Short and Company - Sweet ‘n’ Nasty Soul Guitar Grooves All the Way Down

Brought up in Jackson, Ky., (hometown of Sturgill Simpson), original recipe singer/songwriter and genre-bending guitar blazer Jeremy Short has quickly risen to the top shelf of must-hear players on the regional scene.

Jeremy Short was raised in a musical family where music just poured out whether it was over at the Wolverine United Methodist Church, at the piano, or at the dinner table. The son of a rock ‘n’ roll drummer, he first found his professional groove as lead guitarist and front man for the R&B horn band, Downtown King and the lead guitarist for Sasha Colette's red-hot Americana backing band, The Magnolias.

Tangled up in the roots and blues, Short released his first solo EP, "Songs From the Chicken Shack," a stringer full of country-fried Delta-slide blues keepers, while Short and Company have blue-collar built regional audiences, electrifying crowds in Memphis, besting hundreds of bands to make it to the semi-finals of the International Blues Challenge while also quickly becoming a favorite on the regional festival and club scene.

Influenced by a wild-eyed range of guitarists such as Frank Zappa and Robin Trower and blessed with sweet Southern flowing vocal soul, Short - and his lock-step Company - testify there is plenty left to be said and added to the great scrolls of soul-shined Southern Rock.
