Singer-songwriter Jeremiah Clark was born and raised in a small town outside of Memphis, TN. Country, rock-n-roll, gospel and soul brought about a sound in him that’s organic, refreshing and vocally-driven. Likened to acts such as Jason Mraz and Carrie Underwood, Jeremiah has toured the nation playing over 500 shows in just six short years for audiences as large as 10,000 people. His current single, “Ten Feet Tall on Tequila,” can be heard on SiriusXM Radio, as well as independent radio stations across the US. Now based out of the Los Angeles area, Jeremiah Clark is a name you’ll want to remember with a voice you’ll never forget.
Growing up in a Southern Baptist family deeply-rooted in the soil of Memphis, Tennessee, it’s no surprise that Jeremiah Clark’s passion for music has been handed down through several generations. “Music surrounded me from my very first memories. The joy, the drive, the love of music and making it was always celebrated in our home.” If you had asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, “musician” was always the answer.
Early in his adolescence, this young pioneer found himself standing before crowds of hundreds of people singing in local, regional and state choirs winning competitions and praise from many classically-trained professionals. In between long school days and extracurricular activities, when most teenagers were going to parties and dances, Jeremiah was cutting his first demo at the age of 14 followed by three self-produced albums before leaving for college.
In the years to follow, Clark found himself in musical cities like Atlanta and Nashville before journeying to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he settled and made quite a name for himself with a new disc in 2008. The “Leaving a Broken Heart” EP revealed a more mature perspective of acceptance, growth and understanding from the self-taught pianist and guitarist. Just months after re-entering the industry, Jeremiah joined DC-based Tom Goss on a national tour.
From Seattle to San Diego, Miami to Portland, Maine, audiences embraced the new voice in their ears, and it would be heard for the next five years all across the country, only now, as a headliner. Playing over 400 shows in 75+ cities, Jeremiah Clark is what you would call a road warrior. He’s taken planes, trains, automobiles and even a kayak once, playing everything from amphitheaters at music festivals to intimate, house concerts…and it doesn’t end there.
A relocation to the west coast in 2012 has allowed the singer-songwriter to fulfill his lifelong dream of opening an independent label, Mariposa Records Group, and publishing company, Fifth & Madison Publishing, ASCAP. The company released its first record on May 3, 2015, as Jeremiah Clark’s official, self-titled debut. The first single, “Ten Feet Tall on Tequila,” is currently spinning on SiriusXM’s The Highway as well as national airwaves on independent radio stations. His 2016 tour will be announced in early April.
It’s clear that he’s here to stay, folks. Jeremiah Clark is a name you’ll want to remember with a voice you’ll never forget.
