Inspired by an unwavering love for summers spent in the mountains, along with the tall tales from his youth, Jeremiah Tall is a one-man show based out of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Tall's tales range from the struggles of finding your feet on an ever-changing landscape to fictional stories of cowboys and the common man’s battle with the devil. A hand painted suitcase converted into a kick drum provides a backbone to his own throwback spin on folk rock.
"Stories of cowboys and battles with the devil are pumped out over whip-smart banjo playing, a double bass and a hand-painted suitcase converted into a kick drum. Sounding like a super-charged William Elliott Whitmore with stupendous hair, Tall makes a tremendous racket. Consider us sold." - Ian Parker, For Folk's Sake
"With a driving kick drum backbone and a banjo swing, "Moonlight" embraces a lush full-band-arrangement that includes fiddles and ominous harmonies that revels in the devilish quality of a typically tranquil facet of the nighttime. It is clear that the theme of the common man’s battle with the devil is a running concept within much of Tall’s music and I for one, can’t get enough of the wicked hours it weaves." - Dean Keim, Pancakes and Whiskey
"Jeremiah Tall, hailing from just across the Delaware River in Bucks County, PA, has melded his own brand of folk punk with country-grass hues” - No Depression
"Jeremiah Tall is quite literally a one-man band, channeling rowdy barroom rock energy into rabble rousing, bourbon-soaked country with just himself and a hand-painted suitcase converted into a kick drum." - John Vettese, The Key
"Alt-folk troubadour Jeremiah Tall spins his story-singing yarns as a certifiable one-man-traveling-band. Playing acoustic guitar and banjo, adding the occasional harmonica spice, and accompanying himself on a John Wayne-emblazoned suitcase-turned-kick drum, Tall’s voice prays and pleads while his foot pounds out the rhythmic heartbeat of each song’s life. Tall’s lyrics deal with folk mythology, tall tales, and the ever-present struggle between man, God, and the devil, while his music is birthed in folk, blues, and traditional roots music. For my two cents, “Train” is a must-hear masterpiece." - Will Hodges, Noisetrade
