Introduction
Imagine a young London born singer songwriter working night-shifts for seven years to get the money together to hire legendary brass players, soulful string orchestras, and Questlove, one of music’s most influential figures to drum on five of the tracks, and record them in a little studio in Dollis Hill. Born to an Anglo-Indian father and a Tipperary born Irish-Catholic mother, Jonathan inherited his name from his mother’s brother, a priest, and a boy in love with the idea of the American dream, who died in a car crash in Jefferson City, USA at the age of 23.

In his early twenties Jonathan crossed the Atlantic, just like his late uncle, to pursue American music. He traveled from New York to Los Angeles by bus, writing songs between petrol stations and burger stops. Realising that America didn't hold the answers, the 22 year-old left his uncle's ghost behind him, returned home, and began making his debut album. Seven years later, and featuring collaborations with the likes of The Roots’ bandleader Questlove, James Brown’s legendary band The JBs and Bernard Butler, the album is finished. After a life of loving music that expresses its emotions purely and truthfully, and after long years of working and dreaming, Jonathan Jeremiah is ready to become his own man.

As well as finishing his own album, Jonathan has been in the studio recording a track for fantastic electronic band Aeroplane’s album which will be released in 2010.
