Jeremy Passion

This is the kind of music that I feel like I have to share with the world as soon as I hear it. I was hooked by the first few seconds of his first song that I heard (Greater is He) & I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this guy. I’m totally enjoying his unique blend of pop, R&B, gospel, & jazzy instrumentals, & I’m very impressed by the AMAZING production quality that accompanies the such positive messaging that comes through his music. For example, “Well Done” is an important reminder to cherish & make time to spend with those we love in life.

His talent shines through his music so brightly that it’s clear he has a gift for music – but most of all I can tell that he’s a really talented musician, as evidenced by all of the piano & guitar that he features in his songs. I see influences of a lot of different artists in his music, including John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Robin Thicke, BBMack, & perhaps a hint of Michael Buble? And more Bay Area pride because he’s based in SF! Take a listen to his 2 albums, “For More Than a Feeling” & “Pixelated – EP” below (fav songs: Greater Is He, Trace, This Ain’t The Way, Undefined, Lemonade, Pixelated, Paper Airplane)…

94117

So since I am currently a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, I figure I should show some pride & include some SF representation on this blog. Last night, I went to a cool event called TestPress in which music producers submit their electronic music tracks in a contest & the top 16 tracks get selected to be played in front of a live audience & 3 expert panelists. I really enjoyed the winning track of last night’s contest – a really groovy, jazzy piece of electronic music that really kept my interest from the soft lurking note droplets at the beginning to the bossa nova rhythm that brings the beat back after the break to the pleasantly surprising horn sample that appears near the end. I could definitely see this being played in a lounge type atmosphere, like in the lobby of The W Hotel 🙂

Titled “94117” to represent the influences of the city of San Francisco, check out the track below from an artist called Lemur:
