There’s no Jeff like California Jeff, and we say that with the full confidence he’s a one-of-a-kind folk-singing, storytelling and entertaining performer who says it like it is and is as he does. Honest and sincere with a strong and healthy penchant for devilishly dark humor and a blessed belief in the craziness and spirituality of these wacky humans we hang around with all our lives, Jeff brings it on in a good and telling way. He spends his free time traveling from gig to gig around the Midwest, most recently sharing his talents with the good folks in places like Maryville, Tennessee; Winona, Minnesota; Batesville, Indiana; Shawano, Wisconsin; and Beulah, Michigan. His first full-length CD, Midwestern Folk, done at Springfield’s Southtown Sound (California Jeff pledged to their Kickstarter project to finance the deal), consists of “10 original songs, recorded live, no edits/overdubs, minimal production, completely self-funded,” as the man himself describes the process. So go spend time with California Jeff and be sure to pick up his new CD.
