Jeremy Wakefield

stg, voc,
World and Folk

"Jeremy Wakefield is more like Speedy West fused with Jerry Byrd. And a little bit of Noel Boggs.” Those are the words used by Wayne Hancock to describe Jeremy Wakefield’s playing, and he isn’t far from the truth. Throw in a big dash of Joaquin Murphey and Jeremy’s own unique sensibilities and you’ve got one of the world’s best non-pedal steel guitarists. http://www.mikeneer.com/lapsteelin/2011/09/16/conversation-with-jeremy-wakefield-part-1/ Wakefield’s musical contributions to the SpongeBob television show have earned him a reputation for upholding an older analog “vintage” sound, thus it is especially intriguing to learn that some of Wakefield’s earliest album credits would include digital keyboard sequencing for The Style Council, of all people, on 1985’s “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” EP. Wakefield would continue to work with The Style Council over the next 20 years or so. other Albums on which Jeremy Wakefield plays steel guitar Wayne Hancock A-Town Blues 2001 The Lucky Stars Stay Out with The Lucky Stars 2005 The Bonebrake Syncopators That Da Da Strain 2008 Tracks on which Jeremy Wakefield plays steel guitar “Feathered Friends” from Hot Charity Rocket from the Crypt 1995 “Sweet Jennie Lee!” from Swingin’ Stampede The Hot Club of Cowtown 1998 “Took Hold of a Gypsy” from In the Land of Dreams Stanley Smith 2002
