He was signed to the Chrysalis Records label in 1990 and released his debut eponymous album in 1992. While he continues to perform live, he has not released any albums since "Jeffrey Gaines Live" in 2004.
Gaines studied art before becoming a singer as a teenager. He joined a local cover band then left later and released his first, self-titled album in 1992 after signing to Chrysalis Records. He released albums in 1994 and 1998, then had a breakthrough in 2001 when his cover of " In Your Eyes " became an Adult Contemporary hit. Speaking with Songfacts about his record company experience, Gaines said: "I think it was great recording for a label - that label, any label - it has been great. Since leaving Chrysalis / EMI, I went on to do the same thing for other labels, and those experiences have gone and are going great as well. In the US, I recorded for Rykodisc and Artemis Recors. Overseas, my records came out on Epic, Virgin."
Gaines continues to perform live.
