    His first album, The Alcatraz Kid, released in 2006, resulted in Messersmith being named the "premier under-30 songwriter in the Twin Cities" by City Pages. The Alcatraz Kid also received the attention of Performing Songwriter, KCRW, and The Current.
    The title "The Alcatraz Kid" was inspired by a man who used the name to prank-call where Messersmith worked.

    Messersmith followed up with his second album, The Silver City, produced by Dan Wilson who has gained fame as lead singer of Semisonic and Trip Shakespeare, as well as his work with Adele, Taylor Swift, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, and Josh Groban. The production and sonic landscapes capture a range of pop songs ranging from the electronically inspired "Miracles" to love songs like "Love You To Pieces."

    The Silver City was recognized in a press poll as the second-best album in the Twin Cities in 2008, losing out only to the rising star of hip hop act, Atmosphere. Messersmith has been featured on NPR, NPR's Car Talk, Paste Magazine, iTunes, NY Times, New York Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine, BoingBoing, USA Today, My Old Kentucky Blog, Yahoo Landing Page, World Cafe Live on WXPN, Independent Film Channel, MTV's The Real World, NBC's Chuck, ABC's Ugly Betty, Two Broke Girls (CBS), and Showtime's The United States of Tara. Additionally, he has had his songs featured in a French Film and Norwegian commercial.
    In February 2009, Messersmith began a Twitter account, username jmessersmith. He tweeted extensively during his 2010 tour.
    In 2010, Messersmith's Reluctant Graveyard was named one of the Top 10 Albums of 2010 by NPR, Top 25 Videos of 2010 by Paste Magazine, and also won the Star Tribune's Critics Poll for Best Local Artist. His video for the Star Wars themed Tatooine went viral, with Messersmith receiving national press in several publications.
    He has opened for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden on separate occasions.
    In the Fall of 2012, Jeremy embarked on a "Supper Club Tour" in which he combined Pot Luck Dinners with Living Room Shows, selling out shows across the country.
    In 2013, he signed with Glassnote Records for his forthcoming release.
