Jerry was an A & R representative for Vanguard Records for 2+ years , and was later courted by Warner Bros. for an A & R position. He turned them down since he was in the process of going independent in his production. He did not want to tie himself to one label since, as an independent producer, he was able to do work for a number of different labels, and was contracted at the time to produce albums of such artists as Charlie Daniels and Don McLean and Janis Ian. Jerry has produced albums for most of the major record labels.
