Who is jefff?
Musician, savant, pied piper, guru, father, partner, world traveler, kite and wave surfer.
Hailing from Lebanon, Pennsylvania, jefff started playing piano at 7, began writing songs at 13 and studied, Jazz, music theory, history and philosophy.
He fronted the super groovy Massachusetts world beat band "Entrain" for 3 years and has been based in Key West, Florida for the last 15 years.
During this time jefff has jammed with musicians such as Jimmy Buffett, Zac Brown and G-Love and has recorded 4 solo albums.
Key West fans will recognize The Fire, jefff's ultra-catchy new single, from the very first note out of Marty Stonely's tenor sax.
One part soul ballad and two parts island jam, The Fire takes turns letting its layers of gospel, reggae, and rock shine through.
jefff brings them together in an irresistible chorus that might as well be the unofficial anthem of the Conch Republic.
The Fire is the third single released off of My Last CD, jefff's debut record for Conch Town Music.
On August 14th, jefff releases his new single "R U Hip 2 the Revolution?" along with a cinematic video.
In it, jefff asks the question and invokes a response from the listener:
“The evolution of the human spirit and of music are inexorably tied to one another. If we are to survive and grow thru these strange and troubled times, the music must unite us with a shared vision, re-invigorate us and ground us."
"I believe I am an integral part of this next level communication. I am excited by the opportunity today to explore new avenues of inspiration with regards to sweet soul music when the world needs it most; and I feel most ready when world calls on me.”
Look inside the mind of jefff through his new single, “Windows”, an edgy and exuberant reflection on moving through life. “Windows” pairs grooving bass lines and punchy, agitated rhythm guitar with spontaneous vocals and expressive lyrics, summoning the experimental songwriting of John Lennon, David Byrne, and Lou Reed. The sum of the parts is an unpredictable, rollicking, and rhythmic meditation on mistakes and redemption that perfectly fits our times. “Windows” is the second single released off of “My Last CD”, jefff’s debut record for Conch Town Music. His first single, ”R U Hip 2 the Revolution”, was released in August 2020 and received 200,000 streams in its first three weeks.
jefff will continue to share his world vision through music during the Fall with further single and video releases culminating in the release of his new album "My Last CD" on November 20th. Recorded in Key West, this is a collection of funky and island rhythm songs, recorded with friends in the studio and live, to "move your mind and for your ass to follow."
