Sounds of Secret Stages 2016 #12: Jeremy Squires

It's sweltering out there, which can only mean it's getting to be about time for the 2016 installment of Alabama's awesome little music festival, Secret Stages. In a mere few days, a bunch of great local/regional/further afield bands will descend on Birmingham for what promises to be a heck of a good time. (Once again) I won't be there, dangit, but here's who I think is really worth checking out from the excellent lineup.

New Bern is a pretty little city in a pretty corner of North Carolina, full of scenery both faded and lovely and more than a little rough around the edges. Jeremy Squires carries in his voice the undeniable charms of the small Southern city, as well as a darker, haunted undercurrent. The occasional chill can and should be expected when listening to this talented songsmith.
