''The Orange Songs'' finds Jeremy Gloff in a more vunerable mood than usual. This may be the most lyrically blunt album he has ever released. No one escapes commentary on this release, Gloff talks about his distaste for the mainstream gay culture, talks frankly about the dark side of sexuality (in the shockingly haunting "Sexual Dysfunction"), among other things. If you are an internal person who thinks and feels a lot, this album is for you.
Press release about ''THE ORANGE SONGS''
from the desk of jeremy gloff:
This album had quite the unique conception. In early January I''d gone into the studio to begin recording the follow-up to my Romantico album, which was a full-band album to be titled Now''s The Right Time To Feel Good. I halted production mid-way through that album and opted record The Orange Songs instead. This extremely personal collection served as the final project in my Psychology Of Personal Growth class, taught by the very
special Norma Caltagirone. After a series of more polished, somewhat compromised albums, I''d started getting really bored with music. With these songs, I got an A in my class and began to love singing again.
JEREMY GLOFF BIOGRAPHY:
If you are looking for intelligent pop music, Jeremy Gloff is your man. Through fourteen albums, Gloff''s songs have mapped a musical and personal evolution. Honest. Edgy yet catchy. Unpretentious. Gloff''s a talented songsmith with a knack for super-introspective lyrics about relationships, sexuality, and self awareness. These hyper-personal musings are craftily paired with uber-catchy melodies, softening the blow of his sometimes shocking confessions.
If you are looking for someone to fill the void left by Elton John after the 1970s, Jeremy Gloff is also your man. In photos you may see Jeremy with an acoustic guitar, but onstage he''s more diva than demure. During his one man shows, Gloff accompanies himself with a keyboard, a drum machine, and a guitar. His quirky stage persona is characterized by endearing, candid song introductions and impassioned, raw deliveries. Madonna was the Beatles of Gloff''s generation, and it shows.
Constantly improving and gaining fans over his twelve-plus years of being fabulous, Jeremy Gloff has remained committed to his art and his appreciation for the perfect pop song. He''s won numerous "Best of The Bay" awards while living in Tampa, and he was also voted one of the 50 Best Unsigned Acts in the 2001 CMJ/Coca Cola New Music Search.
If you are looking to make a new friend in music, Jeremy Gloff is your man.
