Naked Jeremiah was formed in 2008 and plays, primarily, acoustic and folk music.

Though I took some guitar classes in FSU, and wrote, at most 3 songs since I graduated in 2001, music was never on the radar for me until last year. An uncanny wave of inspiration washed over me without notice. Though I enjoyed writing, I'd never really written lyrics (except for the few songs I wrote back in my college years). Lyric upon lyric would just come to me; melodies began ringing loud and clear in my head. It was the only way I could express the spiritual tension/struggle I was/am going through. Fundamental truths that cemented my thinking, i.e., salvation, grace, redemption, began to crack when my personal experiences did not mirror these religious ideas. As questions about reality poured into my mind, I began to feel the rift between my faith and what I considered to be 'real' . All I could do was write my feelings and experience into song.

When I began writing I found inspiration in amazing musicians like Nick Drake, Alexi Murdoch, Coldplay (couldn't get enough of the music video for Shiver), Iron and Wine, of course Bob Dylan, Feist, Kings of Convenience, Whitest Boys Alive, Radio head, U2 (the saints of Rock n Roll) I continue my quest for musical inspiration in bands and musicians like the Velvet Underground, the Who, Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, Tom Petty, John Mellecamp, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Eddie Veddar, M. Ward, Andrew Bird (genius) and others.

Musically, I focus on fleshing my lyrics into a simple melody and rhythm that allow my thoughts to speak for themselves. I try to uncomplicate the song-writing process by listening to musical arrangements that naturally fit my words.

Currently, writing songs is my vehicle to understand my doubts, react (critically and positively) to all sorts of 'isms' (absolutism, relativism, idealism, realism, objectivism, subjectivism, pluralism...), listen to my inner thoughts and in the end chase after the allusive answers to God, truth and a life well-lived.
