“Jeremy Ivey has long been one of Nashville's most beloved behind-the-scenes musical magicians... Ivey's lyrical approach is both narratively vibrant and heavily poetic.”
Il musicista di Nashville Jeremy Ivey è felice di annunciare il suo album d'esordio The Dream And The Dreamer, che sarà pubblicato il 13 settembre su ANTI-Records. “L'unico scopo del video era quello di riprendere degli scenari ridicoli e farli sembrare normali”, racconta Jeremy sul video del nuovo singolo “Diamonds Back To Coal”. “La quantità di notizie a cui abbiamo accesso ogni giorno è assurda, direi addirittura surreale. E il video vuole esserne uno specchio”. Guardalo qui.
Registrato in un “minuscolo studio in casa” a Nashville e prodotto dalla moglie di Jeremy Margo Price, l'album è una raccolta di nove tracce semplici e profondamente introspettive. Jeremy, sempre in pieno fermento creativo e ispirato da Beatles, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen e Bob Dylan, vorrebbe pubblicare un album all'anno.
Beneath the album's generally up-tempo exterior, though, lies a deep preoccupation with the news cycle and problematic nature of Manifest Destiny. “I wrote 'Diamonds Back To Coal' during a very frustrating week in America,” Ivey said. “It was the week that the Vegas shootings and the alt-right march happened. The slogan 'Make America Great Again' is an influence on the chorus. [Because> if anything, we're making the environment worse. When we came and infiltrated the Native Americans' way of living, we started reversing the beauty that this land had. It has to do with modern man being a trespasser.”
Regression is admittedly a difficult notion for Ivey, who moved away from his conservative Georgia home after high school and bounced around, primarily doing prep work in kitchens. The harmonica-accented track “Story of a Fish”chronicles Ivey's personal diaspora, specifically relating to his upbringing. “I'm adopted, and I think that I always related with the story of salmon and how they're born,” he reveals. “The idea of being born far from your home, you know? You were born here, but you gotta get elsewhere. That's the way I always felt. I always felt that I was born in the wrong place to the wrong people at the wrong time.”
Meanwhile, Ivey is invested in his own version of the American Dream—specifically, offering up a melting pot of genres, ideas, and stories. “The best thing I could say is that I'm trying to fill the holes that I can see in the scene,” he says. “Whether it be Americana or country or rock or whatever. There's a certain type of song that isn't being written."
