Jeremy Enigk ( , born July 16, 1974) is an Americanmarker singer-songwriter and guitarist known for being the front man of the Seattlemarker band Sunny Day Real Estate.


Enigk was born in Seattle, Washington. his 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) 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.

Enigk was part of what would eventually become Poor Old Lu, sharing vocalist duties with Scott Hunter. [119927] Enigk rejoined the band for a single track in 1996, singing alongside Scott on the band's Straight Six EP, on the track, "Digging Deep."

He scored the soundtrack for the 2003 film The United States of Leland. In 2006, he followed Frog Queen with another solo album, World Waits on his own label, Lewis Hollow Records. A song from the album, "Been Here Before," was included as an MP3 with Winamp.

In June 2009, it was confirmed that Sunny Day Real Estate will be reuniting once again with the original line-up. Tour dates, starting in 2009, have been scheduled.


Sunny Day Real Estate, especially Enigk, are often cited as progenitors of today's emo music.

Enigk recently commented on the bands he's seen covering his music on You Tube, in particular the band Paramore who made the SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE song "Faces In Disguise" part of their most recent tour's setlist. "I’ve actually seen one of those (Paramore) videos and I think it’s amazing. I was absolutely flattered! Because, the singer, Hayley Williams has an amazing voice! So, to see her sing it, that’s super flattering to me. From time to time, I will You Tube old SUNNY DAY videos, and I came across that."
