Short & Company
Original recipe singer-songwriter and genre-bending guitar blazer, Kentucky native Jeremy Short, has quickly risen to the top shelf of must-hear players on the scene. Given an Gibson SG, by his grandfather – a well known Methodist preacher, Short recalls with a laugh, “he handed it to me and said – let’s not make this a full time thing”.
First making a name for himself as the solo-ripping sideman of the red-hot Americana act, “Sasha Colette & The Magnolias”, then front man and lead guitarist of the horn-fueled R&B band “Downtown King”. Now he has found his home and what he calls “his own thing” in Short & Company.
Leaving his soul on the floor, and yours in shreds, “Ain’t That Workin”, “Bartender” and “Set in Her Ways” show why Short is a 2 Time Semi-finalist, and 2019 competitor at the International Blues Challenge, a competition featuring the best blues acts from around the globe.
But blues aren’t his only groove.
Touching on the throes of addiction, his shameless love of a strong willed woman, and his need to escape and hit the road, Short is unafraid to share both where he’s coming from and what exactly he is hoping to accomplish.
Having already notched his belt with festivals like Bonnaroo, Mountain Music Festival, FestivALL, Kickin It On The Creek, & Whispering Beard, as well as direct support for the likes of Taj Mahal, Robert Cray, Marcus King Band, & Rev Peyton & The Big Damn Band, the future is looking bright for both Short — and his Company.
