Jerry JJ Young Original Music with Gerald Martin Davenport
Jerry JJ Young pens Little Miss Kyriè on the day she was born.
“On December 30, 1992, my Daughter, Kyriè was born. (Yeah, thanks for the sympathy) Jerry Young, one of my brother-in-laws, wrote, for some strange reason, a little lyric titled Little Miss Kyriè.
To make a long story, nine years to be exact, short, I will just say that I was fiddling with the guitar (technically you would fiddle a fiddle and strum a guitar, but I did not want to write that because it would have been too long, and I am trying to make a long story short, so that would have been silly of me to write something long instead of short… Hmm.)
I was strumming the guitar when I came across this chord progression; it sounded a bit country to me and I liked it. I quickly threw together an arrangement; halfway through this process, I remembered Jerry‘s, Little Miss Kyriè, after nine years and found them buried with all of my other lyrics that I would like to finish, one day.
Guess what? The lyrics fit; almost like they were meant for it. I did have to rearrange some verses and add some lines to the chorus, after I asked Jerry if he wanted to do it or was it OK for me to.
It is a fun, danceable, sing-a-long, and happy tune. I am not sure if Jerry liked it or not, because it took him a month to get over hear and listen to it before I finished it, but I know Kyriè likes it!!”
