Biography

Nashville-based Jeremy Lister started connecting with music from early childhood while growing up in the middle of Mississippi. A son of a preacher, he began singing and learning harmonies in church at the age of two. When his father would leave, he would sneak into his guitar case and start picking out chords. His older brother, Richie, was showing signs of becoming a virtuoso on the piano, and the two began collaborating and writing songs.

Rural Mississippi was not a friendly setting for a budding artist. Many problems arose for the Lister brothers, most notably Jeremy's hospitalization after a vicious group beating left him near death with severe head trauma. After recovering from the attack, Jeremy found himself feeling more empowered than ever to continue developing his creativity through music. At ages twelve and thirteen, he traveled through Europe with his parents. The trip changed his perspective on life and music, and opened his ears to bands from across the Atlantic. Upon returning to the States, he began exploring different musical outlets, ranging from an A cappella quartet to a progressive rock band.

Setting out on his own in 2003, Jeremy moved to Nashville bringing his first EP "Shooting Star" with him. Here he began playing writer’s nights and passing his CD along to anyone who would listen. In 2005, he released his second EP, "So Far," and quickly gained the attention of Warner Bros. Records. The label put him in the studio, where he wrote and recorded songs during '06.

In the spring of ‘07, Lister signed a record deal with WBR. His debut release, the "Just One Day" EP, was released digitally on November 20, 2007. More recently, Jeremy has toured with Brett Dennen and Colbie Caillat as well as selling out his own headlining shows in and around the Nashville area. He is currently working on songs for his full-length album to be released in 2009.
