THIS IS JEREMIAH SUNDOWN

“I WAS BORN IN THE MOUNTAINS  SURROUNDING OLINGER, VIRGINIA; NEAR BIG STONE GAP; IN THE HEART OF  ‘APPALACHIA’…SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SCENERY IN ALL THE WORLD. MY  FAMILY WAS ‘DIRT POOR’.  FROM THERE, MY FAMILY RELOCATED TO LYNCHBURG,  VIRGINIA. IT WAS THERE THAT I GREW FROM A CHILD TO A MAN, AND IT WAS  THERE THAT I DISCOVERED THAT MUSIC WAS MY CALLING...


NOT  LONG AFTER  GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL; I KNEW THAT TO GROW MUSICALLY, I  HAD TO GO WHERE MUSIC WAS MORE PREDOMINATE AND EVOLVING. I FOUND JUST  THAT ON THE BEAUTIFUL MONTEREY PENINSULA OF CALIFORNIA. IT WAS THERE I  LEARNED VARIOUS STYLES OF MUSIC, AND THE ART OF BEING A ‘TRUE ENTERTAINER.'  (THANK YOU JOE CHUNN...)


SOON  AFTER, ‘THE JEREMIAH SUNDOWN BAND’ WAS FORMED; PERFORMING AT MANY  VENUES IN THE MONTEREY / SALINAS, AND SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREAS.     

WE  PERFORMED AT MANY MILITARY INSTALLATIONS, AND A SERIES OF PRISON CONCERTS, OUR MUSIC WAS WIDELY ACCEPTED, AND ALL TOO SOON, OUR  WANDERLUST DICTATED WE TAKE OUR SONG ‘ON THE ROAD’.


IN  A VERY SHORT TIME, WE WERE PERFORMING ALL OVER THE AMERICAN WEST, MIDWEST, AND THE GREAT AMERICAN SOUTHLAND….DENVER, COLORADO / OMAHA,  NEBRASKA / HOUSTON, TEXAS / CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (THAT’S ANOTHER STORY…) /  JOPLIN, MISSOURI, RENO, NEVADA, AND A HUNDRED OTHER TOWNS AND CITIES.  LET’S SEE… ALL OVER IOWA / ALL OVER SOUTH DAKOTA / DALLAS, TEXAS /  OKLAHOMA / KANSAS / WYOMING / MONTANA ….’WHEW…’ ON AND ON AND ON AND ON.


NEEDING  TO FIND ‘ROOTS’, I MOVED TO NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, AND BOUGHT A ‘HEAVEN  ON EARTH’ HOME THERE - ON THE RIVER, SURROUNDED BY HILLS. THIS IS WHERE I  HAVE REMAINED. NOT TOO LONG AGO, MY WONDERFUL WIFE JOINED ME THERE. NOW  WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH OUR ‘ANGEL BABY’ DAWN…THE LIGHT OF OUR LIVES.


THESE  DAYS, I HAVE FOUND TREMENDOUS PLEASURE IN PERFORMING WITH JUST MYSELF,  GUITAR AND HARMONICA. IT ALLOWS ME ‘MORE FREEDOM’ IN MY PERFORMANCE AND  INTERACTION WITH MY AUDIENCE. I ALSO PERFORM WITH 'LOCAL BANDS' IN THE  VARIOUS CITIES I APPEAR IN. THERE HAS BEEN MANY ‘MOUNTAINS AND VALLEYS’  IN MY LIFE AND MUSICAL CAREER. BUT BY FAR, I HAVE CLIMBED MOUNTAINS…


MUCH LIKE THE MOUNTAINS SURROUNDING BIG STONE GAP, VIRGINIA……….”
