Based in the Hudson Valley of New York State, Jeff is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. Lunescapes Volume One (to be released winter 2018 via The Satellite Union & Psychic Troubles Tapes) will be Jeff's first full-length, solo release. Recorded at home (mostly in the kitchen, on a sometimes unruly upright piano) the Lunescapes offer a series of instrumental vignettes, intimate landscapes, and lo-fi fantasies. The writing and recording for volume two is ongoing and will be finished later in 2018.
From 1998-2011, Jeff was also a member of the band Mercury Rev - contributing to some of the band's most critically acclaimed work, including Deserter's Songs, All Is Dream, and more. It was with the band that he gained his first opportunity to write for picture, composing and producing the original score for Robinson Savary's debut feature-length film, Bye Bye Blackbird.
In addition to his ongoing solo work and work for film, television & commercial advertising, Jeff is an active session musician and current member of several groups, including: Miracle Whips (PDX-based, porch-rock dream team) and the improvisational, noise-rock/spazz-jazz collective, otherwise known as Ultraam. Jeff has also recently been appointed as National Director of Music for O+ (a national non-profit, based in Kingston, NY that works to provide musicians & visual artists with access to health care & wellness services). When not in the studio, he can be found fly-fishing the legendary streams of the Catskill Mountains.
