Jeremy Morris / Press

“Jeremy (www.myspace.com/jeremyamorris) was next up, having gained this extra slot due to a cancellation. Through the first part of the set, you could see he was itching to jump over the rope that formed the boundary to the stage and before long, he had unleashed one end, and with a clear passageway, he did jump off and played up close and personal to the delighted audience, starting with his surf guitar medley, progressing through a bit of Beatles and Rolling Stones, some US TV themes we can’t recall the name off, plus loads of other instros. He included a couple of covers – “Gloria” telling us he knew the original as being by a Chicago band, The Shadows of Knight, and then “Wild Thing” starting at first in the Troggs style and then progressing to the famous Jimi Hendrix style. This man knows no boundrys and always does a great, great show.”

“Jeremy (www.myspace.com/jeremyamorris) is always the consummate performer – he enjoys playing and has unlimited passion and energy that ripples through the audience too, before being a full blown tsunami well before he hangs up his guitar. Just a few highlights were “Hearts On Fire” which is the title track from his most recent release for the charity Sweet Relief, Big House and a few Beatles numbers. His bassist Todd, performed one of his own numbers too, which sounded great. Jeremy asked for requests and The Beeb asked for “123 Red Light” and he obliged. A surf guitar medley helped to bring the best out of the crowd, and the energy drove Jeremy up onto the stage barrier, to do his high dive but hit his head on the PA system! Hope he doesn’t have too much of headache today!”

“Jeremy-He's one of the most genuine, nicest people on the pop scene, as well as one of the most prolific pop artists around. His gentle, John Lennon-influenced pop is as spiritual as it is melodic, and you can hear this for yourself on all of his CDs. This Michiganian can stake his rightful place in the IPO Hall Of Fame as he and his band have played more IPO festivals than anyone else! http://www.myspace.com/jeremyamorris”

“Sunday lunchtime is not typically a busy period for Liverpool as most people are still sleeping off the effects from the night before! However a decent sized crowd had gathered in the Cavern Pub to see Jeremy (www.myspace.com/jeremyamorris) play. Jeremy is the quintessential king of powerpop who appears at many, many IPOs and has been in Liverpool for as long as we’ve been attending. Unfortunately his flight to the UK was delayed so he missed his first slot from yesterday. Today would (schedule as it stood) be the only chance for us to see him this time around. Jeremy never disappoints any audience and today was no exception. His set did include some covers, such as “You Really Got Me” and “Instant Karma,” but he also had his own tunes going, such as “Pop Rules” which went straight into his surf medley complete with awesome guitar shredding which really grabbed the attention of one group of lads.”

“The reaction of the crowd told us they loved every minute. It was a great set, a fantastic reaction from the crowd and Jeremy even sneaked in a couple of extra songs and extended his set by about 10 minutes (although the sound engineer didn’t pull the plug, so that it must have been OK!). Backing vocals for a couple of numbaers were provided by two of the Swedish contingent, Per and Stefan, both IPO stalwarts.”

“A near-perfect collection of jangle-heavy power pop treats by independent artists from around the globe, some of recent and others vintage. It's the brainchild of musician/label owner/all-around good guy Jeremy Morris of JAM Records in Michigan, who has recruited two dozen artists to contribute tracks to the collection, whose proceeds provide financial aid for victims of hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters. Not only is the disc benefiting a good cause, but Morris's song selections are impeccable and, as a bonus, many of the tunes are rare or previously unreleased. The roster includes acts from Italy, UK, Scotland, USA Japan, Austria, Canada and Sweden. The songs are all consistently top-shelf and brimming with melodic invention and hooks aplenty. The Mayflowers "Get Over Time" is a powerfully kinetic updating of the "Day Tripper" riff, while DM3's "Foolish" is one of the most enduring power pop numbers of the past 20 years.”

John Borack - Goldmine Magazine

“Much of the collection relies on the sweet sound of gently ringing guitars to power the tunes. The Primary 5 (featuring former Teenage Fanclub member Paul Quinn), Dropkick, Cosmic Rough Riders, and Byrds disciples Starry Eyed and Laughing, all succeed mightily! Artists such as The Grip Weeds and Gravelberrys offer up marvellous tracks! Other instant grabbers include Greg Pope's "Fall Into Your Arms" which sounds like something that leaped straight off of Todd Rundgren's Something/Anything record. The Thick jangle of Daniel Wylie's "Make Love to the World" and two songs that bring to mind the layered low-key beauty of the late 70's/early 80's Britpop act The KORGIS: The Junipers "Gordie Can't Swim" and Paisley and Charlie's innocently gorgeous "Sebastian" (Come Home).”

John Borack - Goldmine Magazine

“Throw in previously released winners from The Records, Seth Swirsky, and Nelson Bragg, and a new one from Jeremy Morris himself (featuring some very "Eight Miles High"-inspired lead guitar) and it all adds up to one of the finest power pop comps of the past decade. Don't miss this one!”

