Singer/Songwriter Gerry Dekoto performs an eclectic scope of material ranging from southern rock-a-billy and story-telling to stone cold Memphis blues. Reaching across genres, his tableau includes interpretively revamped rock and heavy metal classics to emotional renditions of the silliest sitcom soundtracks. A common set list includes both covers (Duffy, Prince, Seal, Aerosmith, Ethridge, Monkees, etc.) and original compositions, as well as standards from Dylan, Seger, Clapton, The Beatles and Stones. Love songs, political commentary, biting parody are themes often visited in Gerry's own material. The first CD, Dekoto UnPlugged, featuring “Been There Too” is available via the web Gerry is currently working in the studio on a new album, tentatively titled, Heavy Metal Love Songs for the Acoustic Heart. Look for him this summer and fall in and around New England & New York.
