"Death Row" nails it as a pedal-to-the-metal rocker a la John Moreland's "Everything the Hard Way", but the acoustic version's forlorn steel guitar makes the song less defiant and more hopeless.”

Rachel Cholst - No Depression

“12 Fret Nights” finds Jeff in a career sweet spot, showing younger artists where they should be headed by lighting the way.”
'12 Packs and 8 Tracks and Black & White TV", is a soundtrack not just for the journey but for the experience of being lost. Of having faith not because miracles abound but because it’s the only thing you have left.”

His new record, "12 Packs, 8 Tracks And Black & White TV," is a soundtrack not just for the journey but for the experience of being lost. Of having faith not because miracles abound but because it’s the only thing you have left.<p>
