Jeremiah Sammartano, the Los Angeles based, Native American, Emmy nominated singer/songwriter who fronts the bluesy/Americana group, Jeremiah and the Red Eyes, has covered many miles over the past several years - taking the various roads spreading music influenced by the raw blues of Charley Patton, the lyrical and often raucous sounds of The Pogues, the twang of Willie Nelson, and some vintage rock and roll - "Delta Blues and Twangy Grooves" - from Los Angeles outward through the Southwest, Austin, St. Louis, Nashville (where he relocated for a spell in 2008-2009), Chicago - and overseas to the UK. In the past Jeremiah has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Southern Culture On The Skids, David Olney, Mike Stinson, SHURMAN and has performed on the radio shows: WDVX Blue Plate Special out of Knoxville, TN., The Live@Lunch show on KRFC out of Fort Collins, CO., and Chris Morris' Watusi Rodeo show out of Los Angeles. In Spring 2011 Jeremiah received an Emmy nomination for writing music for the documentary, Prison Through Tomorrow's Eyes. Three albums have been released - 2004's Red Eyed And Restless, 2010's Under Your Spell and in December 2012, a 10 song album called HOME - which was followed, in 2013, by local shows and a couple national tours with friend and fellow singer/songwriter, Mikaela Dewar, from New Zealand currently living in Nashville. 2014 has more tours and shows, plans to record, and to head over to Europe again.
