Jerry Leger - The Rock and Roll Poet
Show Notes

Singer Songwriter Jerry Leger is the real deal. His combination of authentic humility and spirited self confidence is a rare thing to witness. He possesses a deep understanding and respect for the great songwriters and performers of our time, while forging ahead with his own style and delivery.

Since his teenage years, Jerry has worked relentlessly on his craft - releasing at least one album a year, always with another gig or a new project on the horizon. On any given night, you can find him performing with his band The Situation, his rock and roll outfit The Del Fi's, or holding the crowd on his own - just him and a guitar. 

In this conversation, Jerry talks about life, influences, the art of the song, honing his craft, and what it takes to keep the lights on.
