) of such musicians like Alison Krauss, John Mayer, Randy Travis, and Merle Haggard with pure honesty in the likeness of James Taylor. His new recorded music will sound more like his live performing with just one guitar and vocal to express it in it’s most raw form. Jerad is always look forward to musical endeavors, making new friends, and the ongoing experiences in his journey he calls everyday life
Currently, Jerad can be heard performing at a variety of acoustic venues in South Eastern Louisiana, with plans to reach out to a broader audience. He has just finished his first season at “Dollywood” in Pigeon Forge,Tenn. doing his own acoustic show and released an all original cd in the later part of ‘07
