Music career[edit]

Jeremy Carr’s success began in 2007 after the release of two singles, "Turn The Lights Off" and "Physical Attraction,” with DJ Jose. Both tracks became Top 40 Pop Hits in the Netherlands.[1] Jeremy’s next single with Ercola and Heikki L,"Deep At Night," was released in the United States by Nervous Records where it became a Billboard Top 10 Hot Dance Airplay hit.[2] The song was also a Global Dance Top 40 hit on the Billboard charts. "Deep At Night" was nominated for "Best Progressive House/Trance Track" at the Dance Music Awards in Miami, Florida.[3] Jeremy’s next single, DJ Pearl and Last Vegas’ "Sexy Girl," received massive support and hit the top 40 in Spain, Greece, Egypt. Jeremy performed “Sexy Girl” as the headliner at the 2010 Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup Celebration Party on the Nile River. During this time Jeremy also collaborated with Austin Leeds and Avicii on “In The Air,” released by Ultra Records.[4]

Early in 2010, Jeremy began a collaboration with DJ and producer Kato. Connecting after the success of Kato’s cover of "Turn the Lights Off," Jeremy wrote and performed “Celebrate Life”[5] and “Happiness” off of Kato’s sophomore album, Discolized 2.0. The album released on Disco: Wax, went platinum within weeks, and won the Danish Music Award for Best Dance Album. The single “Celebrate Life” reached #9 on the Danish Top 40 Pop Singles Chart and #1 on the Danish Dance Chart. "Happiness" reached #13 on the Danish Dance Chart.

Jeremy made a number of trips back to Scandinavia during that summer where he performed live with Kato in Denmark and Sweden as well as appearing on radio shows including Radio ABC, NRJ and VOICE. Kato’s next release (as Vittrup),“Live Forever,” became another top 40 hit, peaking at #19 on Top 40 Pop charts in Denmark.[6] The Pop success of "Live Forever" and "Celebrate Life" led to Jeremy's summer 2012 tour with Kato throughout Denmark with further dates in Bulgaria and Turkey.[7]

On May 8, 2012 Stadiumred, Kontor Records and Houseworks released "Just One Breath"[8] which was Jeremy Carr's first solo project in EDM. The music video, which featured Mexican actress and model Fernanda Romero, was added to both MTV[9] and VH1[10] in the United States and Europe. That same year Jeremy worked with The Disco Fries and Hyper Crush on “Heartbeat” which was featured in the Universal Pictures release, American Reunion; the eighth installment in the American Pie series.[11]

Collaborations[edit]

In 2009, Jeremy participated in the Donny Goines hip hop album, The Breakfast Club, with a feature on "Grateful.”[12] The album also featured production from Apple Juice Kid, 6th Sense, Cookin' Soul, Frequency, and The Government.

Also in 2009, Jeremy participated in the creation of the album Attack of the Awesome with pop punk band, Patent Pending. Jeremy was featured on "Anti-Everything.”[13]

Jeremy contributed two songs on famed author Christina Crawford's one woman stage show "Surviving Mommie Dearest."

In the summer of 2014, Jeremy collaborated with actress/singer Taryn Manning (Orange Is The New Black) and producer D-Felic on the track "I Never Said."
