Jeremy Facknitz has been entertaining audiences with his lovingly crafted music and high-energy performances for over 20 years.
Since the 2002 break-up of his Detroit-based band "The Ottomans" (2001 Detroit Music Award Winner, Best New Alternative Band), Jeremy has performed primarily as a solo act, sharing through an often quirky fusion of folk-rock and jazz his intimate stories of life, love, and self-discovery.
But from 2003 to 2017 those stories - for the most part - fell on deaf ears, as Jeremy toiled in the bars and brewpubs of southern Colorado. Things came to a head on July 17th, 2017 when Jeremy was diagnosed with viral meningitis. "I came face to face with my mortality, and I realized it was time for a change. I quit the bars and spent the next year making the leap to house concerts, touring, and performing solely for listening audiences."
The leap has paid off. Jeremy was named a top 24 finalist from over 700 entries in the 2020 Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, which was held virtually. He continues to book shows in the United States, Canada and the U.K., performing primarily at house concerts and listening rooms in promotion of his 5th album of original material, "From Those Sweet Ashes", recorded at Northpark Studios in Colorado and produced by Jarrod Headley. His past albums "Gimmick", "What a Day", "Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack", and "All's Well" can be found on Spotify.
