Jem_Colour2Cape Town-based Jeremy Loops is a modern day one man folk band. Born out of necessity whilst working on yachts around the world, Jeremy discovered that there’s no-one better to work with than yourself.

Jeremy creates his finely woven tapestry of sounds using his guitar, ukelele, harmonica and beatbox skills. As his name may suggest, he then runs this through loop pedals, echo and distortion units layering tunes like a one man band.

“I enjoy all genres of music, but my first love is folk. Frequently, brilliant collaborators join me on stage to take my sound to the next level,” explains Jeremy.

Interactivity and crowd participation are key to the creation of his multi-layered structure of beats and rhythms. Having built his career from an early stage with rapper Motheo Moleko, the two exude a perfectly ordered mish-mash of folk, hip-hop, bluegrass funk and blues.

Not simply content with growing his own musical career, Jeremy is also quite literally growing South Africa, heading up the agricultural revolution that is GreenPop – an initiative spearheading the conscious push to plant more trees and reduce carbon emissions, among other projects.

Back home in South Africa, Jeremy Loops recently opened for Xavier Rudd, a world renowned folk singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist from Australia.

Jeremy Loops will be touring the US and UK in May. He is one of 30 acts picked from around the world to showcase his talent at MUSEXPO in Los Angeles. The team will fly into New York and London for once off shows, followed by Brighton for The Great Escape festival.

Jeremy has been in the studio over the last few months creating new material for this tour, some of which will be debuted on his travels.

10 May: Pianos New York

15 May: Jazz Cafe, Camden
