Jeremy Buck created the “Rock for Tots” Charity Concert back in 2005 out of the desire to bring people together to try and make a difference for the community and create a greater good. The recipe was simple, gather as many talented musicians and bands as you could find, invite all of your friends and fans, and then have everyone bring an unwrapped Toy to donate to charity so that some little child somewhere will receive a little gift that will shine a little light of hope in their lives for the holidays. After 15 years, thousands of toys and cash donations later, the same desire still exists. Perhaps now more than ever due to the unfortunate health crises that we are enduring via the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many families struggling just to pay rent and put food on the table. This year’s Rock for Tots event will obviously be different than those of the past, but the message is still the same… Let us all come together, play some music and make a difference for someone in need.
Jeremy was born in Indiana, and has been calling LA home for the past 20 years. He is celebrating this new era of artistic emancipation with a series of singles, including the imaginatively arranged, infectiously catchy sing-along, Don’t Look Down. Previously, Jeremy has released 6 albums — 3 as a solo artist — 1 EP, and 9 singles. Select career highlights along the way include working with a legendary rhythm section, consisting of drummer Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Duran Duran etc.) and bassist Rhonda Smith, (Prince, Jeff Beck) for his recently-released single, “All for You”; playing well over a 1,000 shows, including touring Japan; working with producers/engineers Kevin “The Caveman” Shirley (Joe Bonamassa , Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith) and Grammy-winner Sadaharu Yagi (Shania Twain, John Mayall, and Marc Anthony); and one of his videos accruing 17 million views on Facebook and earning a feature on the TV show Good Morning LA. Jeremy’s songs have been licensed to major network TV shows, indie films and international commercials. In addition, he has performed on live TV as a sideman alongside Morris Day and Snoop Dogg on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE, playing keyboards and singing backup vocals.
