Music needs people that want to play it for the right reasons. It’s about telling a story. I’m taking it one step at a time.
Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith and see where you land. That’s what I’m doing these days. I’ve decided to set out and follow this burning desire I’ve had for a very long time. I’m runnin’ down this dream, and I can’t wait to see where it leads. I hope to see you all out at one of the shows I have coming up. Take care!

While artists keep seeking to join the machine, Jeremy McComb enjoys his success as a Fiercely Independent Artist & Entertainer.
McComb has had stints with the Music machine of music city but has never been able to settle into any “Clubs”. He says it comes down to “Having a problem with authority”.
“I don’t like people telling me what to do” he adds.
The past 24 months have marked major career milestones for McComb (after over 10 yrs on the road), Over one million streams independently, 170 + Shows across the country, 220 Days on the Road, 70,000 Miles driven along with adding partners: CR Ranchwear, Branded Bills Headwear & KIMES Jeans to the mix.
Jeremy’s 2016 “FM” produced by Grammy Winner Jamie Tate in Nashville hit the streets January 1st, 2016, with early support from ITUNES, being featured on the FRONT PAGE of the Music Giant’s “New & Noteworthy”.
During the (Year Long) TROUBLEMAKER Tour (which is now rolling into two years) McComb recorded his new DOUBLE LIVE album to capture the essence of his unique approach to his shows.. “TroubleMaker LIVE!” was recorded during a few select Sold Out Shows and releases January 5th 2018. The miles and crowds racked up have brought this troubadour to the next level of story-telling. Bringing the delivery he learned (as Larry The Cable Guys Tour Manager Years ago) and the art of a perfectly timed story or line (he confesses he breaks down comedy bits from his favorite artists like Carlin and other comedic genius.) has interwoven an amazing interaction with his audience. An audience that has grown over ten years of heavy touring and is now showing up to rooms full of fans, wondering what he will say next.
“I love this slow grow we’ve had, it’s been just the most organic experience you could have as an artist coming out of record deals and then finding yourself and your voice and having your friends and fans and music lovers all over the place experiencing it with you has been humbling and incredible.” McComb believes that is what has brought his rabid fanbase to the stage with him. “Everyone of the people at my shows feel like they’re on the front line with me, just trying to win over the next handful of fans and the next milestone. ANYTHING good thats comes from anything I do is because of their belief, It’s kept me from quitting many times over the years.”
Quitting is something Jeremy does. As described on his Podcast “2Dumb2Quit” and in the way he tells his own story on stage. He’s a true troubadour, a Story-teller and as he puts it a “Shit-Talker”. With 2017 being a record year and 2018 bringing another full tour it seems like this old road dog may finally get some of the due he deserves.
