All of us search for God... All of us search for what "inspires" us...
Jeremy Oliveria speaks clearly about this in debut radio release, "Hear the fire".
Growing up in a christian home, Jeremy always had some sort of weak belief in the concept of an all mighty God. As he grew older, he explored the possibilities of other religions and deities, but always came back to the idea of one all mighty God who created all things. Still, he did not recognize Jesus as God, just merely as a good teacher.
Falling in love with music at a young age, his life revolved around songwriting and performing. His only true desire was to write music and have it be heard. That's where the journey began to involve exploring different substances to "inspire" his creativity with new sounds. Through many life-threatening instances, he found himself at the bottom of himself, crying out for deliverance.
In 2009, at the end of his rope, God brought Jeremy's journey led him down to Mexico to live in an orphanage for handicapped kids. "Perspective... I got a huge perspective about life and ultimately Christ. Those kids ministered to me more then any sermon I had previously heard. God showed me how wicked I really was, and how blessed I had been. Some of the kids couldn't talk and had seizures all day long, and here I was complaining about how hot it was with no air conditioner! By serving these precious children, I learned what it meant to love someone, beyond any feeling, but for just who they were."
It's there where Jeremy was set free and began to feel the Holy Spirit work in his life. The Lord began molding him into who he was called to be.
"My inspiration and passion for creating was now fueled by an unquenchable fire to follow Jesus Christ," says Jeremy. His soul couldn't contain the potent truth of God's grace.
In the Summer of 2010, he was signed by National Christian Recording Artist Michael Robert, onto MR Music Group. Teaming up with esteemed Producer Ron Davis(engineer of "Shout to the Lord"), he recorded a powerful manifestation of spiritual truths through the expression of simple folk-infused acoustic psalms entitled "Prodigal Psalms".
In the fall of 2010, he recorded His first full single "Hear the Fire", produced by Michael Robert and Producer David Garcia (Chris and Conrad, Group One Crew.)
Jeremy has a great message for all believers, "Each one of us is a prodigal in our own way," Jeremy states, "each one of us has times we walk away from God, from what we know he is calling us to do. Walking with God is about learning to surrender all and rest in His perfect plan for our lives."
Jeremy will be touring full time in the Winter of 2010 through 2011.
