Jeremey Frederick's Every Little Thing is the highly anticipated and eclectic debut CD from one of America's most versatile and exciting rock vocalists. A unique sonic blend of fresh, modern pop and melodic rock, Every Little Thing is a hook-laden album that showcases the singular voice of a singer and songwriter that first made a name for himself as one of the country's most successful tribute artists.
When Jeremey was contacted by the rock group Journey in 2007 to move forward with the band as their new lead vocalist and front man, he had no idea the dramatic turn his life would soon take. While the opportunity didn't pan out as expected, his time with Journey resulted in a co-writing credit on the band's Platinum selling 2008 release, Revelation. Rather than build on that milestone as a sound-a-like, however, Jeremey began an exploration of his own voice and melodic influences.
The result is 2012's Every Little Thing, an album that finds Jeremey traveling roads first paved by such diverse and iconic influences as Tom Petty, The Beach Boys, Tears For Fears and Peter Gabriel (to name a few). There is a common thread throughout the CD that draws inevitable comparisons to bands like Journey and the power-pop sensibilities of The Outfield (John Spinks, founding member and guitarist of The Outfield, appears on two of the ten tracks).
Ultimately, however, Jeremey's melodic vision carves its own musical niche. Songs such as the driving title track and "What Can I Do" are hooky, sing-a-long bites of melodic rock candy. Those punchy little anthems are complimented by the quiet soulfulness of "Hoping For You," the dark jazz number "I Think I Know," and the powerful ballad "This Is Your Life." The latter was released as a taster and lead-off single in 2011 and met with solid critical acclaim. The CD's sole cover song ("Goodnight Song" by Tears for Fears) hit number one for two consecutive weeks in January of 2012 on regional rock radio (Class X FM, 88.9 WMWX, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky).
Jeremey continues to tour full time throughout 2012 fronting the tribute act Frontiers, as well as select solo dates supporting the new release.
