It’ll be a full performance of the entire album, “Empty Through Empty Space” and with a stellar cast of players, well, you will want to get tickets ahead of time, for the Doug Fir show on March 8. Don’t get left out!!
Enjoy a conversation with Jeremy about the songwriting process, the huge difference between digital and analog styles of recording. One of them is really better if you are looking to lay down a vibe in the studio, and as always, the talk turns to “What’s next”” Both for Jeremy as musician and for The Jeremy Wilson Foundation.
