Episode 56: Jerel Crockett
For decades now, Virginia has proven itself to be a true launching pad for some of music's best and brightest artists: Missy Elliott, D'Angelo, Timbaland, and Pharrell Williams, just to name a few, hail from "The Mother Of States." Jerel Crockett doesn't have the same name recognition – yet -- but from his burgeoning resume and delivery skills, the producer, songwriter and vocalist is definitely on the path to "next."
Thanks to his ambition and experience (credits with BRAVO-TV, Tank, and Kenny Lattimore), Jerel has been earning serious buzz with his regional hit single "No Pressure" before beginning a residency at National Harbor's MGM Casino and Resort and the release of his latest single, "We Go Up."
Simply put, Crockett's satiny vocals make his southern gentleman roots all the more apparent. Just like the catalogs of his VA predecessors, one listen won't be enough.
