Best Local Musician Made Good (2013)

Jeremy Messersmith

One of the quirkiest and most clever songwriters to reside in the Twin Cities is Jeremy Messersmith. Renowned for his unorthodox touring methods — supper-club-style house shows have become his trademark for spreading his jaunty melodies across the land — Messersmith is getting a major boost for his follow-up to 2010's The Reluctant Graveyard via his recent signing to Glassnote Records. Mumford & Sons and Phoenix are two acts who have released material via the New York-based label in recent years, and this new partnership sounds like a healthy one for the uncompromising Messersmith. The resulting album is expected to arrive later this year.
