Jerry Boonstra is an Americana/Alt-Country singer and songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee.

He's performed everywhere from house concerts to honky-tonks. From live radio appearances to the main stage at Bean Blossom. From the Bluebird cafe to the Exit-Inn. From busking for change in subways to the offices of major record labels.

He's signed deals with and been recorded by Grammy winning Americana/Country producer Tony Brown (Steve Earle, The Mavericks, George Strait, Todd Snider).

As a writer he's had cuts by other artists including Highway 101, Americana artist Darrell Scott and Scottish rock superstars Big Country. His songs have been used on NPR as well as European television.

“Soldier of the Lord” is his latest effort. The first single from a forthcoming album, the song is a modern Appalachian folktale as grim and honest as an empty bottle of Rebel Yell. One astute reviewer remarked that, “ if Joel and Ethan Coen ever started a band, “Soldier of the Lord” would be the first single.”
