Local artist Jeremy James comes back for an encore performance with the Progressions Concert Series hot on the heels of his recent release of Grey Gardens.

?Jeremy James? name is a hallmark of songwriting talent. His naked power-folk is a boon to the Albany scene. Featured on local radio station WEQX, James is also listed as an ?essential pick? by Internet radio?s RadioioAcoustic. James is an old soul whose new release is more colorful than its name suggests. With a voice like Loudon Wainwright?s and lyrics like Joni Mitchell?s, this one-time country boy is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.? ? CE Skidmore, Glens Falls Post Star
