Jerry Hannan – A distinguished songwriter and entertainer to boot.
Jerry Hannan’s songs have appeared in several major motion pictures including; The Pledge (Jack Nicholson), Life without Dick (Harry Connick Jr., Sarah Jessica Parker) and most recently his song “Society” which he recorded with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, and is featured in Sean Penn’s film Into the Wild.
Described as “shades of Dylan, John Prine and Van Morrison…very Americana with a faint Irish lilt”, Hannan’s songs (like those of Springsteen, Steve Earle and Cat Stevens) speak of our everyday lives and the magic that we sometimes miss. He’s a storyteller, known for his thought provoking and poignant lyrics and exuberant performances. He has been called a wizard with guitar, lyrics and harmonica, often funny, sardonic in a good-natured way, highlighting issues like ecology, friendship, and love.
His current band consists of Drummer Adam ‘bagel’ Berkowitz (Petty Theft, The 85’s), Bassist Don Bassey (Danny Click) and Guitarist Michael Papenburg (Petty Theft, Matt Nathanson).
