Jeremy Lloyd-Styles Gives Us The Perfect Gift

Welcome to today’s chat with Jeremy Lloyd-Styles, a Brooklyn-based indie rocker who’s just dropped a sweet new album straight out of his home studio. He made it as a gift for his wife, celebrating a decade of marriage—a real touching gesture.

Jeremy’s tunes have this dreamy vibe, kinda like they’re speaking to your soul. He’s been soaking up inspiration from all over, from his days singing in church to jam sessions with family.

Growing up, Jeremy got hooked on music from watching MTV and flipping through music mags. It all felt so cool, you know? And that noise from his first concert, it blew his mind—he wanted to make that kind of noise too.

Nowadays, Jeremy’s not just about music. He’s into VFX and writing scripts, all while being a family guy. But it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. He’s faced his fair share of hurdles in the music biz, dealing with stuff like racism and sexism.

But despite the challenges, Jeremy’s staying true to himself. He’s got big plans ahead, from writing more tunes to keeping his kid alive (which is always a priority!).

So, grab a seat and join us as we dive into Jeremy Lloyd-Styles’ world—his music, his struggles, and his hopes for the future. It’s gonna be a real chat, no fancy stuff—just two folks shooting the breeze about life, music, and everything in between.

What is your stage name
Jeremy Lloyd-Styles

Is there a story behind your stage name?
Just my government name

Where do you find inspiration?
Anywhere, really. Mostly from sounds outside.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
I mostly heard music at church or in the car with my mom. I was encouraged to sing solos, or join choirs in school.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
My mom and her sisters would sing harmonies, old church hymns, etc around the piano at family gatherings.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
Probably watching MTV got me jazzed for making music. Seeing that and all of the music magazines made everything look so cool.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
I was encouraged to play guitar. My cousin, who I thought was the coolest person played drums. He would hype up music to me and that pushed me. Then a friend of mine started getting better at guitar than me and that just wouldn’t do, so I started practicing, getting better and I loved writing songs. So basically my apparent childish need to be better than others spurred me on you get better.

My cousin, who I thought was the coolest person played drums.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
I saw the Winans (a gospel group from the 90s) play. The concert was so loud. I couldn’t believe humans could make that much noise. That people were ok with how loud it was. I wanted to be that loud.

How could you describe your music?
I’ve written all kinds of music. Since I’m not trying to market myself or fit into anything particular I’m just allowing myself to make what feels good. This particular exercise I wanted to just make a straight forward 90s kind of rock thing. So the EP sounds like it does from my love of 90s rock.

Describe your creative process.
I hear the cacophony of noises around me and for some reason I pick up melodies. I’m really driven by rhythm and whatever particular vibrations means me feel pleased.

What is your main inspiration?
Not sure! Whatever music I’m listening to.

What musician do you admire most and why?
Maybe Daryl Palumbo and Justin Beck of the band Glassjaw. They just keep trucking. They don’t care about timelines, they just want to make cool music. It was some interview with Daryl where he said just keep going. Just keep playing and two things will happen, you’ll get better and the people who started off with you and who aren’t in it for that long haul will drop off.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
I’ve tried aping so many different styles. I think I’ve pretty much made peace with the fact with what I make will always be a bastardized version of what I’m trying to copy. And I’m ok with that.

Who do you see as your main competitor?
The only person I want to be better than now is me yesterday.

What are your interests outside of music?
I work in VFX. I love film, writing scripts, eating and drinking with friends and spending time with my wife and kid.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
I’m doing it. I’m working in VFX and I guess would try and make some films.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
So many problems. But I’d say the racism, sexism, and age-ism. I could go on.

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
It’s a gift for my wife and has a meaning to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.

What are your plans for the coming months?
To keep working on the musical I was commissioned to write, make a new EP, write more scripts and keep my kid alive!

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans
The one I am working on with my friend Jocelyn. That above mentioned musical.

What message would you like to give to your fans?
Be patient. Make what you like. If you like it, you are a demographic and someone out there will like it. It may be a lot of people or very few, but it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be out there. Someone needs it, even if it’s just you.
