Someone once said, “If music is a place — then jazz is the city, folk is the wilderness, rock is the road, and classical is a temple.”
With his small-town Missouri roots as a compass, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Myers artfully navigates this wilderness, stitching together his hopes, dreams, victories, and adventures in song to weave a vibrant tapestry of a distinctly American countryside that will make you feel right at home. From the small, curious child who taught himself harmonica to the dedicated adolescent who became a skilled guitarist, Jeremy has since captivated audiences with his skillful command of fiddle, mandolin, clawhammer banjo, and cello. His warm, silvery voice and expressive musicianship imbue his music with a comforting grassroots sound reminiscent of living-room jam sessions and Ozarks front porch storytelling.
Jeremy’s self-published solo debut album Johnny in the Briar Patch was released in 2008, offering his fans fiddle tunes, folk songs, and original compositions showcasing his authentic Ozarks style and sincere vocals that hearken to a simpler time and place. In addition to his solo performances, Jeremy has joined forces with such acts as Sunny Side Up, Hot Ash Stringband, and Peppersauce Alley, and is a veteran performer who’s enchanted large festival audiences and intimate coffee shop listeners alike. Some additional venue highlights have been Little Rock’s Arkansas Sounds Music Festival, Old-Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival in West Plains, Mo, and Wooley Creek Bluegrass Festival, and he can be seen monthly throughout the season at the Heritage Days festivals hosted by Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company. Jeremy also enjoys performing for local micro breweries/distilleries such as Wages Brewing Company, Rapp’s Barren Brewing Company, and Copper Run Distillery.
When he’s not playing music, Jeremy can be found honing his luthier skills crafting custom open-backed banjos for his own Snowbird Banjo Company.
