Jerry Scafone was born near Detroit in Hazel Park, Michigan. He started writing songs at the age of 17. A year later, encouraged by his friends and family, he headed out to Nashville pedaling his songs up and down Music Row. It wasn't long before he was signed as a writer with Web Pierce Publishing Company. Two years later Jerry signed with Panorama Records in Nashville. He recorded several songs including “What In The World’s Come Over You”, which was made famous by Jerry’s legendary brother, Jack Scott, in 1960.
Jerry returned to Detroit to marry his childhood sweetheart, Nanette, and signed a record deal with MSK Records. Jerry released several songs including “When the Blues Come Around”, “Angels Don’t Cry” and “By This Time Tomorrow”. Tragedy struck Jerry and his family when his son, "Little" Jerry was diagnosed with leukemia and died at age seven. Jerry’s direction expanded and he went on to have a successful career in the fitness business while never losing passion for his music. He currently owns the Workout Warehouse in Springfield, Ohio and the Bell Bar Lounge located inside the club.
Jerry demonstrated his passion for music and wrote a heartfelt song for his wife, Nanette, called “Bride of My Youth”. Jerry presented the song to his friend and producer/musician, Junior Smith. Junior encouraged Jerry to start writing more songs. This resulted in his new CD, “Jack Hammer”. A collection of 15 songs recorded at Studio D Recording Studio in New Carlisle, Ohio. Jerry has written 13 of the songs on his new CD including “Big Brothers and Heros”, a tribute to his legendary rock and roll brother, Jack Scott.
With renewed passion, Jerry produced his new CD “Jack Hammer” (available on iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon.com and a host of distribution sites), a great compilation of original music and two cover songs. Jerry is currently in the studio working a music video and laying tracks for his next CD project, "Highway to Heaven"
