Jeremy Wilms

Atlanta, GA based multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter. After a 20 year career as a recoding and touring musician in NYC working with artists as diverse as NEA Jazz legend Chico Hamilton, to Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto, to Beyonce and Patti Labelle, Wilms stepped away from the grind of the city and moved back to his hometown of Atlanta. There he returned his focus to stripped down honest songwriting and conveying stories. His latest release “The Fighter” is available at Bandcamp and other streaming platforms.
In the meantime he keeps busy working as a sideman in both NYC and ATL, scoring for film and other media, and teaching.

"The more collaborators he mentions the more impressive the list becomes. From suppertime jazz to skronking and wailing, Wilms has achieved about as much as is possible in his role." -RAD/ATL

"After two decades in NYC, Atlanta-born multi-instrumentalist is back and making music true to himself" - Atlanta Journal Constitution

"Jeremy Wilms is a composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist based in New York City
