"New Act Takes Center Stage"

Beautiful...Just simply...beautiful. - Ben Bishop

"Jerry Arlen Takes Midwest Festival By Suprise"

Jerry Arlen's unique blend of incredibly complex vocals highlighted behind simple guitar progressions brings to mind shades of early Jeff Buckley. With every note, the crowd seems suspended, as if lost in the moment along side. I truly believe he will be one of the performers to change the face of music for the new millennium. - Jacob Freedman

"Quotes From Last Months Northern Festival"

I'm not quite sure what I just saw there, but I know it moved me. God, it moved me. - Harold Stevenson


The Drive Me Home E.P



Jerry Arlen has developed a sound over the years that borrows so many elements from folk, it is suprising it cannot be called folk. The genuine feeling that come from his songs, delivered with pure talent, in the rawest way possible stem from a genre he claims he "rarely listens to" But that is where the folk ends. After you get passed the vocals, which are heightened with a range Jeff Buckley would be proud of, you get to the surprising root of his music. Single guitar pieces that showcase a more jazz styling, while still maintaining an ere of pop behind every note. It is truly hard to tell what Genre he will choose for each song, however one thing will remain, they are melodic and accessible to the everyday man. He seems to thrive on his ability to reduce music to it's most basic form, than using the power of his vocals, take it to places that haven't been reached in years. Jerry Arlen has earned his place as a mainstay in venues across the country.
