Gerr-Kenn Records a label dedicated to distributing Southern Soul music for the artist on a budget; housing several artists that embody that southern sound.
GERR-KENN RECORDS was started in 2004 in order to record my second CD and to help other artists like myself who lack a real budget, and that’s how GERR-KENN began. As I was recording my second CD, I thought about all the red tape I went through with the first one and the money that it cost me to record, which was very expensive. I knew that if I was going through that, there had to be other artists out there with the same problem. So, I started figuring out a way to come up with a less expensive way to record that would help me as we well as other artists. I knew that I had to have high tech equipment and sounds that would be conducive to recording crisp and clear vocals.
After obtaining the necessary equipment, there was still a need for ease of access in recording. I began to look for help from other artists, song writers, and musicians who were interested in helping me start GERR-KENN RECORDS. In the beginning, there was Anthony Watson, formally with the Chi-lites, Cedric Brooks, a top notch keyboard player and my right hand man and Nadine Brooks, just to name a few who help me with this project.
The naming of the company came from using the first four letters of my two eldest sons’ names, Gerrard C. and Kenneth A. Edwards. My third son, Kellen A. Edwards, also joined the company and is very interested in recording his own songs, which will be done at GERR-KENN RECORDS.
Bringing this dream to reality has been a slow process, but with God’s help, we are going to release 3 CDs by mid-year. The web site was published on March 9th of 2013 to assist in having songs recorded by GERR-KENN RECORDS heard, as well as having contact for the public.
