Hailing from Toms River, New Jersey, Kerri Edelman is far from your typical musician. Earning a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology, Kerri works as a Director and Licensed Clinical Psychologist in a Maximum Security Prison; causing many to gasp with the up-most surprise when meeting this youthful, energetic petite singer-songwriter. Being a former artist who left behind the heavier sounds of nu-metal and hard rock, Kerri combines the commercial alternative/rock of Amy Lee (Evanescence) and Alanis Morissette, the pop/rock of Avril Lavigne and Hayley Williams (Paramore) with the sultry soulfulness of Vanessa Carlton.
As a gifted singer, Kerri started writing lyrics, vocal melodies and songs while enrolled in her graduate studies. Having limited formal vocal training, her naturally skilled voice ranges from intense and powerful to sweet and soulful. With a family of accomplished musicians, one learns Kerri is the niece of Composer Randy Edelman (Gettysburg, Last of the Mohicans, Triple X, Billy Madison) and Singer Songwriter Jackie DeShannon (‘What the World Needs Now is Love’ and ‘Put a Little Love in Your Heart’). While developing herself as an artist, Kerri was involved in numerous bands and recording projects. Despite conducting herself as a serious, hard working and dedicated musician, her persistent attempts to find musicians with similar goals was continuously met with setbacks. And so she utilized her strong analytical and problem solving skills to establish a new game plan. In October 2007, Kerri contacted Producer, Chris Matty, via searching musician classified ads. Although the concept of becoming a solo artist had not crossed her mind, it became a viable option to consider. Following a formal meeting with Chris, Kerri committed to collaboratively writing a full-length album with him to produce her as a solo artist.
On her debut album, Leave It All Behind, Kerri releases music that is dynamic, thought provoking and emotionally laden. Life may not always proceed as planned, with the essence of Leave It All Behind encapsulating the endless possibilities that Kerri has come to learn and own. This collection of commercial radio friendly original alternative/rock songs is derived from a combination of her influences including Evanescence, Three Doors Down, Linkin Park, Seether, Our Lady Peace and Incubus. From her opening title track gleaming with infectious catching melodies and gritty emotion through the final despondent and heartfelt ballad on the album, Kerri''s honest reflection, interpretative lyrics and effervescent music will capture your attention in ways you may never imagine.
