New Orleans couldn’t offer a more appropriate musical backdrop for Jeremy Joyce, whose genre-defying songs are born out of Jeremy’s macro-level interest in music history and his micro-level interest in what makes songs tick.
“You can break all the musical rules,” says Jeremy. “No one looks at you sideways if you are writing out of four or five different traditions,” he says. Indeed, one glance at the songs sung or written by Allen Toussaint and Dr. John provides ready evidence of the Crescent City’s long obsession with mixing musical traditions. Like many of his predecessors, Jeremy Joyce isn't easily pinned into one tradition or scene.
His new single "Come Back to New Orleans" represents a step into the tradition of New Orleans' Mardi Gras music culture. Produced by Mike Harvey ( Hot 8 Brass Band | The Wild Magnolias | Samantha Fish ) this Mardi Gras Anthem has its left foot in 50s RnB and its right foot in outer space.
