Rural Mississippi was not a friendly setting for a budding artist. Many problems arose for the Lister brothers, most notably Jeremy's hospitalization after a vicious group beating left him near death with severe head trauma. After recovering from the attack, Jeremy found himself feeling more empowered than ever to continue developing his creativity through music. At ages 12 and 13, he traveled through Europe and the U.K.
with his parents. The trip changed his perspective on life and music and opened his ears to bands from across the Atlantic. Upon returning to the States, he began exploring different musical outlets, ranging from an A cappella quartet to a progressive rock band. Setting out on his own in 2003, Jeremy moved to Nashville, TN, bringing his first EP "Shooting Star" with him.
Here he began playing writers nights and passing his CD along to anyone who would listen. In 2005, he released his second album, the "So Far" EP, and quickly gained the attention of Warner Bros. Records. The label put him in the studio, where he wrote over 100 songs during '06.
In the spring of 2007, Lister signed a record deal with WBR. His debut release, the "Just One Day" EP, was released digitally on November 20, 2007. He's currently touring and working on songs for his full length expected to be released in 08. Read more on Last.fm.
