Jeromy Wallace
Jeremy Wallace is a blues, rock, singer/songwriter from New Jersey. He has performed at various venues on the East Coast, and has opened for artists such as Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond, and Freedy Johnston. Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song "Samson and Delilah" on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey.  Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he’s been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes (Tom Costagliola) and stand-up bass (Matt Gruenberg).   The best art is often dangerous, and Wallace’s art is dangerous in the same way Lou Reed is dangerous. He writes so well, he almost makes you believe his self-destructive lifestyle is a romantic deal.” -DON WILCOX
