There’s something about the music of Jeremy Ivey that goes beyond the bounds of the traditional singer songwriter. Perhaps it’s the fact that he resisted putting out his own material for so long, maybe it’s the fact that he’s a better songwriter than he knows or maybe just maybe, he has that quintessential something that makes for a sound that’s as universal as music gets. On his new single “Greyhound” he not only incorporates the vocals of his wife Margo Price, he places his stamp on an Americana tinged sound that makes us excited about what his upcoming full length The Dream and The Dreamer will ultimately sound like.
The easy going acoustic tone that leads the song has this folksy demeanor before Ivey and Price meet together vocally. The two together create a sound that’s heavenly while the song gets touches of Western swing and Americana. It’s a track that’s sure to stay with you, while tip toeing into country without ever taking the plunge.
The song can be streamed on all streaming sites and the video ca be viewed above or on YouTube. The Dream and The Dreamer is available for pre-order directly from Anti- Records ahead of its September 13 release. Jeremy Ivey will be on tour beginning September 26 at Zanzabar in Louisville, KY until October 26 at Ambrose West in Asheville, NC. His complete tour listings can be accessed here.
