The Dark Music of Dreams
Send Me Word When You Get Back is a concept album built around ten dreams: each instrumental and song on the album were inspired by particular dreams that Jeremy awoke from and recorded over the years and turned into prose poems and lyrics. A classically-trained pianist, guitarist and composer who later devoted himself to folk and rock music, Jeremy has combined on this album the rigorous compositional approach of classical music with the direct appeal of folk songs and the hard-driving intensity of rock.
Jeremy wrote and recorded the album after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016, which funded the equipment, software and time necessary to complete the project. He performed all the parts himself, working mostly out of his own home studio in Oakland and a friend’s studio in nearby Martinez. The album’s music is dark and rich, and the songs deal with themes of love, loss, and longing. Listen to the first track below:
