The last few years have certainly been interesting! I have been doing my best with getting back to work on projects, along with doing my best to stay healthy, positive and creative!
I've posted a few videos of solo pieces on my YouTube page from the dark days of the pandemic.
In person guitar lessons have resumed, though I still offer online lessons - they are super convenient!
I am super excited about my next recording project! Work is underway: songs have been written, the band is assembled, rehearsals are happening, and we're looking forward to getting out and gigging this material. Tentative plans to have the recording done by the end of 2021 or early 2022.
In the autumn of 2015, Jeffrey crossed the Atlantic from Toronto to attend Leeds College of Music for his Masters in Jazz Performance and Composition. During and after finishing his Masters degree he has been performing in Leeds and around the UK with other members of the local jazz scene. He worked with Stuart McCallum, Mike Walker and Jamie Taylor as part of his studies.
In late 2018 he recorded with his trio at Valley Wood Studio in Leeds. Check out the video page for the video taken during the recording session.
The finished album is now available on all major streaming platforms
As well as his own bands, Jeffrey also performs with Kabuki Wedding Band, Phil Lyons and his New Vintage Band, and is a founding member of Might As Well Be Swing and is part of the Jazz By Jeff & Becky duo with vocalist Rebecca Frodsham.
Time for some solo guitar courtesy of the wonderful folks at Matt & Phreds. I'll be playing a set of jazz standards and jazz tunes sans accompaniment - and trying my best to play the right notes
