I'm Jeremy Loops, a musician based In Cape Town, South Africa. I enjoy all genres of music, but my first love is folk. Live, I perform with a loop pedal, layering tunes like a one man band. Frequently, brilliant collaborators join me on stage to take my sound to the next level.

I call myself a modern folk artist. My influences are folk legends like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, but what I create is a mash-up of a number of genres, namely folk, reggae, hip-hop, gypsy-jazz…. whatever keeps me smiling really.
I don’t believe in boundaries.
And now, our long-awaited debut album, ‘Trading Change’ is out on iTunes South Africa! Pre-order now at iTunes South Africa.
I make music that inspires and motivates me. It’s both my place of refuge and my source of courage to tackle this beautiful, often crazy world we live in. I’ve been gifted with an amazing, dedicated community of listeners who resonate deeply with this vision, and all the work I put in, I do so for them.
When I’m not making songs, I help run GreenPop.
I believe music, like all art, is a visual/audible representation of humanity. And humanity is community. In Africa, we call this concept Ubuntu.
In this way, while the music I make is my own, on stage I collaborate closely with rapper Motheo Moleko and saxophonist Jamie Faull, while behind the scenes there’s a team tirelessly working to make this dream a reality.
