The Jeremy Vogt (vote) Band has had a presence in the Indiana music circuit in one form or another since 1996. Singer/songwriter, Jeremy Vogt, has assembled a unique blend of musicians including Christian Starnes (Bass), Ryan Shore (percussion), and Curtis Cree (vocals and lead guitar) to present the debut album, People in Strange Places.
Music is a strange and special sort of magic that is capable of speaking both to the intellect and to the soul simultaneously. There are a lucky few who are gifted with the ability to communicate using this versatile medium, and we call them artists or musical communicators. The 11-track debut album (2005) from the Jeremy Vogt Band exemplifies the universal nature of this magic. Their message is forged through the simplicity of acoustical arrangements and pure vocals, or is it really that simple? Could it be a case of "less is more"? In avoiding over-dubbed, distorted, nebulous mish-mash, the band has found a power that comes from the fundamental appeal of music: powerfully infectious melodies and complementary harmony presented in a way that effortlessly draws the listener into the music.
With such a solid and memorable debut album making waves, it would seem that the band has a great deal to prove outside of the studio. This is where the Jeremy Vogt Band comes to life, winning over countless fans with their interactive, high-energy performances. The band continues to tour the Midwest while focusing on exactly what got them where they are: a passion for playing and making great music.
