Interview with Jeremy McComb

Interview with Jeremy McComb

CL: I am Christian Lamitschka and today I present you Jeremy McComb. Jeremy welcome to the show.

JM: Hey, good to see you guys, thanks for having me.

CL: Jeremy, you’re well known here in the US, but, Europe might be hearing about you for the first time. Can you please introduce yourself and tell them who you are and what kind of music you are playing?

JM: Absolutely, I’m a country artist, grew up here in the Northwest out here in the good ol’ USA. Been in Nashville here for six years. I started off in radio doing the disc jockey thing and music director. Before I knew it, I was out on the road with Larry the Cable Guy and Blue Collar Comedy Tour doing their comedy stuff. I wrote a lot of stuff for Warner Brothers and that’s when I got my record deal. I worked on the record and it’s kind of an edgier side of the country stuff. Paul Riddle from the Marshall Tucker Band produced a record, I had three singles off of that. “This Town Needs A Bar” really did really well for us. Just releasing a brand new single called “Five To Midnight”, which I’m really excited about and just got done shooting a movie and have a lot of great stuff going on.

CL: Tell us a little bit more about the song.

JM: “Five To Midnight” is a brand new song written by Travis Howard, who’s had a lot of success with Miranda Lambert’s past records. It’s one of those songs when I first heard it, I just connected with it immediately. I write most of my stuff, but it was just this one where it kind of hit me. It’s kind of a second chance, trying to figure love out song like everybody else.

CL: You don’t walk around like typical country artist.

JM: No, the Fedora (hat) is a little different and curly hair; I can’t do much about that. My dad is a cowboy, like a real cowboy; he grew up on a ranch, the cowboy hat and all. I just never felt right about wearing one, ‘cause I’m more just kind of a hillbilly country kid than anything. I save the country hats for the real cowboys.

CL: Can you tell us a little bit about your experience you made since the time you were in the music business?

JM: Yea, you know it’s been a crazy ride, coming into town on the tour bus with Larry The Cable Guy; and going from holding comedian spit cups on red carpet events to coming to Nashville and doing my own record and touring on my own. You know making that jump from doing band tours with your band in a van to busses and going out and doing arenas with some of the bigger acts in country music. It’s been a blast and it’s been sort of those things where I always wanted to get to Europe, so I hope to get over there and play for some of the guys over there.

CL: There are Festival in Switzerland during Springtime, you probably have to go to, but I believe there are many female music fans who like to know if you are available or not.

JM: Well, I’m not married, so I guess that’s a good way to put it.

CL: But we are now smart not sharing your number. (laughing).

JM: Keep it a secret, I’m 30, just turned 30.

CL: But they can meet you on My Space or Facebook?

JM: Yea, Facebook.com/McCombover, which is one of my favorite things, but just go to www.jeremymccomb.com. Folks can also see the movie trailer for big Country bues at www.bigcountryblues.com.  

CL: Are you Tweeting too?

JM: Yea, I do the Twitter thing. I learned a couple of years ago I really didn’t know what a twitter thing was, so I had a 14 year old girl to show me how to use it. I’m getting pretty good at it.

CL: By the way, you were with this cable guy on the road, I believe he’s crazy. I met him one time, so I know how it is. Any good road stories?

JM: We’ve got a ton of them. I remember we were doing Blue Collar Two, the second Blue Collar movie in Denver, Colorado and we had a bunch of pop bottles on the bus, like Diet Coke bottles and one was full on the table, so I put it in the fridge, I was cleaning stuff up for after the show. One of the crew guys comes onto the bus and was like ‘I’m dying I need something to drink’, I said just grab the diet coke out of the fridge. He grabbed it, opened it, and took a drink. He spit it everywhere cause it’s was the cable guy’s chew spit, which I thought was the full diet coke. (laughing)
