"Just a pile of dirt and memories".
This line, gently lifted from Jeromy's as-yet-to-be-recorded autobiographical song "The Mississippi", deftly depicts his childhood home - a trailer park in Ames, IA - demolished years ago to pave way for new condominiums. Only fond memories fill the otherwise dreary surroundings of his childhood: feral cats, violent neighbors and a makeshift junkyard the kids used as a playground. Too young to understand poverty, but old enough to understand love, Jeromy would find safety and solace in the arms of his parents, Mark and Kathy Darling. Fast forward some 25 years and things are much different: he's celebrating over 10 years of marriage to his high school sweetheart Gretchen and they're relishing the wonderful little gifts that their sons Wyatt (born Oct. '09) and Wilder ('12) continue to pour into their lives.
After witnessing his younger sister overcome a brutal illness that nearly took her life on 3 occasions between 2003 and 2009, Jeromy has a new lease on life, a stronger resolve and renewed faith.

Covering most of the midwest
My dad mostly, but I love U2, John Prine, Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Townes Van Zant, Gram Parsons and David Wilcox
Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, piano, cigar box guitar, tenor banjo, loads of weird effects pedals and random synths/drum machine.
Id rather be known as a great husband and a great father than a great musician. Ive been married for over 10 years now and have 2 wonderful little boys Wyatt (3) and Wilder (5 1/2 months). Thats the most satisfying part of my life
