Jeremy describes "Something Other Than You Are"
"Let's go back to a little house on the Eastside of town in Nashville, TN. It was a beautiful fall day, and I had just gotten back from a month-long tour in Texas and was desperately needing to do laundry. The house that my ex-girlfriend, my girlfriend at the time, and I lived in had a wonderful sunroom where the washer and dryer were. It was perfect, especially on a day like this was. When moving my clothes back and forth, I started humming a melody. When you're distracted by tedious tasks, the coolest things can creep into your brain, and that's what was happening. I got everything where it needed to be and picked up a baby martin lying around for songwriting moments such as this. I sat down on top of the washing machine, put my feet up on the edge of the sunroom window, and started picking. I wasn't alone very long when my girlfriend's cat and my best friend at the time, Thunder, joined me. I wrote this song to him and all the things I was feeling because of him and his mother. I had been through a lot, and they were there with me and helped see me through the roughest patch. Life is crazy, and my lyrics and songs can lean towards the more realistic darker side. I just wanted to shine a little light this time. I was happy then, and I am happy now. We are in charge of that happiness. We all long to be something other than we are, maybe even someone sometimes, but we are who we are for a specific reason and purpose, so be that person because that person is perfectly you."
We all have those crucial crossroad points in our life, a moment in which you have to look at what you've got and realistically decide what's next and what's for the best. the album "Things To Come" is about the journey that got Jeremy there, a rollercoaster ride of drugs and alcohol, a search for the correct answers for himself. Was it that his life was over, or was it that something greater was about to begin.
