Though Jeremy Erick Facknitz was always an imaginative, sensitive, narcissistic, cross-dressing introvert, he didn't pick up a guitar and start writing songs until he was 18 years old. Within a few short months the michigan native found himself competing in local talent shows and jamming in various basement bands. In 1997 he made the trek upstairs and joined the Detroit-based band "The Ottomans" (2001 best new alternative band, detroit music awards). Jeremy played bass guitar in the project, was the main music contributor to the groups compositions. After "the ottomans" parted ways in 2002, jeremy and brother jarod formed under the moniker "standing room only" and shared their not-so-subtle mix of deadly serious and comedic songs with intimate coffee shop gatherings throughout the mid-west. Since going solo in september 2003, Jeremy has lived and played all over the united states, and has opened for the likes of Tim Reynolds and Lindsay Weidmann. After mini-tours in 2006 and 2008, Jeremy attacked the united states in 2010 performing over 70 shows in 24 states, his biggest tour yet. Jeremy is currently living in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he's working on a new solo album, composing and recording for commercial and television, teaching lessons and enjoying life in the west with his young family.
