Jeremy Keen's first full-length solo debut album entitled False Starts on Ground Vinyl Records captures Keen's raw emotion using beautiful arrangements and a wide stylistic range. Like the premier solo records of artists like Paul McCartney, Sufjan Stevens, or Elliott Smith, Jeremy played most of the instruments and recorded much of the album himself. Keen says, 'The idea in making this record was to capture the reactions I had to a tragic death in my family. All of the songs on this album are very personal and I wanted a medium to expose my thoughts as a way of coping with this dreadful situation. This record helped me grieve. Hopefully, others will find comfort in the fact that although there is suffering, there is also hope.' Although this is Jeremy's first solo record, he is no newcomer to the music scene. He may be best known for playing in Chicago's popular folk-rock outfit, Seventy Two Others with friend Mike Reeb. The duo released a series of records and EPs on the Ground Vinyl Records label and performed with the likes of Denison Witmer, Andy Zipf, Pete Krebs, Sleeping at Last, and Switchfoot.
