Jeremy was a long time ago a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral, then won a choral scholarship to New College Oxford where he later studied ethnomusicology. He did his Dphil research in Cameroon and also studied singing in Israel with Esti Knaan Offri and George Yusuf.
He currently sings with vocal big band The Shout and with his own live-looping vocal group, Askew and Avis. He recently performed in their first mini-opera, Tongue Tied, at Royal Opera House Covent Garden and at Womad and the Montreal Jazz festival.
He also makes regular guest appearances with the Mellstock Band, and has recorded and performed with the German Ensemble Oni Wytars. Last year he also recorded two 15th Century Italian songs for viol consort Fretwork’s new album. Jeremy's website
