Jerry Hull with Strange Afternoons on Taking Off With Spitfire - Showcasing Local Talent from the South Holland area

A Spitfire favourite, Jerry’s music encompasses a wide variety of genres such as pop, rock, blues, boogie-woogie, Americana, gospel, country, medieval, jazz, ragtime, orchestral, romantic and that classic Memphis sound.

Since April 2015, Jerry has released 37 singles (including some album tracks, 11 videos, as well as 5 albums. His debut “Heaven Help Me” was released in July 2015, and a sixth album is due for release in May 2018.

Music reviewers and fans have often said that my style is similar to Elton John, Billy Joel, Burt Bacharach, and Todd Rundgren both musically and vocally, but with my own original style emerging. My style is also impacted from being brought up in the mid-south of the United States and certainly from being born and raised in Memphis (Tennessee). After living and gigging from Memphis to Los Angeles, the mid-west USA, and Toronto for 24 years, I am now settled in East Yorkshire. My life’s experiences and present surroundings have most definitely also played an additional role on the style of my recent writing activity. I have never been so prolific as I am now in my entire life – within the last 3 years producing over 300 songs!
