Gerry Beckley, the gifted singer, songwriter, performer and co-founder of legendary band, America released his latest solo album, Five Mile Road, on September 20, 2019 via Blue Élan Records. In his first offering since his Blue Élan debut, Carousel, Five Mile Road is produced by Beckley and Jeff Larson, with all songs written by Beckley except “Life Lessons,” which was written by Gerry and actor/musician Bill Mumy.

2016 solo album from the singer/songwriter best known for his work with the Grammy-winning band America. Recorded at his Los Angeles studio Human Nature, the shimmering 12-track album plays to all of Beckley’s strengths; the singer, songwriter and musician played most instruments on the album. “With a solo project I’m really a committee of one,” says Beckley. “There’s only myself to please. Having said that, it’s not always easy. Each project is a snapshot in time. The material on Carousel came from a wide scope of inspiration.” Carousel contains original standouts such as the deeply personal “Lifeline”, “No Way I’m Gonna Lose You” (co-written with Dan Wilson who won an award for his work with Adele) and “Tokyo”, of which Beckley says: “The song actually came to me while I was waiting to board a flight home from Japan. I seem to remember I lost track of time and almost missed the flight.” There are also three covers on which Beckley puts his distinctive spin: Spirit’s “Nature’s Way”, Gerry Rafferty’s “To Each and Everyone” and Gerry and The Pacemakers’ “Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying”. “I’ve fortunately never been short on inspiration for my original material but I do love to record a cover every so often,” says Beckley. “These three are of course from my long list of fave songs.”
