Jeff Plankenhorn
Jeff Plankenhorn, singer-songwriter and all things strings multi-instrumentalistguitar, lap steel, mandolin, piano, upright bassbegan his career as a boy soprano in Ohio. After studying music theory and composition at University of Michigan, Texas beckoned when Ray Wylie Hubbard enticed Jeff to join his band. Slide guitar virtuoso, Jeff spent his early career backing the likes of Hubbard and Joe Ely. His patented lap slide guitar, the Plank, with a distinctive sound derived from the instrument's square neck and electric guitar bodynetted him Austin Music Awards 2017 Best Miscellaneous Instrument.

Now a potent solo artist, his larger-than-life presence on stage binds together a host of talents into a powerful whole. His soulful roots rock gained him a seat among the best contemporary Americana songwriters, while the vocal clarity and power developed in his early years is unmistakable in his poignant baritone now. Jeffs deep sense of community is evident in the Purgatory Players Gospel brunch, contributing 153,275 meals to the Texas Food Bank in 2019 and his fundraising efforts for the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. He has collaborated with Ray Wylie Hubbard, Joe Ely, Patty Griffin, Ruthie Foster, Bob Schneider, the Flatlanders, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, and more.

Jeff Plankenhorn has become an Austin institution, sought after by many artists to lend his musical talents to their albums and performances. Calling him a guitarist doesnt do him justice, though. Sure, hes designed his very own guitar  a custom lap steel guitar called, perhaps not surprisingly, The Plank. And you can give him just about any stringed instrument and hell no doubt get it singing.
Mayer Danzig, Twangville

Plankenhorn made his name in Austin as a preeminent guitar slinger, especially as a slide specialist. Now he's put pen to paper and is increasingly known for his impressive songwriting and powerful voice. With the recent release of SoulSlide he has completed his bona fides as both a master instrumentalist and an important songwriter and singer. Austin Songwriter

"Over the course of the last two decades, Jeff Plankenhorn has worked tirelessly to earn his rep as one of the most reliably can-do, right-dude-for-the-job musicians in Austin, Texas. As an exceptionally talented acoustic, electric, slide, and lap-steel guitarist with a keen understanding of the importance of playing to and for a song rather than all over it, hes been called on countless times to back a veritable whos who of Texas and Americana musics finest singers and songwriters, including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Joe Ely, Eliza Gilkyson, Ruthie Foster, and the late Jimmy LaFave.
