Jeremiah Clark / Bio

[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 as a grown-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, dances and the like, Jeremiah was cutting his first demo at 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, Ft. Lauderdale to Portland, Maine, audiences embraced the new voice in their ears, and it would be heard for the next three 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 Portland, Oregon in late 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. The company will drop it's first album, Jeremiah Clark's self-titled debut later this year. The first single, "Practicing Lines," is accompanied by a music video shot on location in Los Angeles.

[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.
