In a small town outside of Memphis, Tennessee, singer-songwriter Jeremiah Clark grew up on gospel, country and classic rock. His sound is organic, refreshing & vocally-driven, much like artists Jason Mraz, Kelly Clarkson and Richard Marx. Since 2010, he’s toured the nation, playing for audiences in upwards of 10,000 people, and you can now hear his latest single, “Ten Feet Tall on Tequila,” spinning on The Highway, SiriusXM Radio’s up-and-coming country station. His highly-anticipated return to San Diego in December will feature a special collection of both original and holiday music for an absolutely unforgettable evening.

JEREMIAH CLARK was born & raised in a small town outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Bluegrass, rock-n-roll, gospel & soul brought about a sound in him that’s organic, refreshing & vocally-driven.
Growing up in a Southern Baptist family deeply-rooted in the soil of Memphis, Tennessee, it’s no surprise that Jeremiah Clark’s passion for music has been handed down through several generations. “Music surrounded me from my very first memories. The joy, the drive, the love of music and making it was always celebrated in our home.” If you had asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, “singer” was always the answer.
Early in his adolescence, this young pioneer found himself standing before crowds of hundreds of people singing in local, regional and state choirs winning competitions and praise from many classically-trained professionals. In between long school days and extracurricular activities, when most teenagers were going to parties and dances, Jeremiah was cutting his first demo at the age of 14 followed by three self-produced albums before leaving for college.
In the years to follow, Clark found himself in musical cities like Atlanta and Nashville before journeying to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he settled and made quite a name for himself with a new disc in 2008. The “Leaving a Broken Heart” EP revealed a more mature perspective of acceptance, growth and understanding from the self-taught pianist and guitarist. Just months after re-entering the industry, Jeremiah joined DC-based Tom Goss on a national tour.
From Seattle to San Diego, Miami to Portland, Maine, audiences embraced the new voice in their ears, and it would be heard for the next five years all across the country, only now, as a headliner. Playing over 500 shows in 75+ cities, Jeremiah Clark is what you would call a road warrior. He’s taken planes, trains, automobiles and even a kayak once, playing everything from amphitheaters at music festivals to intimate, house concerts…and it doesn’t end there.
A relocation to Portland, Oregon in late 2012 has allowed the singer-songwriter to fulfill his lifelong dream of opening an independent label, Mariposa Records Group, and publishing company, Fifth & Madison Publishing, ASCAP. The company released its first record on March 3, 2015, as Jeremiah Clark’s official, self-titled debut. The first single, a country song called “Ten Feet Tall on Tequila,” has been picked up by SiriusXM Radio and Pandora, and the music video will be soon to follow.
It’s clear that he’s here to stay, folks. Jeremiah Clark is a name you’ll want to remember with a voice you’ll never forget.
