___________________________________________________________________________________________

Jeff started "making up " songs when he was about 5 or 6 , but wrote his first real song when he was 13.

Jeff is a seasoned live performer having played over 2,000 gigs all over New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Maine.

Jeff has great stage presence ...
when he "covers" a song ... he makes it his own
when he plays you one of his originals ... he'll touch your heart.

We are proud to have him in the Broken Compass Family ... this music is going to make some noise!

If you enjoy these songs, tell your friends ... these songs deserve to be heard !
