Jeremy Octavius Esposito was born October 8, 1972 and raised in the small town of Oxford Connecticut. By the age of 2, Jeremy already showed great interest in music. His father's record and reel-to-reel collection exposed him to fundamental rock and roll bands such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Roxy Music and Traffic. Jeremy played along to the music using wooden spoons and empty cans arranged in a drumset pattern. Soon, Jeremy had his own record player (lest any more of his father's turntable needles get destroyed). Jeremy's first record was "The Yes Album".

When Jeremy was 6 years old, his father bought him his first practice pad and sticks. Jeremy kept time and beat to his favorite band, KISS. Jeremy's uncle, a musician and recording engineer, taught him his first drum beat to ZZ Top's "Nation Wide" on the studio drumset. Soon, Uncle Mike gifted Jeremy a four piece practice pad set allowing Jeremy to advance skills by playing along to his burgeoning record collection which included such 70's rock and roll favorites as: Yes, Deep Purple, the J. Giels Band, and the aforementioned KISS.

By age 8, while still rooted in rock, his interest in bands was becoming more progressive. He began to learn the beats and fills Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Rush, Bebop Deluxe, Brand X, Frank Zappa and many more.

When Jeremy was 9 years old, MTV entered his living room. Jeremy honed his skills by playing along with the music videos of The Buggles (Video Killed the Radio Star), David Bowie, Rush, The Cars and everything else which came in on that wave.

Jeremy's rebellious early teenage years were marked by intrigue with the technicality of Heavy Metal. He and his accomplices collaborate to mimic tunes by Metallica, Iron Maiden, and more gruesome stuff.

While in high school, Jeremy made his first live performance in concert at "The Strand" in Seymour, Connecticut. His video-taped drum solo remains part of his present media collection. At this time, Jeremy began to develop an appreciation for Jazz which ultimately brought him to Boston and the Berklee College of Music. While attending Berklee, Jeremy landed his first professional gig with The Standing Hamptons. He played 6 nights a week in the Boston and Cape Cod area.

Next, Jeremy joined The Candles which maintained a 5 night a week schedule.

Whether because of or in spite of such a schedule, Jeremy graduated Berklee College of Music in 1996.

After Graduating Berklee, Jeremy joined The Knot (formerly Slipknot) which maintained a 2-3 night a week schedule.

By age 27, Jeremy's strong interest in Jazz and a developed appreciation for Funk make joining Hipology a weekend dream gig even if it meant driving to the southern New Hampshire area where the band enjoys its most devout following.

Ten years of playing improvisational Rock and Jazz has well prepared Jeremy for Sun Jones. (Special thanks to the late Kevin Molloy for writing my bio.)
