Colony presents Jeremy Torres
Jeremy Torres, born on the 3rd of August 1994, in Middletown, NY; just 40 minutes north of New York City, is 1 of 5 children. As a young boy Jeremy ran around the house “catching a vibe” to the music that his mother, Esther Luna, always played on the radio. At the tender age of 10 years old Jeremy lost his mother to Cancer. It was a devastating loss in his life at such a young age and it was soon later that Jeremy discovered his passion for writing as a therapeutic means of freeing his imagination. What began with poetry and short stories turned into songs. But Jeremy had desire for more. “If only I could play an instrument”, he wished.
That all changed when he reached High School and met fellow classmate, Emmanuel Escarraman, who shared Jeremy’s passion for music and movies. “Manny” knew how to play the guitar and is attributed for teaching Jeremy how to play the basics. By the age of 14, Jeremy was influenced by musicians such as Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and Prince to name a few. He stated “Watching them play live and free with no care in the world” is when he knew his desire to become a “rockstar” was born. He wanted to live his life playing music, writing songs and sharing it all with the world. It’s never been about the numbers for him but creating a huge musical family throughout a lifetime so his name lives forever.
