Jeremy was the lead singer of Midnight Youth, who were probably NZ’s biggest rock band from 2009-2012. In this episode we talk about the band's wild ride; Jeremy’s transition from journalist to musician, the fame – and attention he got on night's out, stories from backstage at the Big Day Out, the manager who ripped them off and why the band split up. We find out why he walked away from music to make coffee in Canada for a few years, and the break-up that brought him back to his guitar.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
