Jeff Watson has established himself as one of the worlds most revolutionary and technically gifted guitarists. Jeff originated the ?8 Finger Technique,? a fret board tapping style he has used to astound casual fans and professional musicians alike, whether it be on Night Ranger hits like ?(You Can Still) Rock In America?, on his awesome solo albums, or through his work with Mothers Army. Jeff's musical talent has also made him a highly sought after session player, adding guitar tracks to the albums of Chris Isaak, Tony MacAlpine, Steve Morse, and many more.
Jeff's musical talent has also made him a highly sought after session player, adding guitar tracks to the albums of Chris Isaak, Tony MacAlpine, Steve Morse, and many more. Jeff's powerful stage presence, and flawless playing has become one of his trademarks. Overshadowed by his virtuoso playing is Jeff's songwriting talent. He has shown an incredible knack for writing powerful heartfelt lyrics and gorgeous arrangements. One listen to songs like ?Goodbye,? ?Let Him Run,? ?Sunday Morning,? and ?Around The Sun,? and any listener can feel the pure emotion Jeff can evoke in his songs. This is not to say that Jeff can't pen blazing rockers, and songs like the Night Ranger classics ?New York Time? and ?I Don't Call This Love?, or Jeff's solo tune ?Cement Shoes? (with Sammy Hagar), are a testament to that.
Recently he is scored his first full length motion picture, a documentary on the advent of rock climbing and Yosemite Valley called Vertical Frontiers, as well as appearing in the hit Disney film ?Enchanted' in 2008, and he is currently putting the finishing touches on his new upcoming solo album 'Squirrels & Kerosene.'
