Jeremie Albino is 26 and never worked with a band or a producer until now.
Well, better than late than never because Jeremie has created a debut album dripping with beer-n-bourbon soaked American soul.
There’s a yearning to Jeremie’s earthy voice – and his music drives forth with banjo twangs, harmonica licks, piano key flutters, and hardened guitar sweeps.
Jeremie’s LP is called Hard Time, but the tunes are easy on the ears and available now.

SIX CRUCIAL QUESTIONS for JEREMIE ALBINO
AGE (if you want to give it up): 26
BAND: Jeremie Albino
POSITION: Lead Singer/Guitar
HOMETOWN: Toronto, Canada. Scarborough, if you want to be specific
1. What is your earliest musical memory?
Probably this old French nursery rhyme my mom used to sing me when I was sick or it’s of my dad blasting James Taylor’s greatest hits or some Bob Marley record to wake us up on a Sunday morning.
2. What has been your most embarrassing musical moment?
I’ve got these old recording sof me and my sister singing Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable.” I was just learning to play guitar and had no idea how to harmonize. It’s pretty funny hearing it but also cringy. Haha, I guess you’ve got to start somewhere though!
3. What do you like and dislike about touring?
Love seeing new places, meeting new friends, performing for new audiences and spending time with the guys in my backing band, the Rosehall Band. Really don’t love all the fast food/not a lot of good home cooked meals and having to sit in a van for a billion hours, haha.
4. What is your favorite record store, anywhere in the world?
Back Alley Music in Charlottetown PEI. They’ve got great records [and] a sweet pinball machine in the back.
5. Other than your own music, what is your favorite song or album of all-time? Why?
Harry Belafonte Live at Carnegie Hall has to be one of my favourite records of all time. The musicianship of the band and Harry’s voice and stage presence. It’s just so good!! There’s nothin’ really like it now days.
6. You wake up in a seedy Berlin hotel room with no recollection of the past 96 hours. Who is your first call?
My Ma and Pa for sure, haha.
