"Henrietta musician participates in 'Ugly Bands' competition"

Henrietta, N.Y. —
Acoustic singer/songwriter, Jeremiah Craig, has been a busy man after he released his first full-length solo album, Gardener Hands. The release party held on February 12th earlier this year is just a dot on the radar now that he has become a favorite to perform frequently at the Rochester Institute of Technology and being interviewed on 89.7 WITR’s “Rochester Sessions." These small successes still left Jeremiah Craig surprised after he was invited to compete in 100.5 The Drive’s 10 Ugly Bands Competition hosted at Lovin’ Cup.

“They emailed me the day before the first round and asked if I’d like to be involved,” Craig said. “I didn’t think I had much of a chance, coming in last minute, but my fans and I rallied and it ended up being one of the best shows I’ve ever played. My fans helped get me to the second round so I guess it's time to rally again!” The winner of the online voting second round gets to open the 10 Ugly Men Festival. Voting has started.

Craig is most excited about his upcoming show opening for Seattle-based band, Kay Kay and his Weathered Underground, at Water Street Music Hall on August 3. It will be the first time he has shared the stage with a popular touring band.

Craig has had an impressive first half of 2011 for a new artist. He has also started recording a small project to follow Gardener Hands, which is on track for a Fall 2011 release.
