About

I’m headed back into the studio to make my new album Spirit… 

 After touring extensively last year, I started to dream up an album of new songs focused mostly on my voice & guitar...reaching for the mysterious & soulful exchange of a live concert performance and then capturing that sense of immediacy onto a record somehow.

 One voice, one guitar....a melody and a lyric... a song and a story... spacious music that leaves plenty of room for the Spirit's presence to be felt in the quiet, raging beauty. 

Much of the album will be recorded live (vocal, guitar or piano) in the studio with minimal overdubs...we will capture the moment and then be adding in a string quartet, french horn, orchestral percussion and a few other elements to keep things classy...it's going to be gorgeous!

 Ben Shive is onboard for string arrangements and Cason Cooley will be producing some of the tracks. We're assembling an incredible team of musicians and engineers to come alongside of these songs!

I believe this will be my best album yet because it will be so direct and emotionally bare… and I need your help to make it all happen. 

 Why Do I Need Your Help? 

Touring musicians face a lot of financial & business realities that are totally different than they were a few years ago. 

 Here’s why that’s so great…. It gives me a chance to build partners and benefactors around what I am doing on the front end. 

 It’s such an honor to act as a conduit for this community of patrons who believe in me & my music. 

You are essential to this task. You are essential to this art being made. 

 I'd love to have your support of this project!

Risks and challenges

I am aiming for a late August release date for the digital download + PDF booklet.

I will of course post updates on my Kickstarter blog to keep you all informed of progress as it all comes together.

There is a possibility that it could get delayed but I don’t anticipate it at this point.

Physical CD’s, T-shirts and Moleskine Journals will ship 2-3 weeks after the digital release of the album. I’ll have to wait on items to get back from manufacturing but once I have them, I will ship them out right away.

Hatch Show Print Posters take a bit longer than the other items since they are hand-made and limited edition. I expect them to ship by early October.

For T-shirts, I’ll contact you via Kickstarter to get your T-shirt size before I order.

Shipping:
We’ve worked really hard to keep shipping costs super affordable & easy, as well as planning the backend of the campaign for order fulfillment once the album releases next Fall.

Your support means a lot us and we take that very seriously.

I’m excited to walk through this process with all of you and see what we can accomplish together! Any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me here. Thanks so much!

    Church Hymn Sing, Concert & Seminar

    Jeremy comes to your church to lead an Indelible Grace Hymn Sing & share some songs from the new album. Before the Hymn Sing & Concert, Jeremy will teach an hour-long seminar on worship by Indelible Grace founder Kevin Twit called "Why We Still Need Hymns". This is a great way to get folks connected with the idea of singing the Gospel out-loud and why it matters so much to think critically about what songs we choose to sing in worshipping the Lord.

    As a contributing artist in the Indelible Grace hymns movement, Jeremy has a deep love for leading corporate worship and teaching others about the beauty and truth found in the old hymns of the church.

    This is a great event to host for your church worship teams, pastoral staff & congregation as a Gospel-saturated resource and community building event.
