Jeremy McKinnon’s Bio
The rock musician was born Jeremy Wade McKinnon on December 17, 1985, in Gainesville, Florida. Of Italian and Irish descent, he was raised alongside 2 sisters.
Growing up as a very simple kid who listened to mostly country music, one wouldn’t have guessed Jeremy would be a rock musician. However, he had always loved music and he had all the talent to aspire to be one. Because of this, he started playing the guitar and writing songs since his high school days or even before.
McKinnon attended the North Marion High School where he was known as the kid who always got into one trouble or the other. As a result of this, he was grounded a lot, which gave him the opportunity to keep writing music.
The first band that he got to start his career with is All For Nothing. In 2003, he joined Tom Denney and Bobby Scruggs to found the band for which he will come to be known, A Day to Remember (ADTR). The band also had Neil Westfall and Joshua Woodard, all of whom were in different bands before they decided to join their forces into the new band.
In its early days, ADTR which was a local band from Ocala was caught between being a pop punk and a hardcore band, but it was able to bring together metalcore and pop punk to give something that fans have come to love.
Before too long, the band had already become a force to reckon with that by the time it released its first EP, Halos for Heroes, Dirt for the Dead in 2004, it quickly sold out at their live shows. Their first album And Their Name Was Treason was later released in 2005. In the years to come, Jeremy McKinnon will, together with the band, release other albums such as For Those Who Have Heart (2007), Homesick (2009) What Separates Me from You (2010), Common Courtesy (2013), and Bad Vibrations (2016).
While McKinnon has remained the lead vocalist of ADTR since it was formed, Bobby Scruggs and Tom Denney with whom the band was formed left in 2006 and 2009 respectively while Alex Shelnutt and Kevin Skaff joined to take their respective places.
Having made guest appearances in different albums, Jeremy has revealed that he has no plans for a solo album. Apart from being a singer, he formed a record label known as Running Man with Joshua Woodard.
A very hard working individual, Jeremy McKinnon, as stated, is not only a singer but also a producer who has worked with bands such as Wage War (Blueprints and Deadweight), Neck Deep (Life’s Not out to Get You), and The Ghost Inside (Get What You Give and Dear Youth) among others.
Thanks to that and other engagements, he has a net worth which has been estimated at over $2 million.
Wife and Daughter, Is Jeremy McKinnon Married?
Jeremy is a married man. He tied the knot in 2016 with Stephanie Morrison who had been his girlfriend for a long time before then. The interesting thing about their wedding was that it was a surprise wedding which held on Christmas day.
Before finally meeting and settling with his wife, he was once described by his friend as a hopeless romantic nerd who was always a nice guy and because of that, he was easily trampled over in relationships which always broke up.
In 2017, Stephanie took to her social media to announce that they were expecting their first child together. The child finally came in December of that year as Montana Nash McKinnon, a daughter.
