When 25-year-old singer, songwriter, producer Jeremy Zucker wowed the world with his 2018 breakout single, “comethru,” he was in his home state of New Jersey in his childhood bedroom. In a contemplative space, Zucker would craft a song that would ultimately change his life, despite already landing a recording contract with Republic Records and selling over 500,000 singles the year prior. That was less than two years ago, and during that time Zucker would tour the world, release groundbreaking projects, and amass over 6 billion global streams. The recent release of his debut album ‘love is not dying', however, is his biggest to date and will continue Zucker’s upward trajectory.
Prior to “comethru,” Zucker was a streaming music fixture, galvanizing a significant fan base while still within the halls of Colorado College. A handful of EP’s, including 2015’s beach island and breathe and 2017’s motions, were the catalyst. After signing to Republic Records in 2017 during his senior year of college, he hit the ground running with two more EP’s, idle and glisten, which featured viral hits and Gold Certified “talk is overrated” and “all the kids are depressed.” In the Fall of 2018, he released his final EP, summer, which included the Platinum Certified “comethru.” The song would go on to secure over 1 billion global streams and over 340 million video views, while Zucker simultaneously sold out stages across North America, Europe and Southeast Asia throughout the next year on his headlining world tour.
At the top of 2019, he linked with Chelsea Cutler and the EP brent was released, landing both of them on stage at Today Show. The project’s single “you were good to me” is Certified Platinum with nearly 300 million streams on Spotify, and it became the setup for his debut album which would release just about a year later, on April 17, 2020. The album’s lead single, “not ur friend,” reflects on removing toxic relationships from one’s life. Co-penned by Max Martin’s MXM (and Zucker) and produced by Zucker, the song is rhythmic and catchy though laden with underlying meanings. The remainder of the project is entirely written and produced by Zucker, including the first single, “always, i’ll care,” which is a platonic love song about friends sticking around even when he isn’t able to give the same energy to that relationship with his life changing and career building. Other album cuts like “full stop” are the antithesis to the lead single, as Zucker contemplates regret for cutting people out because the end result is solitude.
In the middle of the global pandemic in late 2020, Zucker and Chelsea Cutler safely returned to the Connecticut cabin where they crafted the first brent EP to write, record and produce five new songs that continue the brent story. brent ii was released on February 5, 2021 and features the singles “this is how you fall in love" and “emily” which they performed on The Today Show and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, respectively. He followed up with his sophomore release CRUSHER on October 1, 2021 which introduced a new sound and energy with major singles like "18", "Therapist", and "HONEST". Shortly after he embarked on the first leg of the MORE NOISE !!!! Tour across North America with sold out shows at Terminal 5 (NYC), The Novo (LA), and many more, and will taking the tour across the rest of the world throughout 2022.
