Biography

Jeremy McComb was born in Washington state. His father, Bob, was a local musician who played six nights a week and regularly brought him to venues where he performed. McComb made his singing debut at age eight, when his father invited him to join him onstage to sing Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again". Later on, McComb found work as a music director and disc jockey at the radio station KIXZ-FM in Spokane, Washington. He often references a friend named "Marco"in his shows. "Marco" is from Sussex,WI and Jeremy refers to him as the mayor of the small enclave of Sussex. He then befriended comedian Larry the Cable Guy while working at the station, and was hired as the comedian's tour manager in 2004 at age 23.

McComb began working on his music while serving as Larry's manager. While with the comedian, he was introduced to J.P. Williams, the CEO of Parallel Entertainment. He was then sent to a studio in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he began recording his debut album. Initially, it was to have been released on a division of Warner Bros. Records, but legal difficulties forced Williams to release it on his own label instead. Entitled My Side of Town, it was released on Parallel/New Revolution in June 2008, and was produced by Paul Riddle of the Marshall Tucker Band. The first single from the album, "Wagon Wheel," was originally recorded by Bob Dylan and later by the Old Crow Medicine Show and Darius Rucker. Following it was "This Town Needs a Bar," which was written by Liz Rose and Jimmy Yeary, and was originally featured in the soundtrack to the film Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector. The first two singles both failed to chart, although the third single, "Cold", debuted at number 58 on the Billboard country charts in November 2008 and peaked at number 43.

Country Weekly magazine gave My Side of Town three-and-a-half stars out of five, calling it "one of the year's most encouraging ". "Cold" received a favorable review from the country music review site Roughstock, whose critic Matt Bjorke called it "a ballad which details the difficulties that people sometimes have in getting over a relationship…McComb sings about feeling numb, or 'Cold' about the way that the relationship ended."

Background

The company carries over six million passengers per year, and its buses cover over 6 million miles.

In addition to Bedford, they also operate certain buses to surrounding towns, including Northampton, Luton, Milton Keynes, Hitchin and Flitwick.

The flagship X5 service operates from Cambridge to Oxford via Bedford and Milton Keynes using Plaxton bodied Volvo B9R coaches, and runs up to every 30 minutes most days. To assist the elderly and disabled, most routes have low-floor buses.

Most routes operate all week, all routes (with the exception of 42 Flitwick and 52 Milton Keynes via Cranfield University) operate to a reduced timetable on Sundays, and some only operate on Sundays (72 Hitchin via Henlow Camp and Haynes village). On bank holidays, a Sunday service is operated.

In 2006, as part of a scheme to improve services, Stagecoach East rebranded a number of Stagecoach in Bedford's bus routes using names of planets in the Solar System. The first routes to be rebranded were the Hitchin to Bedford and Biggleswade to Bedford, which became the Mars routes M1 through M4. 11 new low-floor buses carrying special Mars liveries were brought in for these routes. As the year progressed, more routes were rebranded after planets. In total, six planets were used for routes and, along with Mars, included the following: Mercury - Sharnbrook to Bedford Venus - Wootton to Bedford and Cranfield to Bedford Jupiter - Flitwick to Bedford Saturn - Luton to Bedford Pluto - Northampton to Bedford Depot Bedford with an outstation at Biggleswade. The Bedford depot occupies a site beside the former Oxford to Cambridge 'Varsity' railway line. See also List of bus operators of the United Kingdom
