Jeremy Cays' music can best be described as "a musical massage." His contemplative piano melodies, combined with woodwinds, guitars, and light percussion bring his listeners to a place of total relaxation and contentment. Jeremy began playing the piano by ear and composing music of his own at age 5. Although he took formal piano lessons as a child, his creative side was always predominant. At age 14, he decided to put his creativity to use by starting his first recording project (A New Journey). After looking into several recording studios, Jeremy decided to visit Triad Studios in Redmond, Washington - a full-scale multi-room facility. Although he was impressed with the 8-foot long mixing console, it was playing the 7-foot Yamaha grand piano that convinced him to record there. With a shoestring budget and little knowledge about the recording industry, Jeremy dove into the project head first. It took three years and a private loan to complete the recording, but because he produced it himself, Jeremy was able to gain invaluable experience working with several professionals in the business, including Grammy-Award winner, Nancy Rumbel. In the summer of 1998, A New Journey was finally released. Jeremy was just 17 years old at the time. After high school, Jeremy enrolled in the Digital Music Program at Edmonds Community College. With a program comparable to the University of Washington, EdCC gave Jeremy the tools he needed to establish his own recording studio. After two years at EdCC, Jeremy began saving money for the equipment he would need. By the fall of 2002, Jeremy's studio was up and running. Since then, he has produced two new recordings - In the Quiet Moments, a solo piano mini-album; and his newest release, Reflections of Christmas, a holiday album featuring Jeremy's unique, contemporary arrangements of traditional Christmas songs. Currently, Jeremy is working in his recording studio, engineering and producing other musicians' projects, as well as working on his own. Comments About Jeremy's Music... "It's always a thrill to find a new young artist whose music is beautiful and interesting to listen to and Jeremy Cays' music is just that. His first recording 'A NEW JOURNEY' is a wonderful opportunity to hear not only his fine musicianship as a pianist, but even more unique and rare, his wonderful skills as a composer. I am pleased to have performed on this release." ~Nancy Rumbel 2003 Grammy Winner, Best New Age Album "Everything about the recording is first rate and a testament to good judgement...Buy it before he's famous." ~Patrice O'Neill Victory Music Review.
