Biography

Jerry Riopelle is a musician and record producer raised in Tampa, Florida, and known primarily for his hard rock performances and for his record production.

Riopelle began his music career in the 1960s in Los Angeles working as an independent record producer. He played drums for the Hollywood Argyles and later signed with Screen Gems as a staff song writer. At Screen Gems, he wrote and produced, along with Clydie King, a single called “The Thrill is Gone”. This exposure helped Riopelle land staff writer and producer job with Phil Spector at Philles Records.

Riopelle produced his first Top 20 single, “Home of the Brave,” which was recorded by Bonnie & The Treasures. He later produced top 40 singles for The Parade and April Stevens & Nino Tempo. This led to an opportunity to work as an A&M Records producer and a role as a staff writer at Irving Music.

Riopelle produced and wrote for The Parade, Brewer & Shipley, We Five, and Shango. His songs have been covered by Leon Russell, Herb Alpert, Kenny Loggins, Rita Coolidge, Meat Loaf, and others. Jerry also wrote various pieces for Hollywood TV shows and films.
