Music with Jeremy Keen


Guitarist/singer/songwriter - Jeremy is adept at finding inspiration in the most uninspiring and mundane of daily activities, usually, resulting in songs steeped in escapism, of love lost, or of drinking beer in the basement. Many times, it is all three at once. His music draws inspiration from the likes of Neil Young, The Beatles, Sufjan Stevens, Wilco, The Byrds, and Ryan Adams.
