Gerry Magallan


Born and raised in Northwest Indiana, Gerry Magallan performed as a trumpet and guitar player, and singer for a variety of bands in the Gary and East Chicago Indiana area throughout the 70's. Gerry also studied music formally, and earned a master’s degree in music from Illinois State University.
Due to health issues, Gerry decided to focus more on a career in IT, and stopped performing for over 30 years before deciding to come back to the stage in 2015.
Musical influences range from singer/songwriters Joni Mitchell and James Taylor, the R&B sounds that Gerry was surrounded by while growing up in Northwest Indiana:
"The beautiful Mexican ballads my parents used to sing at home, and the classical and jazz music I studied while in College have been my main influences. Music that has touched my life in some way."
