Gerry Granahan – 2012

Singer-songwriter Gerry Granahan earned 3 Gold Records in the late 1950s before moving behind the desk to become one of the most successful record producers of the 1960s.

Hailing originally from Pennsylvania, Gerry Granahan has been a Rhode Island resident for the last 50 years. In just three short years, from 1957 to 1960, Gerry reached the heights of the music business as a performing singer-songwriter and producer earning three Gold Record awards along the way: “Click-Clack” by Dicky Doo & The Dont’s, “You Were Mine” by The Fireflies, and “No Chemise, Please” under his own name.

He then moved behind the scenes to become one of the youngest record executives in history, first at his own Caprice Records and then at two major labels, United Artists and Dot, where he continued to produce dozens of hits in the ’60s and early 1970s including smash hits by Jay & The Americans and Patty Duke and a series of best-selling albums by comedian Pat Cooper.
