Jeremy Diffey

Drawing from influences ranging from Coltrane and Adderley, to Stevie Wonder, Kenny Garrett and Courtney Pine, Jeremy Diffey’s music takes modern jazz and gives it a distinctive groove. Jeremy has studied at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, gaining both a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Commerce (Management) in 2011. He majored in both jazz performance and composition. Upon graduating from university, Jeremy took on numerous roles as a musical director on board various cruise ships throughout the world. After a couple of years, Jeremy returned home to firmly establish himself on the Australian music scene. In 2007, Jeremy released his first album under ‘The Jeremy Diffey Quintet’, titled “Groovin’ Live” – on which he played both alto and soprano saxophones – this album is still available on iTunes today. From 2007 to 2009, Jeremy played saxophones, clarinets and flutes in the studio band for the television show, “The Singing Bee”. He was also the arranger for the band. Between 2008 and 2009 Jeremy played woodwinds in the Channel 7 TV-show, “Australia’s Got Talent”. During this same two-year period, Jeremy performed with the recording group ‘CBD”, as well as being a member of the orchestra for the musical, “Wicked!”. In 2010, Jeremy was kept busy performing and arranging for Channel 9’s much loved national TV-show, “Hey Hey It’s Saturday”, as well as touring with triple-platinum Italian crooner, Patrizio Buanne. The last couple of years have seen Jeremy as an arranger and woodwind specialist on well known Australian TV-shows, “X Factor” and “Australia’s Got Talent”. Jeremy Diffey is a Selmer Paris endorsed artist, and performs regularly on both a Selmer Recital Bb Clarinet, and a Selmer Privilege Bass Clarinet.

Recital Bb Clarinet Privilege Bass Clarinet to low CThe Selmer Recital Bb Clarinet and Privilege Bass Clarinet are two of my favourite instruments as they offer a consistently warm tone in any environment. The innovations that Selmer have made to the keywork design on the Bass Clarinet makes it a solid instrument, with all registers being free and open. The intonation is flawless across the registers, and both instruments sound equally amazing at any dymanic - from a ppp to fff!
