Make Believe by Jeremy Gates



Jeremy Gates' music reflects his life style: a beautiful, ever-changing work that meanders through existence; questioning, growing, changing direction on a whim; going where it wants rather than where it is told to or expected to go; making use of all influences to create a reality.

Creating Reality. This is the concept underlying his debut album, Make Believe. To Make Believe is not to be Fake or to Pretend, but to Make, or Create, your Beliefs, that thing that we accept as our Reality. Jeremy spent three years in Portland, OR concepting and creating this album which draws on influences from folk to classic rock, alternative to classical, using pointed and poetic lyrics and and ever-moving music, building intricate harmonies and counter melodies to convey ideas in a beautiful and artistic way, allowing the listener into a small piece of his Make Believe.

As soon as Jeremy finished his album and had it printed, he took to the open road by means of his bicycle with an acoustic guitar and a ukulele, traveling to wherever the road takes him, moving at his own pace - a pace that allows him to experience the world, and sharing his music whenever the opportunity arises. Whether it be playing for a few other people he meets camping on his journeys, playing a house show, or playing at an established venue, Jeremy enjoys being able to share his world with others.
