The warm, cozy environment of Callaghan’s has made it a choice listening room environment for many acoustically-minded singer/songwriters. Oh, Jeremiah can certainly take advantage of the room and provide a memorable performance with beautiful clarity. Oh, Jeremiah is actually Jeremiah Stricklin and he fills his set with “musings and tall tales.” Pulling muses from Ryan Adams and Josh Ritter, Stricklin has a talent for translating life stories into Americana treasures. His charismatic live performances can take the songs farther.
The Callaghan’s crowd will be sampling songs from Oh, Jeremiah’s latest release “Tall Tales & Tiny Fables,” which showcases Stricklin’s versatile songwriting philosophies. Throughout the album, he maintains a homespun vibe inundated with modern influences. The album’s second track, “Circles,” is a rolling folk ballad. Stricklin smartly contrasts with a strongly poignant song called “Happy Now.”
