Dear Jeremy Loops

November 25, 2013

I meant to track you down after your set at Parklife on Sunday and talk at length about how much I enjoyed it. Some Dirty Skirts got in the way of that idea then, but I still wanted to say thank you.

It’s such a beautiful time for local music right now. Well, summer’s a beautiful time for anything, but there are so many artists we adore at the moment. I don’t get out to as many shows as I used to – ya know, adulthood and all that – but maybe still see one or two a week when the going is good, and I’m solidly convinced that your live show is one of the best things on the local music scene right now.

I had a bit of a crappy day on Saturday and so showed up to Parklife on Sunday with a disproportionate dose of the Sunday blues. When you got up on stage and let loose your first harmonica run, I can’t describe it as anything other than the clouds of melodramatic gloom parting. The world, and I, felt instantly happier when you started playing. Your songs lifted a weight off my mind like nothing has in a long time. I don’t think I’ve had such an emotional response to music since the first time I got to see Bon Jovi live and sobbed with happiness for the entirety of their opening number.

So I wrote it up here because I wanted to be certain you’d know that your music has this truly wonderful effect on people and you’d know how thankful I am for it.

I hope you get to keep making it for a really really long time.

With much respect,
