Carlos Eduardo Lopez Avila (London, September 19, 1973) is a Venezuelan singer and songwriter, better known as Jeremias. His songs include a wide spectrum of genres, including pop, ballads and tropical music; all infused with romantic lyric that reflect human emotions, Latino culture and love.[1][2]

Biography[edit]

Jeremías was born in London, where his parents were studying, and moved with his family to Venezuela when he was just two-years-old. He grew up moving around some of the country's biggest cities, including Caracas, Maracay, and Puerto Ordaz. At 7, Jeremias started collecting music, while learning to play the guitar.

Literature was his chosen career path with the onslaught of college, but he switched his major halfway through college to Psychology, but finally settled on his life's greatest vocation: music.

Songwriting allows Jeremias to fuse his lyricism capabilities he discovered in Literature, with the understanding of the dynamics of human behavior and emotions he delved into, while studying psychology. You can see this concert of insight in his songs, which talk about infidelity and the hardships immigrants face. Yet the songs are simple, mainstream and resonate with audiences.[3]

Professional Life

His career ensued at the age of 23. Dead set on songwriting exclusively, Jeremias began recording demos to show to record label and music executives in the hopes of selling songs. Instead he showcased his vocals so well that they recommended he sing his own songs.

The song "Poco a Poco"[6] became a record-breaking single chosen as the main soundtrack for a popular Venezuelan soap opera, Mi Gorda Bella.[7][8]

In 2005 he settled in Miami, and in 2006 released Ese Que Va Por Ahí,[9] an album with both critical acclaim and resounding success in the United States, Latin America and Puerto Rico. That same year Jeremias was the only Latino artist ranked among Billboard Magazine's coveted "Who's Hot" list. The songs "Uno y uno es igual a tres"[10] and "Hay un amor afuera"[11] reached the top of Latin play list charts in both the US and Latin America.[12]

In 2008 he recorded his third album Un día más en el gran circo, and the album's singles "El comienzo del final" and "Tú" rank number one on Latin music charts. The songs music videos garner equal success, with top-rotating music videos on HTV.[13] The album earned him a Grammy nomination[14] for Best Male Pop Album, and he closed the award show with a performance along Juanes, Belinda, Rosario, Pedro Carmona and Tommy Torres.[15][16]
