Biography

Jerry Doucette came by his talent and success naturally: his family are musicians by trade. As a youngster he would sit in on jam sessions with his father and Uncle Jim. The family picked up their MONTREAL stakes and moved to HAMILTON, Ontario when Doucette was 4 years old, and two years later he got his first guitar. Lessons soon followed at age 8 and he joined his first band, the REEFERS, at age 11. He remained with the group for five years then moved to Toronto, playing in various bands like TRIBE, BRUTUS, ABERNATHY SHAGNASTER, and HOMESTEAD. He hooked with Alexis, who was working on a deal with Mushroom Records out of VANCOUVER, and when she got signed, she asked him to make the trek out west. Nothing came of the Alexis recording sessions and so he answered the call for a guitarist for the SEEDS OF TIME, featuring future Prism co-founder Lindsay Mitchell. Six months later he joined the ROCKET- NORTON BAND (Norton also going on to be in Prism), but two years later he was tired of the local bar scene and retired.

After sequestering themselves for three months, Doucette emerged from the basement with three of the 16 demos he’d recorded and approached Shelly Siegel of MUSHROOM RECORDS. Siegel was so impressed that he asked for three more tunes, and Jerry returned the next day with them.
