Jerry Scafone - Its my Life - Flyah








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"

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
