Latest Studio CD (12/2013)
Halfway Home

Live CD (2009)
Music Here Tonight

"After years straddling the rock and folk circuit in upstate New York, Saratoga songwriter Michael Jerling is getting the attention he has long deserved. With a subtle but encyclopedic command of American styles and rhythms, a captivating melodic sense and incisive, clever lyrics, he is as supple a song craftsman as any riding the folk boards today." -- Scott Alarik, Boston Globe

Michael has just released a new studio album, called Halfway Home. It's a collection of 14 new songs, his first CD of all new material since "Crooked Path" (2007). Nippertown writes:

"Not only a multi-talented musician — he plays guitar, mandolin and harmonica on the disc — Jerling is also a masterful craftsman, a songsmith with a confident strength and a keen eye for the details that bring his eloquent songs to life. He's a magnificently understated vocalist with echoes of such masters as Guy Clark, John Gorka and Lyle Lovett." -- Nippertown, 1/3/2014 (Read full review)

Visit the album page for clips, lyrics to all the songs, and additional reviews. We have the CD in stock now.

His previous album is a live CD, recorded at Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs in June 2009 and released that September. Titled Music Here Tonight, the CD has 18 songs including one new one, the title track. The other songs include all of Michael's most popular tunes, many specifically requested by his fans.
