Metalhead Jeris Johnson Craves for Blood and Love at the Same Time
Jeris Johnson, a former metalhead turned TikTok musician, focuses on bringing back rock into the future. His debut album, I Want Blood/ I Want Love, has just dropped to mark the beginning.
Musician Jeris Johnson, 25, has just returned after his first tour. He wore a hat with the message of “Make Rock Great Again” encrypted. Johnson also claims himself as the future of rock music in the present day. He believes that rock music has been sticking to the mud for a very long time.
He says that the melody music industry is prevailing, thereby shadowing rock music. This genre of music is not capturing the attention of the younger generation. For this reason, Johnson thinks that it is deteriorating and will eventually vanish. He has released his debut album I Want Blood/ I Want Love, which proves to be the rock fountain of youth.
Jeris was born to musician parents. His mother was a vocalist, whereas his father was a drummer. No wonder the metalhead grew up surrounded by music. He released his earlier covers of rock music dating back to 2000. He posted covers of How You Remind Me by Nickelback and Never Too Late by Three Days Grace on TikTok.
He thinks that TikTok caters as the perfect platform for bringing in the genre of music speedily. Myspace, Tumblr, and various other sites helped the musical industry rise over the last two years. Johnson uses the platform of TikTok as the stage where he gains the confidence of bringing out his larger-than-life persona.
He grew up listening to all the 2000s radio rock, and his covers helped him bring traction to his tracks. Jeris has been influenced and collaborated with Chad Kroeger, Bring Me the Horizon, Oli Sykes, etc. His latest release, I Want Blood/ I Want Love, portrays two of his extreme sides. One side is ready to take charge of the rock scene, while the other is sentimental.
Johnson believes that the dual tone of his album has the probability of surprising his followers. His parent’s constant support has made him gain confidence, and he can’t wait to see what lies ahead. He started playing the piano and drums just at the age of 2.
Jeris has become so ambitious about rock music he wants to set its standard high. He believes that the universe is waiting for him to conjure rock music.
