Jaymie Gerard

To describe this NJ-native as prolific would be an understatement. With over 600 original songs in genres across the spectrum (folk, acoustic, pop, rock, dance, children’s music, political, Americana...), it is easy to find music in Jaymie Gerard's catalog that moves you. As a songwriter, she has been compared to John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Ray LaMontagne, Sheryl Crow and Aimee Mann, yet she maintains her own voice, her own sound, and her own image.

A seasoned performer, Jaymie has been sharing her original musicwith the public for over 16 years. On stage, she grabs hold of the hearts and minds of her audience; her honesty and approachability allows listeners to connect and engage naturally.

Jaymie draws inspiration from the world around her - books, short stories, friends, family, and strangers she meets in her travels and day to day. More recently, her music has taken a distinctive turn towards folk, as she enjoys the storytelling aspect of the genre.

Now partnered with her husband, Geb Zurburg, also a talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jaymie's music has reached a new level of intimacy. Their latest release, Acoustic Sessions (EP), features a handful of thought-provoking, emotional songs including a duet with Geb entitled, "Loved Enough."

Her 2010 releases (Ain't Life Sweet EP & Black-Eyed Susans EP) were an exploration of production, pushing the limits of "pop music" by infusing it with meaningful content. Both EP's have been receiving a good deal of streaming airplay.

Jaymie has performed at numerous venues in the tri-state area, as well as music festivals in NJ (Black Potatoe Music Fest., Wave Gathering Emergence Festival, NJ Folk Festival) and NH (Keene Music Festival).

She, her husband, and bass virtuoso, Andy Huenerberg, are currently recording a Folk/Americana LP expected to be released in spring, 2012.
