“In the Belly Of The Beast” by J-Cherry and the Strawberries, is part poetry, blues, and roots rock. A critical look at life, politics, and the world we live in. From “Lies”, to “Dirty Water”, the “Dog’s On Prozac”, and “The Illuminati”, just a few titles on this 13 track record. Here’s what critics have to say about J-Cherry and the Strawberries, “J-Cherry and the Strawberries took to the stage and played to a house that overflowed the music room and spilled out into the library. A local artist with a passion for music, lead singer J-Cherry, a.k.a. Jennifer Shafer Wood, plays her own soulful style of blues, poetry, and funk surrounded by an ethereal musical background.” David Gellar, Middletown Patch.

We are so excited to have recorded a live album at The Coffeehouse Recording Studio with Michael Arafeh in downtown Middletown, CT!  Over the last year we have worked diligently to complete "In The Belly Of The Beast". This is the last leg of the project, printing the album. We are seeking support from the community at large to help us bring this project to completion, and out into the world. We are proud to share this body of music and poetry with you! 

Thank you so much xoxoxo,

J-Cherry and The Strawberries

Risks and challenges

It is a challenge as an artist to make a dream into a reality. It's a challenge for anyone to make a dream into a reality. Where would we be if we didn't meet up to those challenges? Great things wouldn't happen! We'd be a world without color…

We have spent may hours practicing, writing, and creating the songs and poetry on this record. Our number one challenge is money, but it will not stop us! If we do not reach our kickstarter goal, we will finish this project! We have already invested $3,000 in the studio, it may take us longer without support, but it will be done!
