Jeremy Silver has been finding ways to keep himself busy since arriving in Los Angeles in 2001. A Chicago native, he brought with him a solid voice and a knack for good songwriting. And it wasn’t long before he found himself settling into various musical circles around town. His sound is a reflection of that eagerness to get involved in anything musical…think Tom Petty meets Wilco meets Coldplay.
The most recent release from Jeremy is his first solo effort, a six-track EP that shows a softer side few knew he possessed. Looking to depart from the sleak power-pop sound that he developed while fronting LA based rock outfit The Drop, Jeremy focused on a stripped down sound that is every bit as advantageous as it is sparse. Silver handled all guitars, keyboards and vocals and self-produced the disc. He also sought out two of LA’s finest to round out the trio, Reade Pryor (Mighty 690, The Drop) on drums, and Carson Cohen (Naimee Coleman, Spookey Ruben) on bass. Once again Jeremy called on friend and musical cohort Gabriel Mann (Sara Bareilles, Arrested Development) to mix the project.
Several of his songs have appeared on television and in various films. Licensing Jeremy’s music is quick and easy as he controls his entire catalog under his recently formed Walk Five Steps Music, Inc. Most recently his song “I’m Not Worried” can be found as the end title to “Sydney White” (Morgan Creek) coming to theaters nationwide on September 21, 2007.
