Jeremiah Lockwood - Born and raised in New York City in a family of musicians, Jeremiah Lockwood began his musical career playing on the streets of Manhattan. Soon he began performing with Piedmont blues master Carolina Slim, with whom he still plays regularly. Jeremiah has also worked for years as the front man of the blues Jewish music fusion band "The Sway Machinery," who are described as "consistently exciting and emotionally rewarding" by The Village Voice. In recent years, Jeremiah has worked increasingly as a soloist, opening for artists including Robert Cray, Levon Helm, and the Holmes Brothers. In the past year, he has also begun performing with J-Dub Recording artists Balkan Beat Box. "American Primitive," Jeremiah's first solo album, was released by Vee-Ron Records/Red Eye Distribution in April 2006.
