Jerardi has mastered the blues with his new album Occupied, combining blues with Muscle Shoals Soul! It’s just that good!

Jerardi has spent the better part of the last five years honing his skills as a soul blues singer songwriter. These are excellent songs especially the title track.
Jerardi is an emotive singer inspired by this outstanding band.“Do Right By Him” is another great song. This is a wonderful entry for the soul blues genre.

From the opening horn riff, Jerardi blows the roof off the sucker with the help of the classic Swampers… Killer stuff throughout.

Jerardi’s new R&B-infused album, “Occupied” is simply stunning!
Don Thrasher, Dayton Daily News
Eric was encouraged to stretch out not only through his gifted writing abilities, but also in the lead vocal role, and the results are astonishing, indeed. The songs deal predominantly with love, loss, and hopeful redemption, and the set begins with the question, “When will it stop?,” as our hero reaches the literal end of his emotional rope in “Do Right By Him.”
