His first release, Midst Of The Storm, was a 7-inch vinyl single (EP) on the Spanish label Elefant Records. An album, Calling Out To You, followed on Japanese label Quince Records in 2004 and on Neon Tetra Records (UK) in 2005. Producers included Duglas T. Stewart (BMX Bandits), Duncan Cameron (Riverside Studios) and David Scott (The Pearlfishers). The Sore Feet Song was used as a theme to Japanese animated TV series Mushishi[1] and released in Japan as a CD single through Marvelous Entertainment. The series has since aired in several countries and was released on DVD in America, Australia and the UK as well as being made available on Netflix.

Kerr has spent time touring in Asia (Japan, Singapore, Philippines, Taiwan, China) and Europe. In June 2015 Kerr embarked on a headlining tour of China covering 10 cities following a 2013 trip to the country to play at two festivals.

His third album, Viva Melodia was recorded with Marcus Mackay at The Diving Bell Lounge studio in Glasgow, and was produced by Biff Smith (The Starlets / A New International).
