Artist Biography

I'm I'm Jerry, I am not the singer or the songwriter, I'm a newbie to being a Lyricist. I write a lyric then I find a studio musician to add melody and vocals and I get the copyright. Long term Goals: to collaborate with mainstream singer-songwriter and/or publisher to get my music higher in the charts. Stretch Goals: Possibly be signed to a label.

I don't know what got into me to write about a dozen song lyrics. I think everyone has written a few song lyrics but did not know how to see them come alive. Traditional method would be knocking on doors of record companies, something that did not interest me. I cut a few corners and found a few studio musicians that could provide the melody and vocals plus with cdbaby, I could bypass having a publisher. Some of the studio musicians, I found are well known singer-songwriters in their own right but because of contractual obligations could not reveal their names being associated with my song lyrics.

Press Release

Neither singer or songwriter, Jerry Collins is a freelance lyricist that allows studio musicians to provide melody and vocals to create his lyrics into hit songs. One musician is a music teacher from London and the other is a well known recording artist.
Jerry Collins, a FedEx employee and ghost hunter, is a difficult person to review. Jerry is neither a singer nor a songwriter. In essence he is a newbie lyricist who finds studio musicians to sing and complete his artistic visions and put them into song. So how do we judge Jerry’s’ work? Do we look for brilliance, creativity and imagination in words. Are the lyrics a poem set to music? Do they perfectly blend and influence the music? Do they compel the heart and the mind?

Jerry’s content is so deep, real, and sincere, listening to him feels like exactly how we imagine a relaxed, candid conversation with him would go. No pretentiousness. No fakeness. This is not even outright poetry – Just pure, God-given talent.

Jerry on the other hand has captivated me with his story about the love and discovery of his music. It is such a joy to listen to him rhyme in simple prose that can be easily understood by anyone on any level.

Again, if we go back to the standard judging criteria and components of good lyrics, we’ll see that they consist of the Hook, Originality, Appeal, Focus, Phrasing and Form. But we like to look beyond that when appreciating a lyric sheet or its lyricist.

So when listening to Jerry Collins’ lyrics, we ask ourselves the following: Do the lyrics move me, draw me in, pull on my heartstrings, make me laugh, cry, think, or react? Do they entertain me? And ultimately, are they believable? We have already positively answered all those questions.

Jerry has raised the bar with each release. This album definitely represents a journey towards a much more melodic sound and is full of depth and texture. Once again the lyrics are deeply meaningful, and yet with every line he keeps it clever and fresh. I think you can hear some major growth and refinement from Jerry Collins with each new release.
