Jeremih


Jeremih Felton (born July 17, 1987), who performs under the mononym Jeremih /ˈdʒɛrɨmaɪ/, is an American recording artist and producer signed to Def Jam. Jeremih's debut single, "Birthday Sex" (which was also recorded in French), peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100. His first and self-titled album, Jeremih, debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200, selling 59,000 copies in its first week. On September 28, 2010, he released his second album, All About You. In 2014 he released the single Don't Tell 'Em, which peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100.

Born into a musical family, in Chicago, Illinois, he began playing instruments at the age of three and taught himself how to play several, including drums, piano and the saxophone. Jeremih attended Morgan Park High School, where he was part of the marching band as well as a Latin jazz band, where he learned to play percussion instruments like congas and timbales. He graduated at the age of 16 and enrolled into Parkland College, which is near the University of Illinois to pursue a career in engineering. Having graduated from high school at an early age, he said in an interview that he found himself "getting in a lot of trouble" while attending the university and plans on returning to earn his degree. After performing a tribute for Ray Charles at one of the campus's talent shows, he received positive feedback and realized his vocal ability, saying that the "music was just taking over". In 2007, he enrolled in Columbia College Chicago to pursue a degree in music business.

Raised on the South side of Chicago by two generations of musical talent in his mother and grandmother, singing was not just a hobby, nor was it a choice; it was a way of life.
Basically self taught, by the time he reached high school, Jeremih could play the sax, the drums, the piano, the bass guitar and the quads.
So strong was this new found performer in Jeremih, that he decided to ditch the “safe” career path in engineering science he had been carving out in favor of something more true to his passion.
He returned to Chicago to enroll in a music business degree program at Columbia College, where a chance meeting with a young producer, Mick Schultz would set his dream in motion and his sound in stone.
