Biography

Jeremy Borer grew up performing musically onstage throughout his childhood in Fair Lawn, NJ - a suburb of New York City. He began his solo career while studying music at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. While there, he studied guitar and voice and built a loyal following of fans before heading to NYU to get a Masters Degree in Music & Production. He quickly got his feet wet in the New York City music scene, playing at open mics and acoustic cafes.

Two years in the city and one CD later, you can catch Jeremy Borer live throughout the Northeast performing solo with his acoustic guitar or in full force with his 3 piece band of talented musicians. His debut CD, SPLIT AT THE SEAMS, is self-produced & engineered, and mixed by longtime NYC producer/engineer Godfrey Diamond (Aerosmith, Lou Reed). The album offers an organic texture that is a result of the songs (likened to Coldplay & Dave Matthews), Jeremy’s vocals (influenced by Jeff Buckley & Toad the Wet Sprocket), and the band’s rhythmic and harmonic instrumentation.

Jeremy recently launched a Northeast College Radio Campaign, resulting in extensive radio play from 80+ stations.

Lyrics

Different World

Written By: Jeremy Borer

Verse 1:
You know that I fall back down
Just to crawl back up to find my own
Melody calling me
Like a ring on a telephone that I can't pick up.

Pre-chorus:
But I know
That I won't fall

Chorus:
'Cause I believe in a different world
Somewhere I can call my own
Where I can wait if I should crawl
Somewhere I can never leave my place to grow

Verse 2:
You know when I write a song
I lock the whole world up inside of a plastic cup
Of memories warning me
To step off of that cliff to fly back home

Pre-chorus:
But I know
That I won't fall

Chorus:
'Cause I believe in a different world
Somewhere I can call my own
Where I can wait if I should crawl
Somewhere I can never leave my place to grow

Bridge:
When I look at the mirror
Tell me what will I see
Well I won't fall down
When I look at the mirror
What will I see

Chorus:
That I believe in a different world
Somewhere I can call my own
Where I can wait if I should crawl
Somewhere I can never leave my place to grow

Breathe Life

Written By: Jeremy Borer

Verse 1:
Fields of a lifetime
Cycle from green to grey
Patches may change to cover up
Wounds for the following day

Streams of wind may scar the surface
While rains melt the tides of her face
Closer and deeper the burrow lies
Removing the mask unearthing an honest taste

Chorus:
When faced with an image of day to day
Everything seems to indicate
That we're OK we're understood on the same
Page turns, the story breathes life and awakes

Verse 2:
I gathered my thoughts to believe in
In anything that's not quite the same
As the preachers of savior and promises
They'll leave it behind unearthing an honest taste

Chorus:
When faced with an image of day to day
Everything seems to indicate
That we're OK we're understood on the same
Page turns, the story breathes life and awakes

Bridge:
The moment crashes down
The break of a wave
on the shore line, continuous time in space
Unknown and endless, we awake
