‘Celebrate’ by Jerry Fish has just been re-released as a single this Summer. All proceeds of Irish Sales in 2012 will be donated to Barretstown Children’s Charity.
Jerry Fish is a highly charismatic performer who refuses to countenance audiences having anything but a good time.
One of Ireland’s (by way of Brixton) most enigmatic songwriters and performers with a career spanning two decades, and a reputation for dynamic live shows. Touring the globe throughout the 1990’s as frontman of An Emotional Fish the alternative rock band that gave us the rock anthem ‘Celebrate’
Jerry Fish’s swaggering vocal has been described as Tom Waits in a good mood, or Leonard Cohen doing Dean Martin. Yes, the smiles come aplenty and witty lyrics are definitely Mr. Fish’s currency of choice, but Jerry’s songs have been so well crafted that they deserve more than a casual, amused listen.
Music that ‘bucks the zeitgeist with so much enthusiasm you just have to love it’. including the hit crooner ‘True Friends’ now truly ingrained in the Irish hum-along psyche, and two platinum selling albums ‘Be Yourself’ and ‘The Beautiful Untrue’ featuring guest appearances from among others, Damien Rice and Rockabilly starlet Imelda May.
Catch Jerry Fish & band air new tracks from his forthcoming album at the Roisin Dubh on Saturday 29th September. A show not to be missed! www.jerry-fish.com
