Jeremy began playing fiddle as a child in Idaho and honed his skills at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, where he was named Bluegrass Male Vocalist of the Year in 1996. He has performed with an array of bluegrass artists, including Bobby Osborne, Chris Jones, Ronnie Bowman, and Jim Hurst, backed award-winning country singer Lee Ann Womack, and released an album (Jeremy and Glen Garrett) with his father that featured dozens of top-shelf bluegrass pickers and singers.

Jeremy made the leap in 2005 from sideman to full-fledged partner as a member of a The Infamous Stringdusters. In 2007 The Infamous Stringdusters won three IBMA awards (Best Album, Emerging Artist and Song of the Year) for their debut effort, “Fork In The Road.” They released a new self-titled album on Sugar Hill Records this summer.
