Jeremy D. Goodwin has hundreds of bylines in the Boston Globe since 2011, where he covers music, theater and timely arts news. He's also an editor and contributor to WBUR’s The ARTery and occasional on-air contributor to WBUR 90.9 FM. He's reported extensively for New England Public Radio, and has written for ARTnews, American Theatre, Dance Magazine, Relix, Boston Globe Magazine, Shakespeare Scene (U.K.), Berkshire Magazine and Berkshire Living. Jeremy is a member of the Boston Theater Critics Association.
After ten years soaking up the scenery and arts scene (performing and otherwise) of the Berkshires, he’s back home in the Boston area.
Favorite interview subjects over the years include Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon of Phish, Yo Yo Ma, Audra McDonald, Bill T. Jones, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Herbie Hancock, Nick Offerman, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead), Ginger Baker (Cream), Leonard Nimoy, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Chita Rivera and Andris Nelsons.
He has written one novel and was co-editor of, and major contributor to, all three editions of The Phish Companion: A Guide to the Band and Their Music.
Jeremy spent four years reporting the news for the Community Newspaper Company/Herald Media chain (Danvers, Mass.) and as News Editor for the Berkshire Record (Great Barrington, Mass.).
During an exploration of non-profit public relations, he was Director of Communications for Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, Mass. and Associate Director of Publicity for Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Mass.
Jeremy earned a BA in Political Communication from The George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs with a minor in creative writing.
His favorite novel is The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by
Laurence Sterne—and he's not just saying that. His favorite album is Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde. He also wrote this bio, obviously, but put it in third person because it seemed like the thing to do.
Jeremy was born in Boston, Massachusetts.
