The Jerrys released their new single, "I'm a Reader," in February 2015. The song, an anthem for booklovers, is available on iTunes and at CD Baby, or you can download the song for free. Jerry Schwartz first previewed the song last year on WZRD Chicago 88.3 FM, where he played a full set of original material by The Jerrys, including "Let's Groove," the title track on their 2011 full-length CD. The band plans to release more new music this year.
What Others Are Saying"Beatles-inspired indiepop songs...and silly, pop culture-themed lyrics with titles like 'Ann Taylor Girl' and 'I Even Love You More Than Elizabeth Hurley'"..."[Schwartz] does have an appeal. The songs are Merseybeat-oriented pop, and are pretty catchy"..."Clearly, Schwartz has solid pop talent and vision." Read what others are saying about The Jerrys.
The Jerrys Featured in Pixels of Young MuellerThe Jerrys are featured in Pixels of Young Mueller, a coming-of-age tale published in 2010. Written in "an engaging and entertaining style," the story of Klaus Mueller is "insightful and thought provoking, with laugh-out-loud moments."
From his earliest days, young Mueller dreams of becoming a rock star. In the next-to-last chapter of the novel, Klaus forms his own one-man British pop group, The Jerrys, and "The King of I Don't Care," a song from the band's CD Jerryrigged, also appears in Pixels of Young Mueller.
