In a small town outside of Memphis, Tennessee, singer-songwriter Jeremiah Clark grew up on gospel, country and classic rock. His sound is organic, refreshing & vocally-driven, much like artists Jason Mraz, Kelly Clarkson and Richard Marx. Since 2010, he's toured the nation, playing for audiences in upwards of 10,000 people in over 70 cities, and you can now hear his latest single, “Ten Feet Tall on Tequila,” spinning on The Highway, SiriusXM Radio's up-and-coming country station. He will be joined by his band, The Reasons Why, for his highly-anticipated return to Portland in December as part of an extensive west coast tour to end 2015.
Drawing comparison to songwriter greats such James Taylor and Ryan Adams, he’s been locally recognized as the two-time ‘Songwriter of the Year’ by the Portland Songwriters Association and ‘Best Male Artist’ at the Portland Music Awards. On the national stage, Stenson was recently hand-picked by legendary producer Don Was as a Top 10 Finalist in Guitar Center’s Songwriter search and has opened for LeAnn Rimes, Chris Isaak, John Popper, Marc Cohn, Matisyahu and more. He’s a multi-song finalist in the 2014 International Songwriting Competition (ISC) and his music has been heard on SiriusXM’s “The Coffee House” station, as well as, a number of Chevrolet commercials and popular television series.
