jeremy messersmith is an indie pop singer/songwriter based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His first album, The Alcatraz Kid (2006) featured quiet, often melancholic songs recorded in a basement studio. The album was well-received regionally and drew the attention of Twin Cities local hero Dan Wilson (Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic), who ended up producing Messersmith’s follow-up, The Silver City (2008). The Reluctant Graveyard was released in 2010 and his reputation for elegant, literate songcraft began to build nationally when NPR named it one of the Top Ten albums of 2010. He made a dramatic left turn in 2012 with the release of a six-song record of ambient, highly textured instrumental songs Paper Moon. That same year he continued to chase his quirky D.I.Y. tendencies by doing a tour of potluck-dinner house concerts. In 2013, he signed a deal with New York-based label Glassnote Records and released his fifth album, Heart Murmurs, in early 2014. In April 2017, messersmith published a songbook of ukulele music and later released his versions of the songs in the album 11 Obscenely Optimistic Songs For Ukulele: A Micro Folk Record For The 21st Century And Beyond. His newest effort, the orchestral pop record Late Stage Capitalism, is out in March of 2018.
