'Beautiful, emotionally potent lyricism.'-Rosanne Cash Growing up the youngest of six children on Long Island's South Shore in the Sixties and Seventies, Gerry McKeveny was exposed to a dizzyiing variety of music-from the hits of the day emanating from the Philco above the kitchen sink to the Byrds and Grateful Dead coming from his older brothers' room; from Led Zepellin, James Taylor and Tim Buckley spinning on his sister's turntable to the Yes, John Fahey, Van Morrison and Jackson Browne LPs that would further shape his sensibilities. In the early Nineties Gerry formed the Fugitives with partner Joe Caggiano. They would go to the semi-finals of WBAB's prestigious Homegrown Competition on the strength of a four-song demo-and remain as active now as ever. In 1996 Gerry and Joe released High Road, garnering local airplay. In 2002, Gerry released Healing Season, an all-instrumental acoustic guitar CD which attracted the attention of guitarist-author-producer Artie Traum and Grammy-winner Rosanne Cash. Gerry lives in Blue Point, New York with his family. He continues to write, sing and play with no plans on stopping anytime soon.
