‘Iron & Coal’ tells the amazing story of his Father an Auschwitz survivor and his life after the war. He also describes the influences this has for his son and how he is confronted with his father’s past. In his amazing album Jeremy turns his father’s book into a beautiful album. “I created this album as a tribute to my father, my grandparents, and to all of those who survived the Holocaust and their children who grew up living beneath the shadows of those horrific experiences,” says Jeremy.
The singer/songwriter concept album is not a new undertaking for Jeremy, his Drift album was translated into a production as a benefit concert at BB Kings in New York City starring Adam Pascal, Julia Murney, Terrence Mann, Jarrod Emick, and Adam Kantor, among others. It garnered Schonfeld several “Best of…” honors including “Best Show of 2009” from Triangle Arts & Entertainment, and “Best Original Music” from Indy Week.
