Jeremiah Hosea

Jeremiah Hosea’s credentials are extensive and diverse… After making his professional debut recording and performing with life-long friend and musical mentor Olu, Jeremiah went on to found Earthdriver. Since the inception of the project, Jeremiah has also toured with Grammy-nominated blues/jazz legend James “Blood” Ulmer (who “discovered” both Jeremiah and drummer Swiss Chris at Earthdriver’s third gig), first as part of his “Raw Blues Experience” and then as part of “Memphis Blood”, a project co-starring black rock pioneer Vernon Reid.

Jeremiah has also toured with: Ethiopian vocal sensation Ejigayayu Shawbabaw (Gigi) as part of her electric and acoustic ensembles; tabla beat master Karsh Kale; Disco Queen Gloria Gaynor; The Gee-Chee Goddess of Warrior Hardcore Soul Tamar-kali; violin virtuoso Lili Haydn, in support of her Arista release, “Light Blue Sun” and Peter Prince (along with Swiss Chris) as the fifth edition of Moon Boot Lover. He is a co-producer of Sharrif Simmons’ “The Echo-Effect”, which provided three tracks to the Emmy nominated soundtrack for the documentary “Mr. Dial has Something to Say.

Jeremiah’s adroit technique and mutant approach to sound, his commitment to the ethos of love and radical politics, his vocal talent and kung-fu artistry all coalesce to make him a singular force to be reckoned with.
