"Something about this music
touches the soul in a
respectful and subtle way.
Perhaps it is the charisma
and authenticity of Jeremiah’s
vocalization of
fl owing, naturally human
lyrics, or the tonal textures
created by the piano
that creates such an intriguing
sound. Whatever
“it” is, this young artist has “it” and is destined for great
things, expect a showcase you won’t forget." Playgrounds Magazine, Columbus, GA, Sept. '07 - playgrounds magazine

Rock ‘n’ roll never forgets, Bob Seger sings. Aptly, Jeremiah Meyer flaunts his influences like a Vegas showgirl on his debut EP, Rock ‘n’ Roll, with India.Arie, Elton John, Bob Seger and Fiona Apple having obviously graced the ears of this Birmingham, AL artist.
However, this is certainly not a showboat album. Its piano-driven pop explores many themes, from living dreams in the title track to love lost in “Not This Time,” traveling from hopeful to sullen and back again. “I’m Gonna Take My Clothes Off (And Make A Video)” adds a light-hearted critique of the music industry, and even Nelly might be surprised to hear “it’s getting hot in here” in the lyrics. Later, “1959” pays danceable homage to Elvis and to the budding genre from that year.

Though it would be easy to write him off as just another blue-eyed white boy playing piano and mimicking his favorite artists, Meyer’s rich voice makes the listener reconsider the hasty generalization. Though there are guitars, a keyboard and drums on the album, they only add depth to the music — Meyer’s voice and his piano remain focal points throughout.

Not only is Meyer a talented pianist, but also his lyrics are both smart and entertaining. His voice captures the intensity of his music without getting out of range, showing that the time he spent singing a cappella on a celebrity cruise gave him the experience he needed to put out an impressive debut.

Jeremiah loves the dollar theatre. “Saw Samuel L. Jackson in 'Snakes On A Plane' the other day,” the Huntsville songwriter says. I am creeped by the flick, unsurprised at its placement in the secondhand cinema. But, Jeremiah just laughs. “I actually liked the film.” He’s quite honest, likable in his shoulder shrugging. “The story’s totally unlikely in so many ways. I like that.”

Showbiz these days, especially for a songsmith, often hands its young seekers that exact label: Unlikely. Jeremiah gets this, knows it well, and spent seven hours last night in a makeshift Southside recording studio anyways. He polished up the fourth of five tunes for his second EP, “Stay,” a soulful piano-driven offering. Meyer, who’s been pounding the keys for nearly two decades now – “Away from the piano? I’ve not spent more than a week. And that’s a long time for me” – is as refreshing in his sound and persona as his story is improbable.

“I spent 6 months on a Celebrity Cruise,” Jeremiah says. “I sang acapella barbershop tunes, doo-wop, soul. Every week I hammered out Beach Boys to the crowds.” He’s beaming. “I loved it.” Jeremiah’s unapologetic affection for the show-business, a term I use in its best definition, glows and, before hearing J. pounce on the piano or fill the room with his crisp voice, I believe in him. A Nashville-transplant myself, Jeremiah is the first musician I’ve met who will gush over The Scissor Sisters and Rodgers and Hammerstein in the same 60 seconds. The Broadway stage recording of “The Producers” plays in his car stereo.

Jeremiah is quite a guy. He’s untucked, a bit messy, and somewhat of a gentle giant. His hands, though, shrink to fit the row of keys when he sits at a baby grand. Belmont University gifted him a piano scholarship, and he soaked up three years of musical education.

Hailing from a tour-de-Southland of cities, Meyer now lives in Huntsville, Alabama, playing every type of venue from the local Voodoo Lounge to festivals and weddings across the Southeast. "I played an indie music festival in New Orleans . . . a nightclub in Athens, GA where Michael Stipe bought my record!" He also teaches music lessons by day. Alabama takes it’s license tagline, ‘Stars Fall on Alabama,’ a song recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, as signal to the soft piece and their aerospace industry.

Ella hums, “Moonlight and magnolia, starlight in your hair. All the world a dream come true. Did it really happen? Was I really there?”

“Those old jazz players and voices,” Jeremiah says. “They play like they’ve got to get something out.” Meyer himself does the same, and his story, unlikely as it is, seems a silver dream just beginning.
