Iron & Coal, Jeremy’s deeply personal concept album, turned large-scale multimedia concert event, celebrated its long-awaited New York premiere at the prestigious Prototype Festival in January of 2020. Recorded in Vienna in 2011, Iron & Coal explores the emotional landscape of a father who survived the Holocaust and the son who grew up under the long shadows of Auschwitz. The World Premiere (produced by BMP, Beth Morrison Projects and The Strathmore) at the Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland, was a true multimedia concert event, featuring 230 musicians, including 3 choirs, youth and adult orchestras, and Jeremy in conversation with his older (and younger) father. Additional concert events include the recently developed The Father Who Stayed and Drift. Musicals include Spun, Greta, and Calling All Kates.

Jeremy has released multiple albums including Blue Skies and All, Drift, Iron & Coal, Brooklyn to Beacon, and 37 Notebooks. “House of Love,” recorded by Shoshana Bean for 37 Notebooks (featuring the Broadway Dreams Chorus), and more recently, recorded as a dance single by Hamilton star Blaine Krauss, is consistently used in many diverse charitable campaigns including Equity Fights Aids, Defying Inequality, and the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus annual holiday concert at Town Hall, appropriately billed, “The Holiday House of Love”. Additionally, Jeremy wrote and performed two songs for the Clear Blue Tuesday film soundtrack (co-starring Jeremy), and penned the featured single “Babazille Mahlangu” for the Broadway in South Africa campaign. Jeremy scored a Billboard Top 25 hit with his song “Queen” recorded by Frankie Grande. Additionally, Frankie recorded and released the follow-up single (penned by Jeremy), “I Got Me”. Previously, Jeremy served as music director and featured performer and mentor for the Broadway Dreams Foundation. Favorite performances include Life Ball (Vienna), Hollywood in Vienna (honoring the late great, James Horner), opening ceremonies for the Macabee games at both Madison Square Garden and in Vienna, Austria, and performing alongside his PATH Fund Broadway rock pals for the annual charity event, Rockers on Broadway

Jeremy lives in Beacon, New York with beautiful wife Sarah-Jane, kids Gus and Frances, and occasionally, big sis Alexandra when she comes up from the City for a visit! Oh, and super sweet dog, Lily Bunny (Gus named her. Don’t ask.).
