Fifteen years before making his own flavor of folk music, Jeff stopped playing punk rock and refused to speak to anyone, at any time, unless absolutely necessary. He started tuning the guitar differently, and leaned on his limited hand movements from a poorly-healed broken elbow to adopt an American Primitive Guitar style. Using acoustic instruments and electronic elements, Jeff began making found-sound music compositions inspired by the late Johns Fahey and Cage, further developing his APG improvisational style in blues, ragas, sonic landscapes and instrumental acoustic compositions. On Groundhog Day in 2012, fatherhood pushed him in new directions, and more experimental instrumentals gave way to alternative folk/singer-songwriter music. As a multi-instrumentalist, composer and audio engineer, Jeff records and mixes at home when his kids are asleep. His works have been featured in radio, film and broadcast television programming.
