Jackson, Kentucky original recipe singer-songwriter and genre-bending guitar blazer, Jeremy Short, has quickly risen to the top shelf of must-hear players on the scene.
First given a Gibson SG by his grandfather - a well known Methodist preacher, Short recalls with a laugh, "he handed it to me and said - let’s not make this a full time thing".
Short first made a name for himself as the solo-ripping sideman of the red-hot Americana act, “Sasha Colette & The Magnolias”, and the front man and lead guitarist of the horn-fueled R&B band “Downtown King”. Now he's found his home and what he calls “his own thing” in Short & Company.
Leaving his soul on the floor, and yours in shreds, “Ain’t That Workin”, “Bartender” and “Set in Her Ways” show why Short is a 2 Time Semi-finalist, and 2019 competitor at the International Blues Challenge, a competition featuring the best blues acts from around the globe.
But blues aren’t his only groove.
One spin of Lost in A Spin, released March 2018, and Short will have you eating from the palm of his hand.
With dance club ready R&B hits like “Shake It Off”, “You & Me”, and lead single “If The Spirit Moves You”, Short encourages you to forget the stresses of the 9-5 chaos, and get lost in his music. “Sometimes, you just gotta dance to get it out. So if you feel like dancing, dance. If you feel like singing along, do it. Do what feels right.”
