Son of composer Larry Lockwood and the grandson of the legendary Cantor Jacob Konigsberg, Jeremiah Lockwood began his musical career playing on the streets and subways of Manhattan performing with Piedmont Blues master Carolina Slim.

Jeremiah is the front man for The Sway Machinery, a band with a unique focus on mining atavisms and cultural memory to create new and exciting music.  On his new solo album, Kol Nidre, Jeremiah draws from the arcane and the earthy, the folkloric and the modernist, to make something that holds true to the beautiful shape-shifting of the Jewish sacred music tradition. He joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 10/05 at 9 pm for a special Days of Awe edition of Fog City Blues.
