Oh, Jeremiah

Oh, Jeremiah, is the musical cocktail of the musing and tall tales of singer/songwriter Jeremiah Stricklin. Each of his songs is filled with the distinct characteristics of the Deep Southern culture that he's called home for so long. The familiar people and places that he has always known are now the invisible forces that populate his songs simultaneously uplifting and haunting his person musically. His pace, his love of face-to-face conversation, and his enjoyment of wasting an afternoon sitting on a front porch have all given him and his music a flavor worth savoring. In short, he can be considered the 21st Century Tom Sawyer, the friend you would be willing to paint for or take a leap of faith with if you had a leap of faith with if you had to run away from the real world.

Taking his cues from great songwriters like John Ritter, Ryan Adams, Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) and countless others, Stricklin is embarking on an entirely new adventure with a full band in tow. Demonstrating vulnerability and intimacy, Oh Jeremiah creates a genuine connection with audience, both lyrically and in live performances. Consistently touring and telling deep personal anecdotes and stories with unflinching honesty, Stricklin brings audiences together through a shared experience transporting individuals into his songs to become part of something bigger than themselves.

In 2013 Oh, Jeremiah released their first EP, Tall Tales and Tiny Fables. In that year alone Oh, Jeremiah toured from Austin, TX to New York City. In April of 2014 the second album Our Very Own Kingdom sprung onto the top 20 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. Since then, Oh, Jeremiah has opened for notable acts such as The Lobe Bellow, Jake Shimabukuro, and David Dondero.


Now, The band is preparing to release the video for "Beautiful Monster," the second single from Our Very Own Kingdom is available on iTunes HERE
