Jeff Churchwell remembers what he loved and admired most about the music which shaped him, and attempts to recapture, refine and re-invent it for 21st-century listeners. You'll be the judge of that, of course, but hey, he can dream. The marriage of evocative, thought-provoking lyrics to memorable melodies is the goal in all of his writing, be it satirical or social, personal or romantic. "Ooooh, baby, yeah, baby" has yet to make its way from Jeff's head to the page, but it could, if that's what is required to make a song work. What makes its way from his 6 and 12-string guitars is sophisticated fingerstyle accompaniment, from pop to rock and folk to bluegrass.

Jeff's influences include: Shawn Colvin, Neil Finn, Béla Fleck, Peter Gabriel, Mark Knopfler, Annie Lennox, Lyle Lovett, Sarah McLachlan, Joni Mitchell, Stephen Stills, Sting and Jimmy Webb, Rather than go all hyperbolic about aspiring to join this pantheon of greats, Jeff will shut up and let the songs do the talking. Enjoy.
