Jeremy Messersmith:


Born in Charleston, SC and raised in rural Washington, singer-songwriter jeremy messersmith began playing music in church at a young age, and like many homeschoolers, counts Sandi Patti, Carman, DC Talk and Michael W. Smith amongst his earliest musical influences. After a promising trumpeting career was tragically cut short due to braces, jeremy turned to the guitar as his instrument of choice and eventually relocated to Minneapolis to study music. A thoughtful, clever lyricist with a tender voice, jeremy crafts songs that are catchy and relatable, and span the emotional gamut from poignancy to whimsy. The forthcoming album Late Stage Capitalism, jeremy’s second release on Glassnote Records, is due out in early 2018.
