A Future To Believe In

I'm Sure It Wouldn't Do

These performances were recorded totally solo in one take. Jerry O just the way you get him live. No overdubs, doubled vocals or editing tricks. Just a good room, nice mics and a talented engineer to capture Jerry, his guitar and a few pedals while he paints these stories of heritage, loss, inspiration and the big question of existence.
"Jerry Oliver's new album has been captivating me lately. When I discover new music I often want it to take me on a journey. First it challenges and sometimes disturbs before one little moment completely wins me over. Jerry's record has definitely passed that test. Jerry has been quietly working on his craft for years and deserves a much larger audience. Hopefully this record will get him just that. "

“Nashville, are you ready for Americana with a bad ass, trippy guitar? I hope so. Cause he's here.”
- DJ Glenn McReynolds, WRFN Radio Free Nashville (Lunch With Glenn McReynolds) (Dec 14, 2015)
The fifteen songs spanning the two releases were recorded in three sessions with Jerry's long time friend and collaborator Pepe as engineer and producer. The first session took place at Jerry's Birdwatcher Studio in Nashville over a weekend in spring 2014. The bulk of the material was recorded over four days in October 2014 at Pepe's Back Of The Head Studio in Arkansas. We fixed a couple things and re-recorded a couple songs in January 2015 at Back Of The Head and then Pepe got to mixing.
We hope this collection of songs written over the last four years takes you on a journey of sound and story beginning with the album Believe. These songs center on relationships and our relationships with the world around us and how it all affects what we believe or don't believe.
