Influences: Jason Isbell, Darrell Scott, Radney Foster, Tim O'Brien, Jeffrey Foucault, Jackson Browne
Mostly Americana-style Singer/Songwriter with a moderately baritone voice and a southern accent. Guitar strumming chops are marginally adequate for doing 1+1 "three chords and the truth" type compositions. On the Musesongwriters site for a couple of years with this same handle. Virgin FAWMer in 2021.
thanks so much 😀
I didn't notice. TBH, I almost always flub something every performance, but most of the time no one seems to notice.
hi, Jeff, thanks for stopping by. That guitar was handmade in Japan sometime in the early 90s (I think, could be slightly earlier) by an old craftsman. My dad gave it to me last year just before FAWM. He got it off craigslist from the original owner, who picked it up while deployed in Japan. They had two of them and my dad regrets not buying the other one, but it's not like he needs another guitar around the house (and I certainly don't either).
Thanks for your kind comments on "Birds of Galway Bay," Jeff! I was super impressed with "Pardon My Love" too -- both the song itself (which strikes me as the kind of finely crafted song Nashville *wishes* it could still deliver) and by your delivery. I'm still getting a handle on how to navigate within my own vocal range, and I was struck by how well your voice fit that melody, and vice versa. THanks again!
I didn't watch the second song no, ran out of time and had to cook dinner. I'm sure it was ok?
Loved your song earlier today. Thanks for joining the fawm song circle week 3!!
hey, Jeff, thanks for taking a listen on a couple of mine.
Much appreciated. Yeah, "Call Me.." may be my favorite for my FAWM songs this year. Thank you!
Thanks for listening to my songs "Start Walking in Your Dreams" and "Amelia" and my collab song "Tears at Midnight", I appreciate it!!
Jeff, I'm enjoying listening through your work. You're a FAWMling who deserves more listens! Doubly so, since you're a Pearlfishers fan too.
Thanks for the comment on my 'pizza song'!
Well, you’re double-dog welcome, and thank you right back!
Thanks for listening and the kind comments on two of my songs. And thanks for the link to that poem by Gjertrud Schnackenberg on writing classical music. It's very funny. It really isn't worth getting too tangled up in all the terminology. Best to just go with your ear, I think. At least, it's more freeing. That's why my "Choir's Back" ended up as a hybrid of a canon and a fugue. 😀
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Looking forward to doing some listening this week 😀
Hey man, thank's for your feedback on my songs. Very much appreciated:)
Thanks for the comment on my lyricloud skirmish song.
Thank you so much for your kind message. I've enjoyed listening very much.
Have you enjoyed FAWM Jeff? I haven't dived in as much as I wanted to personally, but I have enjoyed it.
Thank you for your comments on John and Spiral! Being compared to Gillian Welch is an honor.
Hey now, don't say that. I used to work in the industry, so I have the unfair advantage of having gear and software. I'd give it up to be able to write like you do. It's not about mix quality, it's about soul, which your work has in spades.
Thank you. Sorry to be a bother.
Hi there. Would you mind editing your comment on Coastline? I know you meant it as a compliment, but it comes off as mean to Mike. Thanks man.
Thanks for the comment on my collab song with Tammy.
"Radiohead in one of their less inaccessible moods"! 😂🤣
Yes, they have a song, "Bulletproof" that will definitely be harvested for production ideas. 👍
Thanks for the kind words, my friend.
Thanks for the listen and the comment on my song, friend.
Thx the kind words on Wondering...it was fun to do.
Pardon my comment was written in hurry so much mistakes there. Thank you for listening and polite comments of my songs.
Thanks for the comment on my 'opera' song!
Thanks for the listen and comment on my collab with Geoff!
You live in Tampa. Nice! I’ll be hanging out just south of there for a couple weeks in St. Pete Beach. Towards the end of the month. Hopefully it’s warm!
Thanks for the song comments!
Hey Jeff! Good to see you here!
Glad you found your way over here, Jeff. 😊
Hey, Jeff. Thanks for the comments on More Than Grateful. It's funny that you picked up on the dogwood buds, because that's the image I've had in my brain for weeks that I didn't know what to do with.
Enjoy FAWM. Thanks for the post on my page - it was great to see you and the other Muse folk on the Zoom call!
Have a great FAWM Jeff and it was wonderful to hear and see you as well.
Looking forward to hearing your 2021 FAWM songs!
Have a great FAWM, Jeff!
Welcome to FAWM! A help here for you early on: if you reply to someone's comment on your soundboard, they may not see your reply unless they revisit your actual page (this page we're on) and read through your soundboard. Same applies to song comments.
So if you want to reply to a comment, you need to to do it on the commenter's soundboard. Suggestion in this case, you put this "Thanks very kindly" up in your Artist Bio.
Welcome to FAWM!!!
Thanks very kindly, folks. I’m looking forward (slightly nervously) to sharing with you all whatever rapid fire creative shots in the dark this process may extract from everyone.
Welcome to FAWM
Hi Jeff from a couple of hours south of you!
Welcome, and happy FAWMing!
