And so, ladies and gentlemen...taraaa...drum roll...I give you BDS3, as it is known in these parts. A little later than planned but I have been somewhat busy this year in "London's Glittering West End."
As always, such a shame that Big Dave Pierce is no longer with us and therefore unable to hear how our songs sounded when finished. His words always came first. All I had to do was to set them, after some judicious editing. My pal Jo Meacham suddenly remarked the other day, "you know, there's an immortality thing going on here. His words will live on." Indeed. And while I'm on that subject, Jo's playing goes from strength to strength, as I'm sure you'll agree. He and I have been working together, on and off, for almost 20 years. It shows, I think.
I hope you enjoy No 3 as much as we have blah blah blah. Amazingly, the Drawer is still over half full. We are now deep into No 4 and, if I say so myself, it will be a bit of a corker. To remind you, there are 7 albums planned. The idea is that you should not find that they peter out towards the end and I am therefore holding back some scrumptious songs. And now, back to work - thanks for listening. Until next time...
Love,
Jeremy

March 2, 2016...

I know it's been a while but these things take time. At last discs have been pressed, schedules arranged, oracles consulted and a propitious date agreed for the release of the keenly awaited (by me) 'The Bottom Drawer Session,s No. 2' - out on March 22nd!
It's the mixture as before, basically. Jo Meacham and I noodling away on two guitars and eventually producing something we're really proud of.
The project has been overshadowed by the death of my old pal David "Big Dave" Pierce. Lyrics and poetry just poured out of him and the songs followed. There would have been no Bottom Drawer Sessions without him. He was able to hear some rough mixes of the album before he left us and was absolutely thrilled and proud. His words live on.
And so the plan is to release the new album on my birthday. A birthday present from me to me, you might say, but actually to any and all of you as well. I hope you have as good a time listening to it as I did making it.
And now on to No.3...

January 18th 2016...

My old pal David "Big Dave" Pierce left us this week. The same day as Bowie. As Chad wrote to me, " Two Davids on the same day". It was not unexpected. A series of strokes had left him sadly depleted, stuck in a Paris hospital, devotedly cared for by the wonderful Cristina. When I spoke to him last week, he hardly had the energy to speak. He was desperate to leave and finally did. A blessed release.
We met in the early 80's at a party given by his friend, the jazz singer Annie Ross. An enormous Canadian chap in a cowboy hat. "And what do you do?", I enquired. "I'm a lyricist". Not the usual answer. And so he was, working with the wonderfully talented Rick Jones and his band Meal Ticket. I went round to his place the next day, utterly intrigued. And when he produced an enormous folder stuffed with unused song lyrics and poems, I knew I'd struck gold. I took a few home with me and, using the excuse to give our dog Rags a walk, rushed to the park. I started humming to some words titled Zanzibar Sunset and knew within moments that something wonderful was happening. From then on, as life blew us both in various directions, we wrote in London, Los Angeles, and then finally and most happily, in Paris.
His place in Paris in the then unfashionable 14th district, was exactly where you might imagine a bohemian writer might live. An old factory on two floors stuffed with a chaotic collection of old bullfighting posters, ghastly paintings on velvet, pin up calendars from the 50's, all of it thoroughly unclean with a resident colony of moths. The perfect place to work in fact for two guys whose marriages had fallen apart. At that period I was doing a fair bit of filming in Europe and always got the company to route me back to London via Paris, open return. This was because there would inevitably come a time, usually between a week and ten days, when we would mutually decide that enough was enough and we couldn't stand each other's habits anymore. We were true opposites. The ultimate Odd Couple.
His work lives on, as all art does. Not only in his splendid crime fiction novels, as funny and ironic as he was, but now in our songs. The words always came first, driving the music in totally unexpected directions. Some of the happiest times in my life were spent in his company. Goodbye, old friend.

One year ago today I debuted my first solo album - 'The Bottom Drawer Sessions, No. 1' - at a charity preview concert in Tacoma, Washington. Since then, I've received a number of questions about the significance of the memorabilia pictured in the album artwork. In answer to your requests, we've created this short video guide to my bottom drawer. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse behind the scenes.

Thanks as always to Alma at LilMarauder Productions for the video.

If you are one of those lovely people who sent Birthday cards and were waiting to see if they had arrived, the answer is yes, finally, a couple of days ago. And what an amazing & humbling collection of good wishes they turned out to be. Extraordinary, really, that people should bother. Huge thanks to you all, of course. Apparently, a famous baseball player - one Satchel Paige - used to say, " how old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?" Hmmm. Well, let's switch the numbers round and say 47. That'll do for a start.
Thus, suffused with youthful vigour, I am hard at work on BDS2, the old bottom drawer sessions, that is. I can report that at the time of writing about 3/4 of the tracks are in fine shape, with the remaining quarter in need of some judicious tinkering. As it happens, we are tinkering tomorrow. Can't wait. Thrilling. So much so that I'm already thinking about BDS3. Believe me, the drawer is still overflowing, and I'm still holding back some of my favourites.
Here, Spring has sprung and England is in flower. I suggest you get over here while the dollar is strong and join in the fun. I'll be going the other way in May for the West Coast Chad & Jeremy dates, of course. Looking forward to working with My Old Pal again. And, in particular, that moment when we first sing together and - wow - there is that amazing blend, still there. Awesome, as you say over there.
See you there, perhaps...
Love & thanks,
Jeremy.
