Bio

Jeremy Hunter built a reputation for being one of Brisbane’s most versatile songwriters. Whether it is the orchestral uplifting songs of Inland Sea, the epic rock ballads of The Bacchanales and Feuds, or the raw melancholy of his two solo EPs, Jeremy has always gone where his muse takes him. In early 2019 he moved south to Adelaide for a fresh start in life and music.

His latest single Garden of Eden is a swirling melancholy epic of guitars, keyboards and harmonies. The lyrics point at some great loss in the past or future than cannot be faced, petitioning the listener to "swim in the wake of the world that you once loved". Hunter says the song was inspired by the current fragile state of the world's ecology and politics, and the paralysis, or outright denial, that many people feel in response to it.

Jeremy’s songwriting has given him the opportunity to share the stage with some of the best acts around - Holy Holy, Passenger, The John Steel Singers, Polish Club, Harts - and to showcase at such festivals as Laneway, The Great Escape Brighton, and Liverpool Sound City.

Those flashes of minor notes give this a gorgeous melancholy... then those layered vocals! Sweep me away whydon'tcha.

Such movement and emotion to this song, and I'm a huge fan of the vocal arrangements (esp in the 2nd verse).
