Jeremiah Lockwood

Jeremiah Lockwood’s music career began with over a decade of apprenticeship to the legendary Piedmont Blues musician Carolina Slim, playing in the subways of New York City. He also trained under his grandfather Cantor Jacob Konigsberg and performed in his choir. Jeremiah’s band The Sway Machinery seeks inspiration from diverse realms of experience related to the cultural geography of New York City. The Sway Machinery has played around the world, including stints at legendary music festivals like Montreal Jazz, Roskilde, and perhaps most notably, Festival au Desert in Timbuktu, Mali. Jeremiah completed his PhD in Ethnomusicology and Jewish Studies at Stanford University in 2021 and is currently a Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies. His first book, Golden Ages: Hasidic singers and cantorial revival in the digital era, was recently published by University of California Press.
