Biography

Spiral Arm is the solo project of Jeremy Reed Watson, lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Bluekarma. Bluekarma formed in 1998 and won the Dayton Band Playoffs the following year. Throughout their career they had the honor of playing with bands such as, Billy Corgan's Zwan, Our Lady Peace, Evanescence, Blind Melon, Plain White T's, Joan Jett, Shine down, Trapt, and many more.

With Bluekarma taking a hiatus in 2007, Jeremy began writing music on his own. With a tremendous passion in amateur astronomy and spirituality he melded the two into one and called it, Spiral Arm; which is a term for the band of stars in a spiral galaxy. Our own solar system residing in the Orion band of the Milky Way galaxy inspired the first song he wrote for the album titled, “Orion.”

“After that, the songs just seemed to pour out of me,” says Jeremy, who wrote, performed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered the album in his home recording studio.

With the belief that every single thing is a miracle he set out to make a magical record with worldly sounds and spiritual uplifting lyrics to transcend hope to everyone who listens. He titled the record Sacred Space in honor of the sacred Universe we live in.

“A great deal of my music has been inspired by my family. Dealing with the loss of my sister at the early age of 11 has really impacted me and changed the way I look at things on a day to day basis, especially when I write a song,” Jeremy states.

When listening to Sacred Space it is evident from the very first track that he yearns for life to go on forever. In the song “Dreaming” he is singing about the lucid dreams his mother has for her lost daughter. In the last track “After The Storm” he insists he will see her again.

But death is not the focus of the album. It is very much a record about life and love. Jeremy notes, “I made this record so that as many people as possible could hear it and feel something so profoundly awesome...love.” These feelings emanate in songs like “Lady of the Forest”, an ode to Mother Nature herself, and “The Fire”, which very well could be the song that gets everyone's attention.

With the release of his debut album now available on iTunes and many other online distributors, Jeremy is very excited to bring his sound to the stage for many ears to hear and continue to write and record for many, many years to come.

The Fire

Written By: Jeremy Reed Watson (ASCAP) Fire In The Sky (ASCAP)

fire in the earth fire in the heaven fire in my heart fire in my spirit hold on to the fire
fire in the sky awakens angels by my side tonight hold on to the fire burning as the night grows silent, i pry my open mind hold on hold on hold on
hold on to the fire
do you know the secret to life? sometimes i think so do you have the will to survive? i will not let go
hold on to the fire
live the wisdom of the ages with a solemn mind hold on hold on hold on it is our birth right to hold the flame and shine it bright hold on to the fire are you conscience? are you free? are you the one who holds the key? hold on hold on hold on hold on to the fire
do you know the secret to life? sometimes i think so do you have the will to survive? i will not let go
hold on to the fire
lost at sea your scared to death, you feel you may never find your way back home just turn your head, youʼll see the fire on the shore, its burning bright its flames your guide, to bring you home tonight safely by my side
do you know the secret to life? sometimes i think so do you have the will to survive? i will not let go
hold on to the fire do you know the secret to life? sometimes i think so do you have the will to survive? i will not let go hold on to the fire
hold on to the fire hold on hold on to the fire hold on
hold on to the fire hold on, hold on

Peace Where The Fern Grow

Written By: Jeremy Reed Watson (ASCAP) Fire In The Sky (ASCAP)

brand new day with new frustration kill the lights and lay your head down forget about those yesterdays they donʼt have you anyway
if only i had seen it coming iʼd know where to run now, iʼd know where to hide if only i had seen it coming iʼd know where to run now, iʼd know where to hide
brand new eyes that take the world in brand new soul to wash the dirt clean but they donʼt know the troubles here the sky above them never ends
if only i had seen it coming iʼd know where to run now, iʼd know where to hide if only i had seen it coming iʼd know where to run now, iʼd know where to hide
ohh no need to hide from your desires ohh no need to fear this world my child ohh billions of light years burn behind you ohh embrace this land we live and die here
donʼt stop dreamin the ghosts say, believe them donʼt take my halo thereʼs peace where the fern grow
ohh ohh if only i had seen it coming iʼd know where to run now, iʼd know where to hide if only i had seen it coming iʼd know where to run now, iʼd know where to hide
ohh no need to hide from your desires ohh no need to fear this world my child ohh billions of light years burn behind you ohh embrace this land we live and die here

The Rain

Written By: Jeremy Reed Watson (ASCAP) Fire In The Sky (ASCAP)

like to feel the rain on my skin that soothing sound, and here it comes again like to feel the sky falling down bringing life right out of the ground
ohh let it come down ohh let it fall
holding out my hands to catch the rain ohh it makes me feel so new again the moon, it hides behind the clouds above floating there, glowing from the sun
ohh let it come down ohh let it fall ohh let it come down ohh let it fall
rain, rain, wash away all the sins of another day rain, rain, from above sky father showers us with love...

Our Love

Written By: Jeremy Reed Watson (ASCAP)

from the mountains to the deep blue sea my love will follow me we can go anywhere with our love through the forests and the fields weʼll run countless hours in the warm sun
so much to behold with our love
our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere
no star is out of reach, beyond the galaxies into the great unknown with our love forever through space and time your hand inside mine
we will go everywhere with our love
our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere
when we take our last breath remember what i said our spirit will carry on with our love
our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere our love can go anywhere
