'Kerry Drexler, guitar-smith wunderkind will wow the audience with his guitar & voice and a couple effects and loop machines' - Chris VB, Tipsy V Presents 'Kerry Drexler and his magic one-man-bandandery... Expect some surprises to come from this man as he tames his machines into a whirling symposium and keeps all his limbs intact in the doing' - Chris VB, Tipsy V Presents 'As the owner of The Crossroads in Garwood, New Jersey, I am always pleased when new talent crosses my stage. I am even more pleased when that talent is popular with my customers, consistently bringing in a crowd...Kerry is one of those young men who is a joy to bring back into the club, with the confidence that his music will be enjoyed by the crowd' - Lee Frankel, Owner of the Crossroads, Garwood, NJ 'Kerry Drexler has a lot of natural musical ability. It was a pleasure working with him and I look forward to doing so again in the future.' - Matt Wilson, owner of FLO Studio When Kerry Drexler takes the stage, people notice. This is because Kerry Drexler is not your average singer/songwriter. Although only one man is on stage, Kerry's songs are so full of sound that it often feels as if an entire band is performing. Drum beats, bass lines, multiple guitar lines and three-part vocal harmonies can be heard throughout a Kerry Drexler performance. Kerry is able to pull this off with his army of effects pedals on the floor. With all of these tools, Kerry is able to breathe life into his genre-defying songs. Although influences such as Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Dave Matthews, Howie Day and Guster can easily be heard in Kerry's music, Kerry always finds a way to put his own unique signature on all of his songs. From one song to the next, Kerry's songs each stand as their own musical statement, be it a slow fingerpicked ballad or an uptempo rocker. This variety in Kerry's musical styles stems from his past. Kerry first picked up a guitar when he was seventeen and quickly thereafter started playing gigs. Kerry played solo, as an acoustic duo, as an acoutic trio with percussion, in a bar cover band and an original pop-punk band. Throughout all of these bands, Kerry was the primary songwriter. When scheduling conflicts left Kerry without a band in the summer of 2003, he decided to strike out on his own. Since going solo, Kerry has put out one EP, titled 'Tomorrow' and gigged in colleges, coffee shops, and clubs throughout New Jersey and New York City. Kerry has shared the stages with Columbia Records recording artist Imani Copolla, Top 10 songwriter Robert Matarazzo, John Taglieri, the Juggling Suns and many others. With such a buzz about Kerry Drexler's live performances, Kerry's first soon-to-be-released full-length album will be a live show recorded at the VIP Studio Lounge in Garwood, NJ. With a growing fan-base Kerry has expanded to touring the Northeast region of the US. 'I'm going to ride this wave as far as it will take me. I enjoy playing music and if people keeping enjoying my music then I'm going to keep playing it for them.'
