Jeremy Squires - Oblivious

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!


Jeremy Squires - Oblivious (2013)


I know I jest about Tuesday Blues being a little gloomy, but for me it is an opportunity for me to share singer/songwriters who I find inspiring.

Here is someone who I know very little about but after hearing this I've wanted to find out more! Jeremy Squires is a multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter from North Carolina. I know it isn't one of the happiest of tracks, but his haunting melodies, evocative lyrics reminds me of songwriters such as Richard Buckner and Damien Jurado. Oblivious features on his recently released album, When Will I Go.  

If you like the above, have a listen to this cover of Damien Jurado's Sheets - you can certainly hear the influence within his songwriting!

I don't have to keep a diary, I knew it was Tuesday as soon as I saw Mr. Squires' hirsute face and plaid shirt. Nice vocal and good tune. We all need to get gloomy sometimes.

Anyone with the good taste to cover Damon Jurado is ok with me.
