About Jerry Schwartz

Jerry Schwartz

Jerry Schwartz writes, plays, sings, and produces the music of The Jerrys, a 60s-influenced pop band. Pixels of Young Mueller, his debut novel, is the story of an artist and is reminiscent of works by Laurence Sterne, Samuel Butler, James Joyce, and Thomas Wolfe.

Since the release of Pop Go The Jerrys in 2001, Schwartz has released new original music as The Jerrys on a regular basis. From lighthearted CD/song titles (Jerryrigged, “I Even Love You More Than Elizabeth Hurley,” The Wind Cries Jerrys) to trebly instrumentals (“Telepop,” “Just Looking,” “Love Thang”) to pop culture references (Ulysses, Gene Krupa, Ann Taylor) to cover songs (“Ticket to Ride,” “Love in Action,” “Bohemian Like You”), The Jerrys keep things fun.

Schwartz is married and has two adult children. In addition to playing and writing music, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, and watching his favorite sports teams. He currently manages social media and online communities for a nonprofit organization in Chicago.

The Wind Cries Jerrys, a six-song EP released in early 2018, is Jerry’s latest offering, and there’s more music on the way. Stay tuned!
