Originally from Ottawa, Jeremy Gara has been a member of Arcade Fire since 2004. In the past years he has spent his energies outside of the band collaborating with a wide variety of artists: bandmates Sarah Neufeld, Will Butler, Tim Kingsbury, as well as other artists such as Michael Feuerstack, Susanna Wallumrød, Owen Pallett, and Nedelle Torrisi to name a few. He’s also been seen filling in occasionally for Fred Armisen playing drums in the 8G Band on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Most recently he produced and released his first solo album, Limn, a melodic dense and noisy ambient record; a collection of organized improvisations of solo creative moments in response to familiar collaborative efforts. Jeremy has been performing some of this material live in the last months, along with improvised visual elements, in a variety of environments.
