Jeremy Enigk

Enigk's biggest claim to fame is his involvement with rock band Sunny Day Real Estate (SDRE), who released five albums from 1994 to 2000, in which he served as lead singer, co-songwriter and guitarist. During that band's first break-up (spanning 1995-97), Enigk released the 1996 solo album, Return of the Frog Queen. Enigk's religious convictions (he became a devout Christian in the mid-1990s[1]) were rumored to have been the catalyst for SDRE's breakup(s).

Enigk's religious convictions (he became a devout Christian in the mid-1990s[1]) were rumored to have been the catalyst for SDRE's breakup(s). There was an aborted attempt to record a second Sub Pop album, a follow-up to Return of the Frog Queen as Enigk explains, "We started a 2nd solo record and actually recorded one song with Anita (Perkins) and some of the other string players. That was the first attempt that I ever had at completely writing all the music myself, without Mark Nichols who did Return of the Frog Queen with me. But that was the only song. And then, shortly after that Sunny Day got back together, and all my songs that were meant to be for a solo record were moved to Sunny Day Real Estate. Some of the songs on How It Feels actually." He has more recently fronted the band The Fire Theft, whose lineup and sound is very similar to that of Sunny Day Real Estate. « hide
