Local singer-songwriter Jeremy Messersmith began recording his own work after auditing a songwriting course at North Central University in Minneapolis. He soon started playing shows locally and handing out demos of his work. Princess Records quickly signed him for his first full length album released in 2006 titled "The Alcatraz Kid."

Local producer and singer-songwriter, Dan Wilson soon became a huge fan calling Jeremy "one of the Twin Cities best new songwriters." Soon after, Dan offered to produce his second release titled "The Silver City," an ode to the Twin Cities. Jeremy is hard at work right now on his third album that he's hoping to record sometime this winter. This is Jeremy Messersmith's first apperence at The Current's state fair booth.

Songs performed: "Novacain," "Franklin Avenue," and "A Girl, a Boy, and a Graveyard."
