Portrait features an incredible list of performers featuring the tasty guitars of Joe Calderon and Ryan Teanio from Los Angeles, and Trever Veilleux from Hawaii. Additionally, the project also features Hawaii Bassist Gonzo and Percussionist Bill Heideman.
Since mid 2013, Jeff has been busy writing and recording the music for the upcoming release. “It has been a wonderful process and the band has grown tighter through that process.” Jeff’s third CD “Shoestrings” enjoyed wonderful success both in the US and abroad earning a Hawaii Na Hoku Hanohano nomination in 2012. Critics and listeners alike agreed that there was something very unique about that project. “Portrait” picks up right where “Shoestrings” left off.
“Portrait is a reflection of the influences and changes that I’ve experienced recently in my life.” The collaboration of talent on this project is really a big coming of age for Jeff. The inter-twining of artists from different genres has resulted in an album that is like no other. “My music is the true essence of what I am about…I sincerely hope the listener will be moved”.
Portrait was recorded and produced by Jeff and mastered by Steve Hall. Fans are encouraged to visit Jeff’s website which provides everything you could want to know about the musician. You find this album at CDBaby.
