ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jeremy Serwer recently referred to by the Willamette Weekly’s Jeff Rosenberg as a “Serious Minded Songwriter” has a lot on his mind. “Roads” his most recent release is deeply steeped in the varieties that the Americana genre offer’s. “Roads” is also one of two CD’s to be released this summer, the other “Facedown” now being mixed in Portland. Both efforts are possible and are dedicated to the Mysterious passing of his mother last year.
Advanced listeners had this to say about “Roads”;
“The sweet and perfect harmonies of Sky draw my ear deeper and deeper into it. The instruments and their players spin and weave in an out of the verses like a long awaited summer breeze”. Larry Albert San Francisco, CA.
“Soil.. This one KILLS me. I was so excited to hear this song come out of you. It’s a classic movie crescendo song. A lasting song. I had a vision for a video with this one. Hear me out! A woman swimming in the ocean, slowly multiplies into smaller pieces, either reflections of her whole self or mirrored parts, eventually turning into sand, then slowly being reclaimed by the ocean bit by bit until she is whole again.” Hattie Peterson Duluth, MN.
“Roads” was produced by multi talented Michael Connolly of Empty Sea Studios in Seattle. He also lends his abilities with Strings, Mandolin, Voice and keys. “Roads” includes a stellar steel guitar performance by Orville Johnson on the track “Dirty Entity”. Holly Figueroa provides backing vocals on the title track “Roads”. Trina Willard of the indie smash film “Hump Day” contributed syrupy sweet vocal performances on the tracks “Dirty Entity”, “Bare Witness” and “Desk Criminal”. Suggested songs for airplay are “Dirty Entity”, “Sky”, “Bare Witness” and “Soil”. The FCC will not appreciate “Big Shitty”
“Roads” is a record that travels through many emotions, if you’re a fan of timeless writing, performance and production chances are you will have much in common with this effort.

AWESOME singer-songwriter, my new favorite
Really really enjoy every single song here! Cannot wait for the other one coming out. Pierce to the truth of life, you won't understand until you experience it.

Peter @ CD Baby

CD Baby Editor's Pick
There's something immediately gripping about Jeremy Serwer’s voice; it's got just the right amount of gravel to complement his soulful timbre, or the female vocals who accompany him on several tracks. Sometimes jaunty, sometimes with a funky backbeat and electric piano, and sometimes with not much more than an acoustic guitar, Serwer's diver palette of genres serves him well, and suitably frames his knack for a turn of phrase matched by chord & melodic changes that you just want to hear over and over again. Album highlights include the haunting soul of “Dirty Entity” and the lovely “Bare Witness” which recalls Elliott Smith's gorgeous melancholy. It's really compelling, heartfelt music. Check it out today!

Roads and Facedown...you can't go wrong with these records...
I agree with Leslie...if you don't understand the songs on these records, you will one day, when someone you love is gone, or when someone who loves you dies. Both records Jeremy released this year are masterfully written, produced, and could not be more heartfelt. If you are in Seattle, don't miss any opportunity you have to see Jeremy live, especially solo...it is an experience you won't forget.
