Jeremiah Oliver is a self-taught pianist who began classical study at 12. Within a year, he had developed a great love for Chopin's works and an interest in composing. He launched his career behind the piano in 1996 with the church choir, soon after expanding to weddings, musicals, and jazz band. In high school, he learned French and German, and has since studied Latin, Ancient Greek, Italian, and Spanish. He took up the harp in college, and purchased a (now rare) Dusty Strings FH32 Lyptus.

In 2006, he graduated cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Music in Composition, having studied with Jarrad Powell, Janice Giteck, and Bern Herbolsheimer. While on exchange in Paris, spring of 2003, he wrote his first Comptine, a piece which really brought his voice to the piano, inspired by the music of Yann Tiersen. His original works have been premiered by Ancora (under the direction of Tess Orozco), Diverse Harmony, the Seattle Chamber Players, Seattle clarinetist Rosalyn DeRoos (a member of Choroloco), the Saint Helens String Quartet, and members of the West Seattle Community Orchestra.

Ensemble work has always inspired him; there's nothing quite like making art with others. He has accompanied the women's chorus, Ancora, the gay-straight alliance youth chorus, Diverse Harmony, the Seattle Girls' Choir, and Seattle-area middle and high school choirs; performed as a harp-weilding gypsy at Renaissance Faires, and with the a cappella choir, The Esoterics.

Early in 2013, he drove across the country with his father and his cat to start the New York City adventure, where he accompanied for the voice studio of Bengi Tasci, and has been teaching French at Fluent City, music theory, and composing larger works.
