“[Jeremy Messersmith’s] hyper-literate, hyper-melodic tunes just keep getting better.” – NBC New York
 
“Messersmith’s voice is an airy, whispery kind of instrument, his singing is as clear as a piece of cut  
crystal.” – NPR
  
“His songs seem to remind us that for every bit of rottenness that is out there… there are so many more flashes of incredible beauty. – Daytrotter  
 
 

 

Minnesota-based songwriter Jeremy Messersmith & his band are pleased to announce another string of summer tour dates, this time making their way to the West coast.
