The last couple of months I have been working on Big Band arrangements re-working material from my last 2 albums. It's sort of a rebirth of my music and it's been incredible to see it develop. I love brass, particularly low brass - and now I get to surf the horn wave live in concert. My dear friends/arrangers Dave Richards, Jamey Tate and David Ricard have created some seriously beautiful arrangements and I am honored to be debuting this material with the TipToe Big Band in Denmark! See Tour page for details.

My former boss, dear Sir Rod Stewart, a man who I learned so much from over the past 4+ years as his backup vocalist, tweeted my album. As we all know, tweets come and go so bloody fast, in the blink of an eye, they are gone. But that's what websites are for! To hold onto precious moments from incredible (and sexy) men with the absolute sharpest fashion ever ever ever...
Last week, radio stations around the country have added songs from my new album "Til They Bang On The Door" to their rotations! Listen out for it...
Soooo, next weekend in Miami, Snarky Puppy will be hosting the first GroundUP Music Festival for 3 days from Feb 10-12! The line up is ridiculously amazing - Esperanza Spalding Laura Mvula Nikka Costa John Medeski Bill Laurance to name a few. There will be clinics, workshops, masterclass and jams every night and I am pretty sure I will lose my voice by Monday morning. I'll be playing Feb 11 with my boys and part of a songwriting workshop with my compadres later that day. Then on Valentine's Day, I start my 2 week tour in Miami! See Tour page for more info!
Now available in ash and baby blue in all sizes on the Merch page!

Jeremy digs deep into the stories behind the songs of recording artists and their writing. Bits and pieces of the music that shaped me are peppered into this podcast including my favorite aria from La Bohème and jingles I've recorded. Check out the other podcasts - very cool!
