Jerry Fulton Cantrell Jr. (born March 18, 1966 in Tacoma, Washington) is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter best known for his work with the grunge band Alice in Chains, as guitarist and co-lyricist. He performs lead vocals on his solo projects, and was part of Alice in Chains’ harmonizing dual-vocal style. He currently co-resides in Los Angeles and his family ranch in the small city of Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

Jerry Cantrell would serve in Alice in Chains as the lead guitarist, co-lyricist, co-vocalist and main composer, until the group’s near-permanent hiatus in the late 1990s after lead singer Layne Staley prolonged battle with drug addiction, which was followed by his subsequent death in 2002 from a drug overdose. Although he and Staley each wrote about half of the lyrics in their catalog, Cantrell wrote or co-wrote most of the music.

Since Staley’s death in 2002, the band has reformed with its surviving members. Beginning in 2005, Cantrell has joined Alice in Chains in a number of performances featuring singers such as Maynard James Keenan, Mark Lanegan, James Hetfield, Phil Anselmo, Scott Weiland, and William DuVall. Although he acknowledges the benefits of working as a solo artist, Cantrell has expressed his happiness with being back in the band culture.
