Many Moons

Releasing 8/28 on Blackbird Record Label

Jeremy Squires surprised even himself with the sonic textures of his newest album, Many Moons.

 

One of North Carolina’s most prolific folk singer-songwriters, Squires opted to record the songs he’s written on his analog keyboard over the last few years for Many Moons, which he self-produced. The experimentation leads to some unexpected sounds, yet the heart of Squires’ songwriting remains true.

 

Echoing its title, Many Moons is built around imagery of darkness and dreams. These moments may be pulled from his own life, yet he writes in such a way that listeners can put themselves into the lyrics.

Poem

“Poem is moody and takes what’s considered “Americana” by its ear and dares us to explore what works within the confines of genre. Much like how Lucero dove on Among the Ghosts and Jason Isbell did with The Nashville Sound.”
 
- Farce the Music

 

“For anyone unfamiliar with Jeremy Squires, Poem is a good introduction to his heartfelt and emotionally wrought folk music. The music acts as a vehicle that delivers Squires’s explorations of life, love and death with maximum unpretentious emotional heft.”

When Will You Go...

Since the release of his first album, A Place To Hide, in January 2012, Jeremy Squires has become synonomous with thought-provoking lyrics and melancholic music. His candid approach to songwriting welcomes his listeners to step inside his dark and stunning world providing comfort and solace to other weary souls. Jeremy’s rare ability to emotionally open up and sing about his struggles with his demons and fears has allowed him to open up creatively giving him more confidence to experiment more on his new album, When Will You Go....

Originally written and recorded in early 2013, Jeremy produced When Will You Go... in his North Carolina home. Released in November 2013, he intended to use the album to explore themes of death and fear of losing loved ones, but it eventually became much more taking on a whole new and personal meaning. Playing banjo, guitar, piano, and resonator guitar, Jeremy enlisted indie songstress Anna-Lynne Williams (Lotte Kestner, Trespassers William) to sing background vocals as well as multi-instrumentalist Shane Leonard (Kalispell, Field Report) to play fiddle, bass, organ, and percussion. The result, a brilliantly sparse album with darker, more melodic songs like “I Am Still Here”, “Echoes”, and “Like a Thief in the Night”. Mid-tempo tracks like “Oblivious” and “The Nest”, although complicated and dismal they provide a lasting impression. Continuing the themes of When Will You Go... is “J.L.P” which is about the loss of both Jeremy’s father and grandfather.

When Will You Go... says a lot about Jeremy Squires as a person and an artist. He may not write the happiest of songs, but what he does write is absolutely gorgeous and unearthly. And, just to be clear, even though Jeremy’s songs are a little on the gloomy side, that doesn’t exactly make him a dismal person. It just shows that he has creatively fought his way through sickness and struggles making him a better human, musician, and artist who continues to use his personal battle to grow and produce honest and spectacular albums. He demonstrates that beauty and creativity can and does rise from the ashes of fear and death.


"This is one of the finest albums released this year and one worth every minute of your time and attention."
- Wake the Deaf


"Jeremy Squires lays some dark and honest shit out there on this album. That takes courage and brutal openness. It also isn’t an easy feat. I have come to love this album. I think it should be up there with some of the best albums released this year."
