About Jeremy Johnson

Singing guitarist
Bristol
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Wedding & Party Bio: Alongside his emergence as a singer/songwriter in the UK and Europe, Jeremy Johnson is a recognised and sought after performer on the international wedding and party scene. Jeremy has a rare skill-set that is ideal for the wedding environment. Jeremy is able to provide everything from heart-felt acoustic ceremonial performances, through lounge-style wedding reception sets, to upbeat post-wedding breakfast performances and capped with tailored DJ capabilities into the late evening. Jeremy’s diverse and professional abilities cover all your musical needs, not only making the day’s logistics much simpler for his clients, but also providing a suite of wedding entertainment at a fraction of the price of a band or multi-musician booking. Singer-Songwriter Bio: With a voice described by Americana UK as ‘Superb… distinctive and interesting’ and guitar driven songwriting described by A&R Factory as ‘One of the most beautifully poised, tentative guitar progressions I’ve heard in a long time’, Jeremy Johnson is quickly becoming an internationally recognised singer-songwriter and performer. It is little wonder then that since becoming a full-time musician in 2018 and despite choosing to remain independent and self managed, Jeremy has been asked to provide live support for Scott Matthews, Ben Ottewell (Gomez), The Feeling and Paddy James. Strong support from BBC Introducing, including a performer slot at Hay Festival and airplay on Tom Robinson’s 6 music show has helped Jeremy settle into the UK music scene. But this perpetual nomad is never more happy that playing shows in new places, continuing to tour extensively through Holland, Germany, France, Spain and Portugal in his tour-bus/mini-home, ‘Greenie’. The songs Jeremy performs tell of hard won life experience, existential philosophy and adventures of the heart, born from travels to all corners of our planet. The seeds of his songwriting stretch back to 2009, given time to grow and mature, his fully formed compositions came to light in 2016 when Jeremy began increasingly exploring music as a full-time adventure. With two albums and a live EP under his belt, it would seem Jeremy is here to stay.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I have a natural rapport with my audiences and consider it an integral part of the job. Not all musicians interact, but without that connection, you miss a huge part of the wonder of live music.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

O2 Academy Bristol, Hay Festival, Goldcoast Oceanfest, Bardfest, Folklore Hoxton, The Smokehouse, Gaunts House, Forest Farm, Sandy Cove Hotel, Concerto Amsterdam, Piste Bash Festival, Chateau Impney, Porthilly Farm, Grittleton House, Notley Abbey, Launcells Barton and many more

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Ben Howard, Stevie Wonder, Tallest Man on Earth

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

O2 Academy Birmingham and Bardfest in front of 5000 people while support The Feeling

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. Before, during and after the set I can run a playlist through my PA at no additional cost. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes or party finishes, I provide this for an additional £100 per hour.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive at least 1 hour before my start time to set up, but this varies depending on the complexity of the set-up and the clients objectives. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm happy to chat through the options and make sure I find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! All my equipment is provided and set-up by me

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn I am happy to do this for you.

Jeremy was great. I can only recommend Jeremy. He created a good atmosphere. He knows a lot of songs, plays, and sings perfectly. He responded to the guests' requests. We had a great evening. I would not hesitate to go through him again.

It was such a pleasure to have Jeremy as part of our wedding. He did two sets for us and picked up on the vibe of our intimate wedding perfectly. All guests commented on the quality of his professional performance and we wouldn't hesitate to use him again or recommend him. Thank Jeremy for making our day so memorable.

From initial contact right through to his performance, Jeremy was absolutely fantastic. We only had a small venue with an even smaller guest list for our micro-wedding, and Jeremy was still able to fine-tune his performance to suit. His set list was perfect for the venue, and he included the tweaks and covers we requested in our initial conversations with him. Jeremy is a brilliant guitarist, and his ability with looping sections of his performance really adds to the quality and engages the audience even more. Add to all of the above the fact that he’s a really likeable bloke and easy to chat to and he’s likely perfect for almost any event! Would book him again in a heartbeat.

“Jeremy sang my wife and I to the alter. He brought such an intimate and amazing vibe. Afterwards he sang at our reception and made us smile even more. My wife and I can truly say he really made us feel even more special on the day”

“Jeremy played at our summer wedding in Cornwall and brought a wonderfully personal feel to the day. He played three songs chosen by my husband during the church ceremony and then played a set at the wedding reception. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without him.”
