”The album features special guest appearances by Grammy Award winner, Colin Linden, Juno Award winning singer, Kellylee Evans and is co-produced by Dick Cooper of The Cooper Brothers. Jeff is super eager for everyone to hear it. “I can’t wait to get out there and play it!

Stay tuned. The story is just getting started.
