My name is Dropjaw Bertone. I am a songwriter/producer/musician from Gainesville, Florida. Since I was six years old I have been involved in music and performing. My dad's band would rehearse at our house and the drummer would leave his drums there after they were finished rehearsing and I would play on them. After a few days, my dad and I began having our own rehearsals together (my dad playing guitar and/or piano) and within a few weeks I performed for the first time in public with his band. From that point on I have been a full-time musician in my heart and soul and taught myself drums, bass, guitar, keyboard, harmonica and lapsteel.

I released my first solo album "D.N.A." (Dropjaw's New Album) in September, 2005 featuring 10 original songs on which I perform all instruments and vocals. As of November 19, 2018 I have released a total of 27 solo albums. My current album is called "To Drop For".

My dream is to have my songs heard and appreciated around the world. I pursue that dream every day with a passion. Songwriting is my main focus and I love to write in as many forms and genres as possible. I hope you all enjoy my music and I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all soon!

Always with love,
Dropjaw Bertone
