Jeremy Schonfeld

JEREMY SCHONFELD is a singer/songwriter/composer/lyricist. Current projects include a new studio album, Iron and Coal, being recorded in Vienna; and the commission and development of the new musical, Kissing Frogs, written with Nicole Parker (MADtv) inspired by Schonfeld’s song “Greta” from the album 37 Notebooks. A developmental workshop production of Kissing Frogs will be produced February 2011 as the first ever co-production between Bloomington Playwrights Project and Indiana University.

Other recent theatrical projects include the holiday musical It Happened One Christmas for the Flat Rock Playhouse in North Carolina, and Drift, from the concept album of the same name.

The 2009 production of Drift at North Carolina’s “Hot Summer Nights at the Kennedy” garnered Schonfeld several “Best of …” honors including “Best Show of 2009” from Triangle Arts & Entertainment, and “Best Original Music” from Indy Week. Of the production, critics praised “Schonfeld's courageous rock and soulful song-cycle sensitively articulated a series of moments in a divorce, largely from the husband's point of view … a prismatic set of rocking, thoughtful, raging, aching – but ultimately joyous – confessions. Four Stars.” (Indy Week). Drift was previously presented as a benefit concert at BB Kings in New York City starring Adam Pascal, Julia Murney, Terrence Mann, Jarrod Emick, and Adam Kantor, among others; and as part of the 2006 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF). A Kansas City production of Drift is scheduled for September 2011.

Other recent projects include: the album 37 Notebooks, which featured the vocal talents of Shoshana Bean, Tracie Thoms, Amy Spanger, Lauren Kennedy, Luther Creek, and Kate Shindle, among others; the feature film Clear Blue Tuesday; as well as the musicals Home and innumerable ATrainPlays; and the Broadway Dreams Foundation’s “Broadway Bootcamp,” for which Jeremy serves on the Board of Advisors and as Musical Director.

Schonfeld has also contributed original music for numerous benefit concerts including “Defying Inequality,” “Broadway in South Africa,” “The Pink Campaign on Broadway,” and “Broadway for a New America,” among others. He has been the featured composer for “Monday Night, New Voices” and “Cutting Edge Composers II.” Jeremy’s recording, “Song for New Orleans,” featuring Adam Pascal, is currently being used as part of a recruitment video for the American Red Cross.

Recent and upcoming performances in New York include Madison Square Garden, Birdland, Joe’s Pub, BB Kings, The Public Theatre, Symphony Space, and Lincoln Center; the Upright Cabaret in Los Angeles; the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta; and in Boston as part of Boston University’s “BU on Broadway” series.

Jeremy lives in Brooklyn with his Kiwi wife Sarah-Jane, sassy daughter Alexandra, and hyper dog Byron.
