ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jeromy Acton was born in August of 1972 in Lansing, MI. He grew up in Houston, Texas, and did his undergraduate in English at the University of Texas at Austin. Although he had been constantly involved in music growing up- at church, school, with friends and family- it was not until his freshman year in college that the chords/lyrics on the cover of Billy Crockett's "The Basic Stuff" album peaked his curiosity to begin seriously learning to play the guitar. When his family moved to Nagoya, Japan in 1991, he went with them and while living there/going to school, he wrote his first song: "Peace Be Still." It was all downhill from there! (Mainly because his family at the time lived up on a hill...)

Back in the States a year later, Jeromy took three more years to finish his degree, and during that time had many opportunities to be part of the awesome Christian music community in Austin, TX- UBC, BYX, CBS, EVFree, and many other wonderful, easily-abbreviated ministries! When he graduated, he spent a mandatory year wandering in the wilderness as a waiter before responding to God's calling on his life to be a musician... and to get braces... and to have a pony-tail... and to drive a mini-van...

Three years later, sans braces, pony-tail and mini-van, he graduated from the music school at UT with a degree in voice. Life exploded from there: he was married several months later to the beautiful Cathia Patricia Elizabeth Jaramillo, took over an interim youth position at EVFree Austin, and continued to do music wherever he could. Six months later, Jeromy and Cathia(Patty) were in Mammoth Lakes, California, where Jeromy took a job as the worship/youth pastor of Grace Community Church.

After three years of being blessed to serve the people of Mammoth, through the encouragement and help of Patty/Mom and Dad Acton/Amanda/GCC/the musical community in Mammoth, Jeromy was finally able to realize his dream of 10+ years of recording a CD of original music: "Quorum." "Quorum" is a testimony to God's faithfulness in being present and active in the lives of his people when they come together in his name- "two or more..." as it says in Matthew 18:20. A bio on Jeromy would not be complete without including the Thankyou's from the album notes, so they are concluded at the end of this bio. Thanks for taking the time to read about this one humble musican's musical journey! Enjoy the CD!

Outstanding debut!
QUORUM is a truly inspiring CD! Not only is Jeromy's tremendous musical talent evident throughout the album, but even more impressive is his songwriting ability. Each piece is unique, musically speaking, the lyrics are a real blessing, each track is beautifully mastered, and Gary Myers' 12-string backgrounds are utterly awe-inspiring. I'm looking forward to more from Jeromy Acton - a exceptionally gifted artist. QUORUM is a "must-have" for any Christian music collection!

It's is a Wonderful CD Jeromy
Good job Jeromy. I love your CD. It is my favorite. I don't even take it out of my CD player. Your an awsome musician, and I can't wait until you come out with another CD. I hope that your next CD is just as good, if not better. That would be hard to do though!!!

Derick Thompson

a great first step into the music biz
This disc has all the flavor of good Christian folk music these days. Inspiring lyrics with good music mix together in a cohesive album. Glad to see Jeromy get his feet wet in the recording scene. Look forward to hearing Quorum's follow up disc.

Feels good!
I'll buy it! Guitar picking is lovely, arrangements are sweet and tasteful, and your voice charms as always . . . especially on those 3/4 and 6/8 numbers. Patty's BGVs and flute multiply the rich texture exponentially. Rating is 4 'cos you certainly want your 2nd album to be twice as excellent! Quorum is advertised on JoleyGigs.
