Jeremiah of Jeremiah & the Red Eyes plays a bittersweet brand of acoustic music. Fusing country, rock and folk styles, he rocks jams about love, loss and the devil, delivering them with gospel-style two-part harmonies. Despite their sense of pathos, the tunes manage to sound slightly optimistic. What makes this guy special, however, isn't his songwriting, but rather his laconic voice, which, at moments, has the cracks of a young Cat Stevens.
