Jeremy Cunningham is a drummer, composer, and improviser. Originally from Cincinnati, he moved to Chicago in 2009, where he currently performs and composes as part of the city’s vibrant music scene. Cunningham wrote 2020’s ‘The Weather Up There’ in response to the loss of his brother Andrew, who died in a home invasion robbery in 2008. Co-produced by Jeff Parker and
Paul Bryan, this new work confronts the tragedy of gun violence and examines the acute ripple effect on several people’s lives through the lens of memory, response, and collage.
Further deepening the textural and emotive impact, Cunningham formed a “drum choir” for these recordings, comprised of close friends and colleagues Mike Reed, Makaya McCraven, and Mikel Patrick Avery. Cunningham currently plays performs with Resavoir, Trio Vibes, Lane Beckstrom Nick Mazzarella’s Meridian Trio, Laurenzi/Cunningham Duo, the Matt Gold Trio, and his own band The Weather Up There featuring Jeff Parker, Josh Johnson, and Paul Bryan.
