Gerald Joseph "Jerry" Hannan (born San Francisco, California) is an Irish-American singer-songwriter and actor.
Raised on jigs and ballads in San Francisco's Irish community, Jerry Hannan grew up listening to the music of his Irish-born parents (The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers), as well as Cat Stevens (he learned and loved every Cat Stevens song). As a youngster he took accordion lessons, switching to guitar in high school and playing in rock 'n roll bands. He was a member of the popular Marin County rock band, The Kind, in the 80s.
In the mid-1990s, he booked some time in a Marin County recording studio just to record a couple of original songs that he had written, "so I'll have something to listen when I'm old," he said. "The owner of the studio called me up and said that they would record the whole album for free." Thus the Mad Hannans, Jerry's first independent recording project was born.
