BandBluesSinger/Songwriter

Imagine if Jeff Buckley and Janis Joplin had a love child. Now throw in some melancholy ala Thom Yourke, a similar sound to Patty Griffin, some heart-breaking blues, vulnerability, a little Antony and the Johnsons and a whole lot of passion, and there you have Jeremy Wilson.

Biography

Jeremy Wilson started singing before he even knew how to speak. He received many accolades throughout his youth, including many outstanding performance awards as well as the honor of being the first student in his high school's history to make the Iowa All-State Chorus four years in a row. Upon graduation from high school, Jeremy went to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, where he was immersed in music, theatre, and dance. After graduating from AMDA, Jeremy was cast in his first professional show based solely on his musical showcase and without an audition. However, his career was ground to a hault on September 11, 2001 and he was sent crawling back to Iowa. However, the blessing in disguise is that Jeremy discovered his true passion in that move... songwriting. Since that time, Jeremy taught himself how to play guitar and has been writing music and performing every chance he could to rave reviews. It is now time to take his career to the next level and start recording and getting his music out there!

Lyrics

Love Song To No One

Written By: Jeremy Wilson

If you needed to mourn, I would be a shoulder to cry on
and if you needed to soar, I'd be a wind for you to fly on
If you needed to bloom, I'd be the ground and tend to your seed
and if you wanted the moon, I would take the sky and lay it down at your feet
But I've been waiting so long to find you, my love never fading
So if you're hearing this song, know that I am here and patiently waiting
There are times in my life when I feel like I'm at the bottom of a long and lonely plight with no one to turn the light on
But then I close my eyes and I can feel you inside me
and I know that one day I'll find you
And so I forge ahead on this continuous journey to find out where you are
I can feel it coming though it hasn't even begun
So I'll just sit here strumming and sing you this love song to no one
You alone permit my revival
I long to be captive in your arms
You alone depict my survival from this world of constant pain and harm
So I'll continue searching
singing as I pass the time
Until the moment arrives when I am yours and you are mine

Bound To Come

Written By: Jeremy Wilson

All alone I stare out the window of my life
Lights draw around me till I'm gone
Searching for something unknown
I am getting tired
Tired of asking too tired to try
When I feel like nothing will ever come, that's when I look in your eyes
And I remember why I'm waiting
I'll wait so long until I find what's mine
Face to face with another
Another love
I can't ask you to choose
For I know I know the answer
Scared of winning
More scared to lose
And I feel like something is bound to come as soon as I open my eyes
And all this fighting and waiting
for oh so long will finally resign
I can feel it coming
Yes I feel it coming
When I feel like nothing will ever come, that's when I look in your eyes
And I remember why I'm waiting
I'll wait so long until I find what's mine
Cause I feel like something is bound to come as soon as I open my eyes
And all this fighting and waiting for oh so long will finally resign
And I feel it coming

I Believe It

Written By: Jeremy Wilson

Sometimes I wonder how I stand to persist in this world of subordination where a progressive view is considered out of line
But we must stand together raising a fist with an active determination to never relent relinquish or resign
For I believe that we can rise above all of the hypocrisy
As I perceive it what we need is a good dose of solidarity
It makes me sad when I see those who feel the need to wage war under false pretenses
And like a poison the need begins to infect
And tell me how many people must lose their lives before we finally learn the lesson that you can't have peace without respect
I believe that he who acts with an air of grim austerity should highly heed that day when he gets his reciprocity
I believe it
I know it's difficult to assimilate recognize our flaws and cast our differences aside
But we are capable of moving mountains and affecting change if we join as one and refuse to be denied
I believe it
So I'll keep praying for the day when we reach a tranquil conciliation and we can begin to amalgamate
For I believe that the time is right to begin this unity
