Born to a musical family in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Jerry began playing various instruments and singing professionally at a very early age.

By the time he was 14 years old he was a seasoned studio singer and touring musician with records playing all over the United States and abroad with over a dozen records airing all over the Southwest.

Throughout the years, Jerry has honed his skills as a guitarist, singer, and composer as well as a solid band leader, musical director and front man. As a sideman, he has performed with many artists that include just about all of his heroes.

Today, with Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns, many of those friends he’s toured and recorded with as well as his musical heroes show up to be “Guest Artists” with the band or sit in from time to time. People such as Bill Champlin, Tom Scott, Kenny Loggins, the Carlos Santana Band, Wayne Brady, Tower of Power, Clint Holmes, Ricky Peterson, Paul Peterson, Will Lee, Armando Peraza, etc. on and on.
