Jer Coons Speak CD Review
We were really impressed by this album. Due out September 29, Speak is mainly pop-rock, with a little bit of country and some soul mixed in for good measure.
Just who is Jer Coons? Well, he’s young (20), he’s cute (all the girls love him) and music is his thing. Originally from Vermont, Jer Coons is set to release his debut pop album – "Speak" – on September 29. It’s a great CD and it feels like, through every song, you get to know Jer Coons just a little better.
Speak CD Review
We were really impressed by this album. Due out September 29, Speak is mainly pop-rock, with a little bit of country and some soul mixed in for good measure – it’s so nice to listen to, we think the songs are going to get lots of air-time on the radio once they’re released.
Most of the songs are about love, loss and regret – age-old topics but done with Jer Coons’ own original twist. Listen for some soulful vocals, electric guitar interludes and slow ballads. Like we said, some of the tracks, like “Girl In My Head,” have a slight country feel to them.
If it sounds familiar that’s because it was featured on the Hollister in-store playlist this past June. And while lots of artists get their music played in stores and on TV and web ads, very few of those songs get the same reaction "Legs" – which played throughout the day in over 6,000 stores – has.
Since spinning in Hollister, Jer Coons’ Myspace page plays skyrocketed to over 4,500 hits per day – "Legs" alone got over 3,000 hits on the website – making him the 3rd most popular artist on Myspace from Vermont (after Phish and Grace Potter).
