I am a multi-instrumentalist with decades of experience with guitar as my primary compositional instrument. While I write lyrics occasionally (see below), I most enjoy creating chordal melodies and advanced harmonic progressions for other’s lyrics within the jazz, blues, country and rock genres. I am financially self-sufficient and compose/arrange/record in my home studio in the foothills of the Pennsylvania mountains. I can be contacted via e-mail at Best, Jerry.
Lyric-Sleep to Wake (J. DeMara) I recall walking in an endless field Stars strewn across an ancient sky Pondering myths, legends and tales of grandeur Recasting space and interleaving time. While glancing to my left to my right a bird took flight Throwing it\\\'s shadow on the moon A weak-winged young sparrows escape of winter Betrayed by a passing moon. My thoughts turned from self to a realization I have lived this life before A dialogue the epilogue of my wisdom Of what to God might I implore? As winter turns to spring the oceans tide turns toward The task of washing clean its banks again If stars reflect the grains of sand on a beach removed The earth reflects a mote of dust near heaven. I lift my arms toward the sky out reaching To cradle in my heart the night As darkness lifted dawns light shifted scattering color The Milky Way surrendered then took flight. My thoughts turned again this time to my children so clear An image that my breath did take I felt their breath upon my cheek the beating of their hearts As I slipped from sleep to wake.
