"It's simple; songs work or they don't. Jerree Small's songs work...Infectious melodies, a masterful and apparently effortless control of language and a voice which beckons with it's friendly, scratchy warmth. Jerree Small is a performer to watch. Better yet, Jerree Small is a performer to listen to."

- Ed McKeon, WWUH DJ

Bio

Heard live on "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor, April 24, 2004 on National Public Radio.

With her easy laugh and openness with the audience, Jerree Small has a stage presence that feels immediately familiar and endearing. Her writing strikes a similar balance. “The songs seem as though they’ve been unearthed rather than written. Like old songs that you just hadn’t heard before” a musician friend once told her. Small “communicates in the wonderful shades of gray” writes Darren Tobalt of the Minnesota Ripsaw News.

Jerree Small grew up in the Midwest listening to a combination of Cyndi Lauper, Madonna and her parents Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens records. She picked up the guitar while studying creative writing at the Minnesota Arts High School in Minneapolis and started marrying her words to music. Enjoying a four year stint in the Northeast, Small couldn’t resist the pull of her roots, basing herself back in Duluth, Minnesota in December 2003. “The stark cold is good for contemplation.” Small jokes.

These days, Jerree Small can be found on the road performing at coffeehouses, festivals, colleges and other venues across the country. She has opened for such performers as Maggie and Suzzy Roche, Ferron, Karen Savoca and Jules Shear.
