JERRY LAWSON

JUST A MORTAL MAN

The ‘Jerry Lawson Legacy Project,’ an exclusive series for Blues America, explores the history of Jerry Lawson and the legendary Persuasions in chronological order as explained in a biographical commentary by Jerry and Julie Lawson with special guests.

Jerry Lawson is arguably one of the most important figures in the genre of a’cappella (singing without the use of instrumental accompaniment). For more then 40 years, Lawson was the lead singer, producer, arranger and founding member of the Persuasions, the most famous a’cappella group to date, and the only performers of their genre to earn worldwide mainstream success. Jerry Lawson and the Persuasions have undoubtedly done more to popularize a’capella then anyone else before or since. Lawson launched a solo career in 2004 soon after releasing an album with Talk of the Town and appearing on CBS's the Sing-Off. At the age of 71, he is releasing his first solo album on Nashville Red Beet Records, 'Just a Mortal Man.'

2017

Bill Howl-N-Madd Perry cut his teeth on the gospel scene behind the Blind Boys of Alabama and Shirley Caesar before touring with Little Milton. Later the Mississippi native was seen behind Freddie King, Little Richard, Cash McCall, Johnnie Taylor and T-Bone Walker before breaking out on his own and cutting several fine records over the years. In 2009, he acted alongside Cuba Gooding Jr and Clarence William III in the major motion film, The Way of War. Today Howl-N-Madd Perry is considered a living legend who tours extensively with his daughter, the rising blues star, Sharo “Shy” Perry.
