Back to My Door
When he is playing for one, ten, or more, Jerry Wells seems to reach the hearts, and souls of many people. His music ability, and style, along with his down home stage presents, keeps audiences, and fans entertained, and always asking for more. Jerry's music spans many different genres. A mixture of blues, bluegrass, and good, old country, his original sound, with old fashioned, acoustic roots, always tells someones story. Jerry got his start in music as a teen in Maquoketa, Iowa as a drummer. He played local honkey-tonks with friends, with garage bands, or for anybody that would listen. Later in his life, he broadened his horizons musically by adding many acoustic instruments to his playing style. After serving his country in the United States Navy during the Viet Nam era, Jerry settled down to work a day job in the steel industry, and raise a family, all the while, still finding the time to pursue his love of music when he could. Presently, he juggles family, music, work, and everyday life. Although he has always written, and performed his own original music, as well as other artists tunes, one of his new pursuits is recording. Jerry released, on August 15, 2007, an acoustic CD, 'Back To My Door.' He recorded, and produced his first indie album in his home/ studio, outside of Erie, Illinois. The title cut of this CD,was written about, and dedicated to his daughter Jozie Wells. She gave her service to the United States Army National Guard, finished two tours in Afghanistan, and Iraq, and has since safely returned home. Jerry, and Carmin Wells, send their sincere thanks to all the military servicemen, and women who are keeping us all free.
