Jeri comes from 4 generations of musicians and multi-instrumentalists. Her mother was a professional jazz musician as was her grandmother. Her grandmother's father, Jeri's great grandfather, was also a musician and violin-maker. And Jeri's father was a folk guitar player. Being completely surrounded by music, Jeri began playing piano at age of 3 and by high school was gigging, arranging and writing scores. Jeri attended The Juilliard School of Music as a composition/orchestration major which landed her a contract as a musical director. It was in one of those sessions that she saw her first Fairlight and thus decided to become an engineer.
