Jeremy Wilms is a songwriter, composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist based in Atlanta, GA.
After an over 20 year career in music in New York, Jeremy and his family relocated to the suburbs of Atlanta at the height of the pandemic. There he rediscovered his roots and began writing stripped down simple songs about the experience of life, the joy and pain, gain and loss of every day experience.
during his time in New York City he jammed with Ornette Coleman at his loft and played Broadway revues at retirement communities in New Jersey (sometimes in the same weekend). He was briefly in Chico Hamilton’s band playing guitar, and played bass on Broadway in Fela! the musical. During the tour for Fela! he played with Fela Kuti’s son Femi at the Shrine in Lagos and other venues around the world. He’s recorded with artists as diverse as Bebel Gilberto and Beyoncé.
Wilms played guitar and bass in the orchestra for MacArthur Fellowship winner Taylor Mac’s “24 Decade History Of Popular Music” as well as played bass, composed and arranged on ABC Network’s “The Gong Show”. He was also the arranger and musical director for The Heathens and other acts based at the fabled Mckittrick Hotel, home of “Sleep No More” in NYC.
