The singer and multi-instrumentalist with Vapors of Morphine, the Deltabilly Boys, and the Busted Jug Band cut his teeth in street bands in the French Quarter, playing old-time acoustic blues and folk music. A post-Katrina relocation to Cambridge, Mass., led to meeting Dana Colley and Jerome Deupree of Morphine and being invited to front a reformed version of the group after the tragic passing of beloved singer/bassist Mark Sandman. The trio, now with drummer Tom Aery, continues to champion Low Rock and moody, unusual/experimental music on their latest “Fear & Fantasy” release. Tonight Jeremy joins the Troubled Men to plumb the depths to a new low.
