About Jerry Cantrell
Jerry Cantrell is best known as the chief songwriter, lead guitarist, and vocalist for legendary Seattle rockers Alice in Chains, who distinguished themselves in the '90s grunge scene with their dark, heavy metal-forward sound. After the death of co-vocalist Layne Staley in 2002, Cantrell became the frontman, steering the group into the next decade and beyond. In addition to his work with AiC, Cantrell has navigated a successful solo career (Boggy Depot in 1998, Degradation Trip Volumes 1 & 2 in 2002, and Brighten in 2021) and has contributed material to multiple film soundtracks.
