The EP, the product of Jeremy using time locked down at home after years of extensive touring, sees the singer-songwriter and producer deliver an adventurous, creative body of work unlike anything he’s released prior.


‘I remember at the start of the pandemic last year feeling frustrated. I had my album nearly finished and a huge tour in support of it in the works and then boom. Just stuck at home,’ Jeremy Loops explains. ‘Once that sinking feeling of my plans getting screwed cleared, I saw an opportunity. I asked myself what type of music I’d want to make given there was no pressure or expectations or even a tour, and especially because I knew we’d push my full-length album back.’

The lead single This Town, an anthemic track featuring the legendary Ladysmith Black Mambazo, was the first release to come from this approach. ‘I just took a leap of faith and asked them and they were so gracious and receptive’, explains Jeremy. ‘And I’ve always wanted to release a pure acoustic song with just vocals and guitar, zero other instruments, and we did that.’ He adds. ‘And I’ve also always wanted to flip the model of releasing a studio version of a song first by releasing its acoustic version. You don’t get to do stuff like this with an album, but an EP? There are no rules.’


Jeremy Loops says Souvenirs is a catch all term for the collection of memories and experiences he’s had while writing this EP. ‘For me, this EP is equal parts play and meditation. Mirror-like, but also a seminal and special time for me as a songwriter making music at a time the world stood dead still.’
