-Dave Bull - DJ CBFM Radio Costa Blanca, Spain


Born and raised in New York City, Jeremy Bar-Illan is a guitarist, music composer and producer in multiple genres who has been recording and performing since 1979. As a member of The Moberlys and The Touchtones in the early 80s, he became known as a pioneer of the Power Pop genre with multiple album releases which to this day are being re-released in Japan and Europe. Jeremy has received tremendous acclaim for his blues guitar, often compared to the likes of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. His latest album of blues classic will be released in October of 2016.

One of Jeremy's new projects, a nine piece funk and R&B orchestra called Dragonfly 13, just released their debut album.

In 2014 Jeremy was presented with the President's Volunteer Service Award for his work with non-profits with music as a focus. He has been volunteering with Musicians On Call since January of 2011 with over 300 bedside performances donated. He is the founder and director of a non-profit organization, The Purple Hat Foundation, which is a conglomerate of volunteer musicians who perform benefit concerts to raise awareness and funding for pediatric cancer patients and related programs.

Through these efforts, he lives his belief that music is a bridge to all of mankind and the universal language which can be harnessed to help create a better world.
