Jeremy Sharma is an artist/musician residing in Singapore on the east coast. He is the former guitarist and songwriter for popular indie band Tiramisu and founder of multi-disciplinary art collective Kill Your Television. Sharma formed the Lacunas of Grace in 2005 to showcase his art, which encompasses painting, video, photography and music. He has released an experimental/electronica album called \'Nuclear Families\' in 2005 and released his sophomore album entitled \'Albatross\' in 2008. Where 'Nuclear Families' was an album of disparate elements - part electronica, part improvised but all out experimental, 'Albatross' returns Sharma to certain songwriting roots that got him to pick up a guitar and sing in the first place. Some of the songs were written around the time when he was playing for Tiramisu, which he could not use at all. The result is a cohesive body of songs that deal a lot with the problem of pain - from finding one's place in this world to dealing with human relationships. Told from Sharma's unique perspective, they are songs that run along feelings of despair, failure, guilt and doubt to love, devotion, courage and faith. They also reflect his uncontrollable love for making music itself, drawing influences from folk, bar/lounge jazz, blues, no wave, post punk, ronggeng, classical and country. It also features Delfi Esfandi, who wrote many of the piano parts and painter Ian Woo on bass. Both had collaborated with Sharma on 'Nuclear Families'.
