San Francisco native Jeremy Passion has a voice that simply must be heard and a heart that overflows with pure emotion. Heralded as one of the pioneers for the bringing R&B and soul genres to the internet, Passion became one of the first Asian-American musicians to go viral online upon posting content to his personal YouTube page.
A self-taught musician, Passion developed a fan base as he showcased his earnest covers and thoughtful original material on his channel. In 2011 he released his debut LP More Than A Feeling, followed shortly thereafter by his Pixelated EP. As he has continued to develop a following, the Cali crooner has collaborated with fellow YouTube powerhouses such as Tori Kelly to create moving and soulful music.
As we move into 2016 Jeremy Passion is looking forward to releasing his second studio album with the help of his nearly 300K subscribers. Crowd-funding the project on KickStarter, Passion was able to raise more than $20,000 to help fund the project, which is set for a release sometime mid-2016. In an effort to kick things off, the artist has released the project's lead single "We Can" to give fans a taste of what to expect later this year!
"We Can" is a laid back ode on which Jeremy Passion seduces a lover with the opportunity to travel and explore the world with him. Recognizing that Los Angeles is the "place to be" Passion still welcomes his lover on an international journey over a tightly produced, soulful instrumentation complete with floating synth and finger snaps. Passion's voice croons earnestly across the production, seducing with the possibility of new adventures and togetherness.
"Prepare for lift off, this is our time" he proclaims on the track's bridge before flying into the stratosphere on the sheer power of his love.
