Biography

Although raised by a piano teacher/church organist, Jeffrey is a self-taught musician/composer. He began playing drums at age nine, then picked up guitar and piano in his teen years and began writing instrumentals. Over the years, accordion, toy piano, electric piano, chord organs, glockenspiel, melodica, banjo and other noise makers have worked their way into his repertoire. His debut full-length album She Traded Her Leg (Lona Records, 2006) was received to great acclaim and supported by an international tour, including dates in Hong Kong, Paris, and across the United States. His follow up release, The Garden of Scissors (2009) continues in the imaginitive musical collagework of his prior release while expanding on new ground, including collaborations with Sanni Baumgaertner of Dancer vs. Politician. Jeffrey’s penchant for tribute performances, in which he reinvents the legacies of some of his favorite influences in the manner of John Zorn, have to date included sets of material by Tom Waits, Vince Guaraldi, and an index of the music for the films of David Lynch. Other recent work includes Jeffrey’s creative extension into film, including a score for C. Hefner’s film Birdcatcher, which curried favor from legendary experimental filmmaker Guy Maddin, as well as a short film written by Jeffrey for his song Lucy 5’s Egg, as interpreted by Italian video artist Marco Missano.
