Kerry Wilkins – Guitarist

Jazz guitarist Kerry Wilkins began to feel a strong inner pull and taste for contemporary jazz peppered with a bit of funk. Kerry is considered a musical genius by many of his peers and during recording sessions regularly “lays down” his solo and/or parts in one or two takes. From his arsenal of diverse talents, his primary instrument is guitar. He also produces, writes, arranges and plays bass guitar, keyboards, and drums. Kerry’s first solo project “The Introduction” was long awaited and released in 2001. The CD received airplay and sales from California to New York, Canada, Mexico, The United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Russia, Hungary, The Netherlands, Africa, Columbia, Japan and many other countries. After the release of his solo project, Kerry went back into the studio as an independent producer, songwriter, and guitarist to perform work on seven independent recording projects. Kerry’s sound is smooth and dynamic! His latest release and Billboard Chart song, TC Park, “is named for a park that I actually used to walk to when I was a kid.”
