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 lap steel guitar.
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 5, 2023 I have released 40 solo albums. My current album is "4D" which is a pop/rock album of all original songs.
