America Co-Founder Gerry Beckley Releases New Music

America co-founder Gerry Buckley has released new solo music. ‘Home Again’ is the first taste of Gerry’s album ‘Five Mile Road’ due in September.

Gerry has signed with Blue Elan Records to be able to continue to create what us old people call … albums.

“For those of us who grew up in the era of vinyl, the album listening experience has almost disappeared,” Beckley says in a statement. “Fortunately, Blue Élan has allowed me to make an album like the old days, like I want to do. I know how the tempo of all of our lives has adjusted over the past decade, so I’m honored anytime anybody spends the time to listen and I’m grateful to a record label that allows people like me to keep these creative areas alive. I hope I’ve delivered my half of the bargain.”

As part of America Gerry has had one of the most successful music careers of the past 50 years. “Sometimes I find myself looking back more than I look forward,” Beckley admits, “but I’m 66 years old and at a beautiful place in my life with my wife, kids and career. The challenge is how to convey your head and heart, to make music that isn’t preachy or clichéd reminiscence. I firmly believe that if you’re doing it well and blessed to still be able to go to the creative places, then it doesn’t stop.”

Gerry has collaborated with Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Robert Lamm of Chicago, dan Fogelberg, David Cassidy and Jimmy Webb. He was the composer of the America classic ‘Sister Golden Hair’.
