Hi Jeff is my cousin so I guess I know a little bit about him although we haven't talk in years. He was born in California in the Bay area. He grew up listening to Bands like America, Poco, CSN, Neil Young, Dan fogelberg. He learned to play the Guitar but the teacher said he couldn't help him any more because Jeff would learn on his own faster then the Teacher was teaching. He taught himself harmonica, banjo, piano. And started writing songs/music right away. Sometimes writing a song in minutes. He would get headaches from spending so much time thinking about his songs.
We started out going to San Francisco together were he would play at a place called the Wine Cellar. I would take Pictures for him. He's friends with Gerry Beckley from America, grown up as a fan and know a friend. I hope this helps.
