Jeremy Facknitz Premieres Video for “As Of This Morning”
Indie songwriter Jeremy Facknitz has been entertaining audiences with his lovingly crafted music and high-energy performances for over a quarter century. Since the 2002 break-up of his Detroit-based band “The Ottomans” (they earned a 2001 Detroit Music Award for Best New Alternative Band, beating out “The White Stripes”), Jeremy has performed primarily as a solo act, marrying folk-rock and jazz stylings to showcase his intimate stories of life, love, and self-discovery.
Today, Jeremy is offering a taste from his forthcoming album Smilin’ At The Future (out March 31), with the first single “As of This Morning”, a 70s-inspired rocker using Eagles-esque guitar tones to recall that moment of awakening in a relationship that it might be time to move on. Aiming for a positive-vibe amid a typically sad subject, Facknitz says, “It’s the simplest song on the album, the most countrified, and still one of my favorites.”
