Harmon has been a show-stopping performer since his early days of playing shows in Lynchburg, VA. His earlier jazz-influenced trio music set the stage for what would be an impressive feat – his appearance on American Idol’s 17th season. Harmon’s smooth and passionate vocals paired with his mature writing sensibility earned him a spot amongst the top six performers of the season. He also caught the attention of some big names like Elton John, who called him after his cover of John’s “We All Fall in Love Sometimes,” and tweeted that the performance “took his breath away.” He also performed with Broadway favorite Cynthia Erivo, pop star Katy Perry, and performed his original song “Almost Heaven.”
His debut LP album, Namesake, is a personal and curated journal of his journey over the last few years of his life. It explores themes like the uncomfortable reality of coming out to family, experiencing unrequited love, and existential questions about acceptance and friendship. With dreamy arrangements and a nostalgic folk sound, Harmon delivers poignant and emotive sets of vocal performances that tell a story of self acceptance and strength.
Harmon recorded Namesake directly after Idol ended for him, at Big Ego studios in Long Beach California with producer Chris Schlarb (Psychic Temple). Schlarb also produced his first eponymous EP.
Jeremiah currently resides in Baltimore, MD and performs with his band in the area, as well as across the country. His live shows are a testament to his years as a performer and songwriter, and this is only the beginning. He is certainly an artist and performer you don’t want to miss.
