Jeremy Warmsley is an eclectic composer, songwriter and performing artist from London.

In 2005, aged 22, he signed to Transgressive Records (Foals, Flume, SOPHIE), with whom he released two albums of eclectic folktronica-inspired songs. He recorded with Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Bjork) and toured with the Shins and Regina Spektor, but a highlight of that period was performing with the legendary Daniel Johnston, accompanying him on some of his most beloved songs at the Brixton Windmill.

In 2009, he formed the indie-pop nostalgia duo Summer Camp with his current (lol) wife Elizabeth Sankey. Since then they have released five albums on Moshi Moshi, played shows with Robyn, Wild Beasts, Metronomy and HAIM, and recorded with legendary producers Stephen Street (Smiths, Blur) and Steve Mackey (Pulp, Arcade Fire, MIA) - all of which paled in comparison to the auspicious day they were featured on one of Tyler, The Creator’s mixtapes.

In 2015, Summer Camp scored the independent film BEYOND CLUELESS. Jeremy went on to collaborate with that film's director, Charlie Shackleton (AKA Charlie Lyne) on many projects including BBC's FEAR ITSELF and the award-winning FISH STORY. (Charlie sadly didn’t need any music for his infamous, BBFC-baiting Paint Drying film.) In 2016, he was thrilled to work with comedian Simon Amstell on his debut feature CARNAGE - which included sitting with Simon at his piano and composing an emotional Kate Bush-inspired ballad from the perspective of a suicidal cow. He has also created many soundtracks for other films, TV shows, videogames and podcasts

In 2018, he made his return to singing and performing under his own name with his single, ‘Moment’, written for the BBC/Netflix series WANDERLUST. He was very touched by the reaction and support ‘Moment’ received, from both the public and the likes of BBC 6 Music and The Guardian.

So, buoyed by the release of that song, he continued to make solo music in 2019 with his new album/project 'A Year'. He wrote and released a new song every month to create a song cycle album that takes the listener from season to season, telling stories and creating sonic worlds along the way. The first track, ‘January’, received a coveted playlist spot on BBC 6 Music. Other tracks were well-received with spot plays from 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe & Maconie, Tom Robinson and Chris Hawkins, and Radio X’s John Kennedy, and placements on Spotify & Apple Music playlists “Sad Indie”, “Into The Woods” and “Breaking Singer-Songwriter”.

2019 also saw release of his next film score, and collaboration with Summer Camp’s Elizabeth Sankey: her debut feature film, Romantic Comedy, which Jeremy co-produced. A documentary & film essay about this most misunderstood genre, it was accompanied by a new Summer Camp LP featuring “songs from and inspired by the motion picture”, in classic 90s Rom-Com style, as well as moments from his gorgeous, dreamy score. The band went on permanent hiatus over pandemic, but Jeremy and Elizabeth continue to work together on her films, and on raising their tiny son.

In 2022, he released his fourth album, American Daydream, a concept album of original songs about the life and music of the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson. Jeremy continues to score films, TV, and podcasts, most recently, BBC1’s hit comedy POWER OF PARKER starring Conleth Hill, BBC Sound’s hit true crime podcast BELIEVE IN MAGIC, Elizabeth Sankey’s feminist doc BOOBS for Channel 4, and the theme song to beloved Ceebeebies show LOVE MONSTER). He has also been writing and producing with other artists including Katie Melua, Zoee and Lexabug.
