With only his voice and a guitar for accompaniment, Jeffrey Gaines has earned a reputation as a captivating performer, entertaining audiences everywhere he goes.
Raised in Harrisburg, PA by parents more inclined to spin soul classics by Aretha and Otis than the New Wave and Brit Rock blasting from their sons room, a teenaged Gaines began singing and playing guitar in several local garage bands. He soon decided to set out on his own and quickly landed a record deal, releasing Jeffrey Gaines, the first of his five studio releases. The album garnered four stars from The Philadelphia Inquirer, describing Gaines as an ethereal soulinsistent, impassioned, full of self-knowledge. Somewhat Slightly Dazed, and Galore followed. Interview Magazine called Gaines music soul-searching and refreshingly free of jargon, sentiment or cliché.
Jeffrey Gaines released Always Be (Artemis) to both critical and commercial praise. Featuring his emotional interpretation of In Your Eyes and his own soaringly beautiful Always Be, the album hit #5 on R&R Callout America CHR/Pop list, also reaching #45 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. The New York Post proclaimed Always Be as a dozen-song mixthat completely illustrates the depth he is capable of.
Gaines impressive catalogue grew with Toward The Sun, produced by Mitchell Froom (Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, and Crowded House). Mojo noted, This established soul-folkies sexy growl has an underlying edge, making it a memorable album. Heartfelt unpretentious.
