Jerry Diaz is a songwriter, solo performer, and founder of the band "Hanna's Reef." The son of a merchant marine (R.L. Diaz) from the coast of Venezuela, and an artist (Irene Rivera) from Mexico, Diaz has both the nautical spirit and the gypsy flair running through his veins. Born and raised on the upper Texas coast, Jerry gives listeners a glimpse of the coastal lifestyle in just about every song he writes. From songs about Key West, Florida, to songs about New Orleans, and the Texas beach towns that he's grown up in, Diaz takes you on a musical journey of boats, beaches and bars.
