ABOUT THIS ARTIST
Jeff’s music is an original mix of 70’s inspired pop, jazz, soul and folk similar to early Elton John, Billy Joel and Tori Amos. He’s received 3 honorable mentions in international songwriting contests. His first CD can be heard on CBC and iTunes, and he just completed a tour of the East Coast in July 2013.
“Jeff’s approach very much reminds me of an early Billy Joel. He expresses hope, he expresses sadness and his lyrics are saturated with feeling. it’s a smooth, tender expression [that]strikes for the heart. If you still haven’t heard at least one of [his songs]by the end of the day you’re missing out…” – Johnny Sixstring, weloverocknpop.com
