JAAG is the composer, director, and performing artist Jeremiah Gray. Based in Newbury Park, CA, his musical journey began at the age of 17 when, inspired by Jack Bruce of 1960’s rock trio ‘Cream’, he began studying music classically; learning to play the bass guitar and sing opera. He has studied classical voice and theory at Moorpark College, and recently completed his BA in Music with emphasis in Production from California Lutheran University.
Frequently told to turn his bass down, Jeremiah picked up the pen and made the leap from instrumentalist to songwriter/composer, writing his first piece in the winter of 2016 and has not looked back since. A multi-instrumentalist, proficient in guitar, piano, percussion, mandolin, ukulele, and harmonica, and currently adding trumpet to his repertoire.
The music of JAAG features an exciting spectrum of musical styles and arrangements, ranging from fiery alt-rock ‘Red Room’, powerful, anthemic gospel 'The Promised Land' , progressive, 80's throwback hit 'Aglow’, and haunting single, 'Tension'.
JAAG is distinguished by his thematic melodies that will leave you humming long after your first listen, as well as his ability to compose chameleon-like in any genre fluently.
Recently, JAAG completed a 3 song EP titled ‘In The Dark’, released in November 2019, and a new single 'Tension', released July 25th!
