Jerald Daemyon is an American electrical violinist born in Detroit, Michigan. Daemyon rose to fame in the mid-90’s with his debut album, Thinking About You.

The big-sounding Thinking About You was released independently on Jerald’s own label Jazzestra Records, before making its way around the urban radio market in the United States and world, where his urban-contemporary R&B sound was an instant airplay request and commercial sales success under the GRP/Universal Records label achieving national recognition as a chart topping smash on Billboard’s Magazine’s Urban and Contemporary Jazz Charts earning Best Contemporary Jazz Album, 1997.

A cut from that album, Summer Madness, a remake of the Kool and the Gang classic, received extensive radio airplay in 1997.

In 1995, Daemyon signed to the jazz company GRP Records, which was the first company to release all of his titles on compact discs. He also had a CD release in 2001 entitled, The Jerald Daemyon Group.
