Jeremy James Meyer is a renaissance man, a builder, and a seeker. Born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon; he would attend folk music and dance camps up and down the West coast. Steeped in sea shanties, and old-time, ballads and ragtime, he developed a taste for the folk arts. As an aspiring songwriter, making the transition was natural when he set down the violin, at age 14, to pick up the guitar. By his early twenties, he had begun taking on a more calculated approach to songwriting; and, as young folk are want, when equipped with tools, instruments and a mind keen to roam, he hit the road. Traveling throughout the Western states and beyond.
The road is never straight, and in some cases, barely paved. Through the ups and downs, Jeremy has been finding clarity in his voice. As a writer, he seeks out feeling and sensation in a song. To dwell in its matter, and absorb and regurgitate the most rudimentary and personal aspects. As a guitar player, he has honed his style into a well blended Americana caricature, pulling influences from country, ragtime, blues and folk to soul, hip-hop, and rock n' roll.
Jeremy has played with a variety of west coast acts, including The Honey Mountain Do-Dos, Caitlin Jemma & The Goodness, Margo Cilker. You can see him performing solo or with an ever growing cast of characters including: Michael Steinkirchner, Steven Derwinski, Brett Sisun, Owen Cook, Adam Keil, Matt Takiff, Joshua Borankay, Brooks Schmitt, Lee Bones, Spencer Keiz, Dan Klee and Gabe Schliffer.
