Credited with more than 60 commercial works, Jeremy has been awarded the prestigious British Academy Award (BAFTA), in addition to various other awards and nominations. His music has been distributed across more than 70 million copies sold world-wide since 1994, earning Jeremy the distinguishment of being one of the leading composers of our time.

"Kickstarter offers us a wonderful opportunity, and with your help, we can kindle the beginnings of what will be a new way in which to bring life to music in the concert hall and into the lives of others.  I want to thank you in advance, dear friends and supporters, for your kindness, enthusiasm, and belief in what I do.  I look forward to writing this work for you."

Update from the composer:

Thank you everyone as I'm humbled and grateful for your friendship and support!!! 

What's next?? I'll be honest, I'm not a kickstarter guru. I'm not savvy with it and that much I know because I have already been given good feedback on how to make it better. But that said, as we exceed our original goal, I'm able to invest more into the recording. My original plan was to record with a hybrid between live and digital elements--not unlike what you heard with Skyrim. But new possibilities open up depending on what happens. 

On the top end of the spectrum, we could record in London with a full symphony and choir. We'll see as this is very expensive. However, I personally am not paying myself anything to make this music. It is a labor of love. 

Every dime I make will go back into the recording.
