Words and Music by Jeremy Good
Sampling of work by Jeremy Good
"I've known Jeremy for more than a decade and brought him to Houston to work with me at a local church. He is one of the most gifted musicians in this town and one of the most loyal and devoted men I know. His character and his position as a man, a husband and father is inspiring to everyone around him. He carries himself with humility, dignity and integrity and I'm thankful to call him my friend."
- Wayne Watson, CCM Artist
"Jeremy is a bona fide pro. He possesses keen musical intuition and a technical prowess that makes working with him an absolute musical pleasure."
- John Calderon, guitarist for Al Jarreau
"Backstage at the symphony, the highest compliment we pay someone is: 'That’s just how it’s supposed to go!' I say the same of Jeremy whether he’s writing or performing. He plays with lush sound and impeccable musical timing, never anything out of place. He brings the same sensibility to our writing collaborations, wrapping a lyric in vivid tonal colors that perfectly amplify the emotional heart of a song."
- Alex Wenig, Houston Symphony, Freelance violinist
"One of the best things I can say about Jeremy is that I am CONSTANTLY giving out his name to people. Exceedingly talented, exceedingly professional, Jeremy is always a blast to work with!"
- David Ray Worship Pastor, Doorpost Songs
"Jeremy is not just a superb pianist, arranger, and producer, but he is also a stellar individual. There's no ego about him, which also happens to make him a wonderfully sensitive accompanist for a singer. I can always be at ease when Jeremy is at the helm."
- Sarah Fuselier, Singer
"Jeremy is a true legit musician who also knows how things should feel. As performer and producer, his taste and professionalism are of the highest order. He has proven his craft and sensibilities in the most demanding of environments while creative excellence and expertise characterize all he touches."
- Kris Becker
"Jeremy Good has taught one of my children for two years and the other for one. I am so pleased at how he takes an individual approach and tailors lessons for each child. I have been especially impressed with the way he piques their interests with song choices-- even encouraging songwriting-- as a way to teach theory. The fact that he takes my six-year-old's songs seriously means so much to me. I have seen a boost in her overall confidence this year as a result of Jeremy's encouragement. My son is learning his way around the piano in a way that will give him the tools to play whatever he chooses. My kids look forward to their piano lessons with Jeremy each week. We look forward to lessons next year and for years to come."
- Danielle Young, Caedmon's Call
"Jeremy Good is the REAL DEAL! A REAL musician…
a REAL professional and most importantly a REAL lover of God!"
- Larry Harrison, Worship Pastor,
"Jeremy Good is a great keyboardist, a tremendous asset to any band and a really cool guy. He doesn't just play keys, he knows what to play for the song. His original compositions and his arrangements are unique and very musical."
- Greg Davis, Sound Engineer, bassist
"I have worked with Jeremy Good for many years and have seen him involved in a full variety of styles, and play to those styles exceptionally well. He has a fine tuned ear for what works, and knows when to play, and how to play in many different scenarios. As a producer, he is great to work with as he brings a trust to the musicians he is producing, and allows for creativity, but listens for what is appealing in a song, and helps to lead those involved in the direction needed to make a project great. I look forward to working with him anytime I get the chance."
– John Stanley, Second Baptist Church (Houston, TX)
"I’ve been blessed to work with Jeremy in both the studio and live performances, and it’s always an extreme pleasure. He has the professionalism and musicality to make every situation run smoothly. I always look forward to receiving a call from him. Having him arrange, produce and perform your project is a wise decision indeed!"
- Rankin Peters, Bass
"When I produced my CD with Jeremy I already knew him as a fine musician, an insightful producer, a hard worker, a resourceful net-worker, and an inspiring person to be around. His skills and personality are exactly what I needed. Being a man of faith, I am committed to the idea that everything I produce is a reflection and a "thank you" to the One who gave me beauty and life. That is the bottom line reason for why I entrusted my project to Jeremy. I knew he'd know what to do and how to do it. And the bottom line result . . . he got it done."
- Kim Peterson, Woodwinds
Studying classical music as a kid stinks.
What seven year old would rather practice scales and etudes than be outside playing?
I'll never forget the day that I heard some jazz chords on the radio in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. "What is that? I want to play that, not the stuff I've been playing…." And so began my journey into the world of jazz and a lifetime of pursuing music.
And what a journey it's been so far. I liked those jazz chords so much that I completed jazz piano degrees at U. of South Carolina (1999 BM - jazz performance) and then another one at U. of South Florida (2003 MM - jazz performance) while working as a full time musician. I moved to Houston, TX in 2004 and have had the pleasure of working for a few churches while pursuing a ton of other creative musical endeavors (composition, arranging, production, pedagogy). Along with that brought the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians both locally and nationally. As much as I ask, they won't let me borrow their Grammys…. Oh - and I was fortunate enough to meet my wife, Ana, through this whole music thing. But that's another story for another day.
In 2011, I gladly accepted an opportunity to be the Worship Pastor at our home church (cornerstonecbc.org) and absolutely love it. Being at Cornerstone allows me the privilege of leading a great team in worship each week as well as the freedom to continue growing and developing as a musician in outside projects.
It's exciting to see what all may lie ahead on this journey!
I look forward to the possibilities that an all-loving, all-powerful God may continue to make possible.
