Jerry Fish, producer, songwriter and showman extraordinaire, returns with a new single “Blue” on June 30, 2017. Moved by the passing of his friend and band-mate, Martin Murphy in January of this year, the drummer with whom he first rose to fame in An Emotional Fish. “The lyrics of the song have always touched me, and stand out as true now as they did the day I wrote them. “Blue” is a tribute to Martin, the band, and the music we made together” Jerry always seeking to innovate, reimagines “Blue” with a beautiful new string arrangement by pianist Cian Boylan and also features a mesmerising vocal contribution from May Kay (Fight Like Apes) and now co-presenter of the TV Series Other Voices.
Jerry Fish is one of Ireland’s most enigmatic and entertaining performers, a ringmaster of exceptional renown, curator of the circus that is his very own stage; “The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow” at the country’s biggest music and contemporary arts festival The Electric Picnic. A Glastonbury regular Jerry describes the Music / Arts festival as “the last bastion of community”. It is for this “community” Jerry will perform a reflection of his own life stories growing up in a London-Irish milieu on the banks of the Thames entitled “Misery Hill – The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish – Part One” at this year’s Dublin Fringe Festival.
Throughout the 1990’s Jerry Fish was the creative force of the alternative rock band An Emotional Fish. Since then Jerry has changed his skin many times and is recognised as a constantly evolving artist who has always favoured innovation over orthodoxy. Now in a mood that could be styled reflective revolution, Jerry with “Blue” is recapturing some of his beloved music that is no longer available to fans of The Fish.
“Blue” is scheduled for release on Friday June 30th 2017 | www.jerry-fish.com
