Bio

During one of his gigs Jerry Given met Eurovision–legend Johnny Logan, who was so impressed with his voice and performance ,
that he instantly offered to write him a song.
The song received a lot of positive attention from National Radio and TV and ended within 3 weeks in place 28 of the Dutch Mega-Charts. The video was aired for several months on MTV and TMF.

2005 brings a collaboration between Jerry and Bill Padley, a very well-known British producer who composed for international acts such as Atomic Kitten, Westlife and Faithless.
The hitsingle “Turning 2 U” was born.

After teaming up with hitsong-writers Brian McFadden, Shane Filan (Both also leadsingers with Westlife) and Bill Padley in 2006, the decision was made to produce an entire album.
EMI Publishing , Sony/BMG Publishing , Chrysalis Benelux Publishing and Universal Publishing made sure that Jerry was able to record 13 amazing songs.

The first single taken from this album is ‘Can’t believe she’s gone’ and was released in March 2007 in the Netherlands.
It shot straight into the Top 50 and landed on 37 to stay there for 4 weeks.
The follow-up was ‘Breathing under Water’ and received the same enthusiastic attention. Both videos to these hits were shown for weeks on MTV and the dutch music-channel TMF.

The album “Speak up” was released in the Netherlands at the end of 2007 and sold over 115.000 copies ; double gold and Platinum

In 2009 Jerry initiated another collaboration with de Finnish hitsong-writer Patrick Sarin, with whom he produced the rocky ‘ Million Miles’. DJ Wendel Kos heard the song and loved it so much, that he converted it into a brilliant s=dance-track, that was immediately picked up by all the radiostations. Jerry also made a beautiful musicvideo to this song, that is still promoted on MTV and TMF.

In 2009 Given also signed with his current record-label “ FOAM Music” , owned by Jeroen Bron.

During winter 2009-2010 Jerry toured through Austria. During this period he also released another dance remix of one of his rock-songs, Can’t Breathe, which was mixed by Black Eyed Peas’ engineer Lenny B. This song also sky rocketed in no time and is still to be heard on the music channels.

In the meantime Given also put his focus on writing and producing his own songs. ‘ Fat Freddy’ was picked up by Videoland, that asked Jerry permission to use it as a jingle to their new campaign “ Let us entertain you” . Not without success.

Other big companies are knocking on his door and a new campaign for Ice-cream company Frisiana is being promoted at this moment. The song to accompany this campaign for the cool ice-cream brand Licker, “ The Licker Song, Will be released in the summer 2010.

Stay tuned, stay cool….
