“Lockwood, a young Brooklynite who plays good guitar and banjo and sings like he’s possessed by the schizoid spirit of Bukka White, forges his own idiosyncratic strain of blues-cum-country on his impressive debut.” —DownBeat
The Sway Machinery, Jeremiah’s band, offers a different view of his musical personality. This exciting project, a collaboration with musicians from Antibalas and Tom Waits’ old band, is an exploration of the Ashkenazic Jewish liturgical music tradition Jeremiah grew-up exposed to in his family. The band has been capturing the attention of more and more New Yorkers in the last year and is poised to break out on the national and international level.
“Lockwood’s arrangements of Jewish cantorial songs whip up a frenzy wherein all the world’s music can do that which music does best: celebrate. Such joyful synthesis is what music is all about, not to mention what New York is all about.”
—Buzz Poole, The Village Voice
Jeremiah Lockwood lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife Shasta and their two sons Moses Lion and Jacob Ulysses.
