It's been close to five years since singer-songwriter Green Gerry left Athens to return to his native California. Gerry has kept busy since then, following up his 2013 sophomore record, King Baby, with a string of singles released over the summer on L.A.-based label Hit City U.S.A. A combination of frustration with the music industry and despair over current events led him to release his third effort, Electric Iron, on his own, with all proceeds going to charity.
Flagpole caught up with Green Gerry to talk about the newest record, industry woes, and plans for the future.

When Caleb Keith isn’t moonlighting as a country singer and songwriter, he’s a doctoral candidate at the University of Georgia’s Institute of Higher Education and the senior coordinator for assessment and research in the Department of Student Affairs, Assessment and Staff Development. A full-fledged Dawg who pursues his musical passions on the side, his life encompasses two different takes newcomers and outsiders have on the promises and opportunities of this tight-knit college town.
Keith will be chasing a different dream soon, once he relocates to Arkansas and begins a new career at the University of the Ozarks. In anticipation of his farewell show this Saturday at Flicker, Keith talked to Flagpole about his overall Athens experience.
