8 states, 20 different schools, scores of clubs, 2 albums, opening spots for Braddigan of Dispatch, Stephen Kellogg and ZOX and one featured spot on Comcast's Battle of the Bands..
Not bad for an 18 year old in his first year of college, with no help from a record label
Fortunately, after playing four gigs in 3 states the week of his final exams, Jer Coons is done with on-campus schooling
Instead, this fall he'll be recording his true debut on Glennsource Records, featuring Greg Tobler (Norah Jones, David Bowie, Joan Baez), producer Ryan Green (Berklee College of Music) and a full backing band. You can expect an album "rooted in a Beatles/Ben Folds world of strong pop hooks"-Burlington Free Press
However whether it's his Vermont Roots, his quick-witted stage humor, or the fact that he rocks harder than paper and scissors, Jer Coons plays pop that your boyfriend isn't afraid to listen to
When asked about leaving school, Jer simply shrugs "I'm drop out, like Kanye West."
