“…He’s very sensitive, yet a wonderfully powerful drummer as needed; he tastefully drives, and provides a sound heartbeat for the section…” -Marquis Hill
Jeremy Cunningham is a much-sought Chicago artist – a uniquely insightful drummer-composer and improviser. Since moving from his native home of Cincinnati, Ohio – in 2009 – he has become an integral part of the Chicago music scene. Jeremy has performed with such luminaries as Von Freeman, Chris Foreman, Marquis Hill, Greg Ward, Jeff Parker, Mars Williams, Jeb Bishop, Dave Miller, and Nick Mazzarella. He can be heard on Marquis Hill’s albums, “New Gospel,” and “Sounds of the City,” and also on Caroline Davis’s “Live, Work, Play.” In addition to performing in clubs and festivals throughout Chicago, Jeremy also appears throughout the United States with various projects. He has also toured internationally, making rich contributions to IsWhat?!, Moshier/Lebrun Collective, and Paul Giallorenzo’s GitGo. Jeremy earned a Bachelors of Music from the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, under the able guidance of John Von Ohlen and Art Gore. Under the guidance of Dana Hall, Jeremy now pursues a Masters in Jazz Performance, at DePaul University.
