Jeremiah Downes and Friends: Live @ Farmers Alley Theatre

Well, it’s official! Thrilled to announce that the incredible Evan Gallagher-Frace and Madge Dietrich (Kinky Boots), will be joining me and some of my fierce Western students (Logan Dolence, Joriah Fleming, Matthew Lanyi, Alyssa Meeuwsen and Cara Palombo) this coming January 18-19th at Farmers Alley Theatre for a new evening of my original songwriting. The evening will be recorded live with a digital release available in February.

New Songs: Meet the Singers

Meet the singers. My beloved pals and brilliant artists, Alison Weisberg and Evan Gallagher-Frace. And, my old partner in crime, Mark Nucero on percussion! Looking forward to making music with them both and sharing it with you all soon. Be sure to join us in Philly on 4/28 at the Biello Martin Studio in Old City.

Alison Weisberg loves Jeremiah and Philadelphia and is very excited to share his music with all of you! A graduate from Temple, her newest adventure comes this fall, when she welcomes her new baby into the world.

Evan Gallagher-Frace is a recent graduate from the University of the Arts here in Philadelphia where he received his BFA in Musical Theatre. Since moving to NYC he has settled down in Brooklyn and has taken the Manhattan nightlife circuit by storm after winning the 2nd season of Rising Star at Rise Bar in Hell’s Kitchen.

SETC & A New Book In The Works

I'll be heading off to Greensboro, North Carolina next week to the Southeastern Theatre Conference's annual convention. I'll be presenting two of my workshops, More Than Words: Contemporary Commercial Singing for the Musical Theatre and Use What You Got: Authentic Confidence in Performance which tackles the unique demands and anxieties of performance for the singing actor. I'll also sit on a panel with colleagues from Emory & Henry and Florida Southern College to discuss with educators how to successfully prepare high school students for college auditions.

I'm extremely excited to announce that I'm developing and authoring a new book that takes an in depth look at the next generation writing for the musical theater. More details will be released soon but I can say that I've got an incredible and dynamic roster of composers and lyricists on board who will offer up an intimate glimpse into their process, inspirations and assumptions about the future of the art form. Keep an eye out for official announcements in the coming months.
