Former Midnight Youth Singer Moving On

Former Midnight Youth Singer Moving On

On the eve of lead singer Jeremy Redmore's final show with former band Midnight Youth this weekend at Homegrown, the newly "single" songwriter is gearing himself up to make a new musical statement.

Redmore announced he was leaving the award-winning, platinum-selling Midnight Youth, along with the record deal that went with the band, in September last year and now 2013 finds Redmore ready to show us just why he's put himself through this whirlwind of change.

His first single, titled 'One Day Alone', was recorded at Neil Finn's Roundhead Studios with producer Wayne Bell (Gin Wigmore, Jan Hellriegel, Andrew Keoghan) and is set for release in April along with a creatively-inspired music video.

Redmore and high-school friend/director Michael Humphrey have curated the creation of six 29-second clips made by independent film makers from around the world (who have no contact with eachother) that will be slotted into the track, much like puzzle pieces, to form the resulting, fully-formed, music video.

This creative, DIY approach has also carried over into the development of songs for what will become Redmore's debut solo release. Redmore has been exposing his bedroom demos to a building base of personal fans on his social media sites in order to garner constructive feedback on the tunes before they are thrust into the world of studio recording.

"I don't see why artists often hide and rarely expose the initial creative bursts of songs from their fans. I personally couldn't think of a more fascinating journey to go on with an artist than to share the creative one - from rough bedroom recording, through to polished studio and release."

April 2013 - hear the music that drove Jeremy Redmore to leave the safety and success of Midnight Youth in favour of a new creative road.
