Music has been at the heart of Jeremy Bosch’s life for as long as he can remember. As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, he played percussion and sang at his local church, while his family raised him on a diverse melee of classics by legends such as Barry White, Earth Wind & Fire, Miles Davis, Hector Lavoe, Chicago and Tony Bennett, to name a few. It didn’t take long for his musical talent to manifest: at the young age of 15, the prodigy received a full scholarship to a summer performance program at Berklee’s College of Music, an honor he was awarded again and again into his late teens.
It was during these formative years that Bosch had his first professional experience as an artist, playing alongside Puerto Rican percussionist legend Giovanni Hidalgo and his All Star Band. Suddenly, Bosch knew he was destined for a career in music.
It’s been a long and transformative road since Bosch’s summers at Berklee. He has performed across the globe at concerts and festivals in Europe, South America, North America and the Caribbean. Most recently, DeJesus had the honor of performing as a band leader at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. He also performed alongside Grammy Award winner Sergio George and the Salsa Giants in New York City’s legendary Madison Square Garden.
As an artist, Bosch has grown to find inspiration not just in fellow musicians, but also in luminaries from a wide range of artistic paths and disciplines. From actors and actresses to writers and athletes, Bosch maintains that a powerful work ethic and dedication to one’s passion is the true source of his artistic influence.
After all, the title Bosch holds goes far beyond that of ‘musician.’ A classically trained composer and forward-thinking visionary, he strives to produce music that can be experienced by all the senses.
“Lately I’ve been trying to make my music as visual as possible. Trying to have people see through the lens of my lyrics and music the setting, the colors, the people, the entire landscape, as well as the emotions that accompany these things: the heartache, the euphoria, the nostalgia, the humor etc.”
The journey of an artist isn’t always easy – it takes great discipline, consistency, dedication and sacrifice to reap satisfaction and success…and Bosch wouldn’t have it any other way. A firm believer in art’s ability to heal and unite through creative growth, Bosch’s greatest aspiration is to be heard around the world as a source of inspiration and promoter of progress.
“What I want my listeners to receive from my music is renewed Hope. Hope for the industry, hope in their daily lives, hope in their families, in their homes, for their future, for their destinies. Hope.”
