This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



J.T. Kerry is lighting up New York with a new brand of alternative country that has all the nostalgia of your granddaddy’s front porch and all the vintage vibes of Plantation Records. His unique songs about addiction, alienation, mental illness, and of course a shovel full of heartache, make this honky tonk man a must-see performer.

“Midnight mornings always lead to heartaches in the sun…”

J.T. has been told many times that he should write a book about the countless misadventures he boisterously recalls to anyone willing to listen. Instead he puts these stories to music in a sonic tapestry that combines his love of traditional country, roots music, southern rock, and 70s singer-songwriters. If Bob Seger had a threesome with Hank Williams, Jr. and Kurt Cobain, the sardonic offspring of this unholy union would be J.T. Kerry. He sings a style of genuine melancholy that goes hand in hand with his wry and witty lyrics.

“...I might find home, a place to rest my head”

J.T. started playing music in his hometown of Atlanta, GA where he grew up playing in punk rock bands, acoustic duos in college bars, power trios playing strip clubs downtown, and a path of destruction a mile wide. An unhealthy dose of hard women, hard liquor, and hard drugs eventually took its toll. After he got clean, it became about the music again.

J.T. is currently playing gigs in the New York metropolitan area and will be releasing new music in early 2020. He is available for private event booking as well.
