New Bern, North Carolina native and haunting folk troubadour Jeremy Squires engages listeners with his uniquely dark and beautifully vulnerable songs.
"While Americana music is littered with melancholy tales of drinking, loss, and broken romance, Squires delivers raw, concise lyrics – ungarnished by flowery rhetoric that candidly spell out tragedy. Squires relates sadness in a way that listeners can relate too."
- No Depression
“Poem is moody and takes what’s considered “Americana” by its ear and dares us to explore what works within the confines of genre. Much like how Lucero dove on Among the Ghosts and Jason Isbell did with The Nashville Sound.”
- Farce the Music
“For anyone unfamiliar with Jeremy Squires, Poem is a good introduction to his heartfelt and emotionally wrought folk music. The music acts as a vehicle that delivers Squires’s explorations of life, love and death with maximum unpretentious emotional heft.”
