After raising her son and overcoming the hardship of a difficult divorce, Kerri embraced her passion and returned to making music. As a result, she released a self-titled EP in 2014 and started playing out again. Fact of the matter, the EP was produced simply for merch sales. Even so, she was encouraged to mail the disc to a host of radio stations that report to The Roots Radio Chart. Unbelievable as it seems, and with zero promotion or publicity assistance, radio re-acted and the little merch CD landed the #1 spot on the Roots Radio Chart….and many critics’ list of “Top 50 Folk Albums of 2014.”
