That year, Jeremy recorded a CD with smooth jazz group Emerge, on which he wrote the title track, “Inspiration.”  Jeremy has also played on the movie sound track for Yes Men, which can be seen in movie theaters nationwide. In 2011, Jeremy produced and released two CDs:  Alive and In hymn(s) we move.
