“Icy, minimal but tuneful electronic pop” – The New York Times

“glisten reflects Zucker’s dedication to creating music that echoes what’s happening during his life at a given moment.” – Billboard

[Of “comethru”] “Zucker’s smooth vocals glide over bright strums of a guitar as he sings about his summer on the mellow track.” – COMPLEX

[Of “better off”] “The 21-year-old takes it to the next level…a finely-wrought duet
with fellow Next Big Thing Chelsea Cutler.” – Idolator

Multi-talented, Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker unveils his latest single “thinking 2 much” today—listen here. “thinking 2 much” and Zucker’s recently released single “comethru” are taken from his upcoming EP summer, set for release on September 28th.

Zucker just kicked off his first-ever North American headline tour, the “anything, anywhere tour,” of which 21 of the 23 shows sold out in advance of the tour. See the full list of dates below.

Growing up in suburban New Jersey, 22-year-old singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker has always been surrounded by music. As a child, he took piano and guitar lessons and formed a band with two friends from elementary school. By high school, he was writing lyrics and producing songs for other people. Eventually, Zucker recorded a rough demo, which became his first real release beach island in the summer of 2015. He followed it with breathe in the fall of that same year as a freshman at Colorado College pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology. He cranked out songs in his dorm room and released them over Soundcloud—one every week. He later transferred them over to Spotify, where breathe’s lead single “Bout It” became the catalyst, hitting Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist.

From there Zucker released motions in 2017 and performed at his first sold-out show at The Studio of Webster Hall that summer. Following the massive streaming success of his 2017 single “talk is overrated” featuring blackbear, 2018’s intensely personal EP glisten delivered the groundbreaking song “all the kids are depressed,” the first widespread glimpse into Zucker’s songwriting ethos. The track has over 30 million Spotify streams to date and its powerful video, directed by Drew Kirsch (Felix Jaehn, blackbear, Louis the Child, Quinn XCII), has over 5 million views to date. In May, he graduated from Colorado College and put his degree aside to finally pursue his dream of making music. As Zucker enters this next phase of his career, he brings a new love letter to life that fans will undoubtedly connect with. “comethru” and “thinking 2 much” set the stage for further music from Jeremy Zucker in 2018.

Jeremy Zucker’s Glisten EP

Multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer, Jeremy Zucker’s new EP, glisten, is out now—listen here.

glisten features Zucker’s recently released tracks, “all the kids are depressed” and “better off” with rising artist Chelsea Cutler. See the full tracklist below.

Of the EP, Jeremy says, “I wrote this EP during my senior year of college while I was doing my best to balance the pressures of school, music and a decent social life. glisten is a collection of the thoughts, feelings and memories that kept me sane these past ten months.”

Before entrancing listeners across the world, 21-year-old singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker had been quietly carving out his distinct sound from a bedroom in suburban New Jersey. A self-described “social introvert,” Zucker cites Jon Bellion, blackbear, EDEN, Bon Iver and Wet among his strongest influences. In the summer of 2015, Zucker released his first official EP titled Beach Island. The project saw a small amount of success, and from there Zucker steadily began to build a dedicated fan base.

Later that year, he released a stream of singles that would eventually be packaged together as an EP titled Breathe. The project’s breakout single “Bout It” quickly garnered millions of streams as it organically spread across Soundcloud and Spotify, drawing the attention of curators and fans across the world. In 2016, Zucker released his third EP, Motions, which features “Heavy,” a song that was later remixed by the recording artist blackbear who reached out to Jeremy after stumbling across his music on Soundcloud. The remix, “Make Daddy Proud,” was released on blackbear’s latest LP Digital Druglord. In 2017, Zucker was signed with Republic Records and released his third EP, idle. The EP features his breakout hit, “talk is overrated” (feat. blackbear), which has over 15 million Spotify streams to date. Further music is set for release this spring.

New Music From Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler

Today, multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer, Jeremy Zucker, debuts his latest song, “better off” with rising artist Chelsea Cutler—listen and share the track here.

Of “better off,” Zucker says, “I spent a whole week up in rural Connecticut at a studio that was built inside of an old carriage house. The last day I was there, Chelsea came up to write some new music with me and my best friend. I just remember Chelsea sitting down and playing this beautiful acoustic riff; I asked her what it was, and she responded, “I don’t know, I just came up with it.” For the next three hours, we wrote nonstop, cut vocals and passed out in the studio. I stayed up until sunrise finishing the production, and then Chelsea added those beautiful piano hits you can hear at the end of the track. The song probably took us 16 hours start to finish—it was one of the most organic, beautiful sessions I’ve ever done, and I’m so excited about how the song came out.”

“better off” follows Zucker’s previously released single, “all the kids are depressed,” which The New York Times hailed as “icy, minimal but tuneful electronic pop.”

Jeremy Zucker Bio

Before entrancing listeners across the world, 21-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Zucker had been quietly carving out his distinct sound from a bedroom in suburban New Jersey. A fusion of organic airy beats, lush soundtrack-style soundscapes, and biting tumblr-worthy lyricism, Zucker’s catalog is eclectic: equally care-free and effortless as it is introspectively cathartic. A self-described “social introvert,” Zucker cites Jon Bellion, Blackbear, EDEN, Bon Iver, and Wet among his strongest influences.

In the summer of 2015, Zucker released his first official EP entitled “Beach Island.” The project saw a small amount of success and from there Zucker steadily began to build a dedicated fan base. Later that year he released a stream of singles that would eventually be packaged together as an EP titled “Breathe.” The project’s breakout single “Bout It” quickly garnered millions of streams as it organically spread across Soundcloud and Spotify, drawing the attention of curators and fans across the world. In 2016 Zucker released his third EP, “Motions,” which featured “Heavy,” a song that was later remixed by the recording artist Blackbear who reached out to Jeremy after stumbling across his music on
Soundcloud. The remix, “Make Daddy Proud,” was released on Blackbear’s latest LP “Digital Druglord.” 2017 continues the upward trend for Zucker; he recently signed with Republic Records and is currently gearing up for his major label debut.
