This singer-songwriter from north London debuted this spring with the wonderful album A Solitary Man. The music of Jonathan Jeremiah takes you back in time: it is warm, organic and passionately honest. The Englishman can touch any heart with his baritone. In addition, he is a guitarist with his own, completely unique style. As a child in London he dreamed of America and he first actually visited the country (California) as a teenager in a student-exchange program. Jeremiah later returned seeking inspiration. You can clearly hear the influence of The Beach Boys and producer Phil Spector in the rich arrangements of the songs he recorded with Duffy's producer Bernard Butler. In Rotterdam he will be performing his own compositions with the highly praised Metropole Orkest. "And that really is a dream come true," according to Jeremiah.