John Borack - Goldmine Magazine

“Then it was back across the street to the Pub, to catch Jeremy once again. Jeremy (www.myspace.com/jeremyamorris) is your quintessential performer and can cope with any set back. Towards the end of his first number, he pulled the strap off his guitar when jumping from the stage and undeterred, put everything back together and started up again, with “Big House”, sharing the stage with local lass, Susan Hedges, who has a real bluesy soulful voice. After that, it was a different set to the one he played the day before, with “Big House” segued into “Revolution” this time before continuing into “Instant Karma”. A couple of covers followed, again with Susan supporting. Jeremy needed to retune his guitar but unfortunately managed to break a string. Rather than delay any further he called for a guitar to be loaned to him for the rest of his set, which included a surf instrumental piece, with Pipeline and Misserlou.”

“The audience levels at the IPO can be hit or miss and vary for no apparent reason. During Saturday’s slot on the back stage, the audience was sparse. Tonight, the Pub was full to overflowing which gave Jeremy little room to manoeuvre, so he climbed on the stage railings and played his guitar from there! There is not much else you can say about Jeremy – he over-ran his set but the audience really loved him and it was great to see him again.”

“The evening was just beginning, and next up was a firm IPO favourite (in fact this guy has played at more IPO’s worldwide than any other artist). Jeremy (www.myspace.com/jeremyamorris) loves music and you can see this in everything he plays. You never know how big the audience is going to be at the IPO, as people filter in and out of the stages with no rhyme nor reason and although the audience for this slot was sparse, Jeremy gave his all and even did his trademark, playing the guitar above his head, jumping off stage into the audience, and just being the great showman that he is. His blues song, “Big House” transformed into “Instant Karma” which worked really well. Passionate right to the end, he finished off with a Kinks cover, “You Really Got Me”. This is the strongest vocals we have ever heard from Jeremy, and really enjoyed his show.”

“JEREMY-YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER is the *best* Beatles tribute cd I have ever heard." Done as only Jeremy can do, the songs focus on the psychedelic era, and to great effect! The is one tribute cd that all Beatles fans will not want to miss.”

Beverly Paterson - Twist and Shake, Rock Beat International and Amplifier

“Only a few copies left of this one. 2003 release from prolific artist Jeremy Morris. On this stellar release, the style remains true to his pop roots exploring the sounds of Beatles, Byrds, Hollies, Big Star, etc.. merging with some psychedelic sounds and rings true with the jangly pop spirit of 60's and 70's pop! Harmonies galore, and Rick string guitars abound awash a shimmery and uplifting production! ..."Pop Dreams" proves to be his best yet. Now that's saying a mouthful, as everything Jeremy creates is fabulous.”

Beverly Paterson - Twist and Shake, Rock Beat International and Amplifier

“For those who enjoyed the pure power pop of "POP HEAVEN" this follow up CD picks right up wherethe last disc left off! "Another spanking new record from our boy Jeremy who must never eat or sleep because he is so busy making music! And beautiful music it is, regulated by angelic vocals, chiming guitars, mountain-sized hooks and inspirational lyrics. "Rare" is a colorful kaleidoscope of rapturous pop performances covering everything from the playful rock and roll of "Here We Go Now" to "Waiting There" a heart-stopping piano laced ballad... Encore encore!”

Beverly Paterson - Twist and Shake, Rock Beat International and Amplifier

“Originally released in November 1987, this classic pop rock lp is now available on CD with 7 bonus tracks from the original sessions! A landmark album that did especially well in parts of Europe! The opening track "Tear down the walls" became a European hit coinciding with the tearing down of the Berlinwall! "Striking are his vocals which are crystalclear, emotive, vibrating---A true voice of pop....He's got a way with guitars too, constantly a-ringing, throwing out riffs that would work everywhere. Always free of the insistence or obtrusiveness which characterizes the common major company stuff"”

Hartbeat Magazine (Germany)

“Less heavy on the guitars, this is more a pure power pop release. "Bringing forth the simple beauty of his pop as well as the fragility of his voice and the niceties in his guitar playing. It's Jeremy's album of love and positive vibrations-perhaps best summed up in "KATHERINE" an ode to his wife."”

Hartbeat Magazine (Germany)

“It's power pop that rocks!!! Repressed for the 5th time!!! This album continues to be a highlight in the JEREMY canon and continues to sell. Jeremy has released NEARLY 50 albums in his lifetime so far. "INVISIBLE" was originally recorded in the 1988 and having sold out 5 PRESSINGS!!!, is once again available to the public. This cd has proved be an enduring power pop/rock classic. The sound is guitar heavy and will appeal to fans of Cheap Trick, The Records, Beatles, and more. Contains the underground hit "I WANNA BE WITH YOU" from the "POP MATTERS" compilation. This track is listed in JOHN BORACKS book SHAKE SOME ACTION..which lists the most outstanding power pop tunes of all time! This has been one of his most popular CD's. ---"marrying his sunny voice to a melody borrowed from CHEAP TRICK and the RASPBERRIES, MR MORRIS makes nice noise indeed! Classic.”
