Born in northern California, Jeff moved to Grand Junction, Colorado at the tender age of 5. He got his first drum kit at age 14. Largely self-taught, he spent most of his teenage years banging the skins to Led Zeppelin, Steve Miller Band and Rush.
Moving to Denver after high school, Jeff and a friend formed a country band that played steadily in the area for more than 5 years. During this time, Jeff honed his drumming skills and developed his natural talent for back-up vocals. In the late 90’s, family and school became his main focus. Though he never lost his love of performing, circumstances did not allow him to continue playing.
After a nearly 14 year hiatus and a move back to Grand Junction, Jeff started playing again in 2011, performing with several bands around town. Then, in early 2013, Jeff and two friends started the band that would become Bicycle Annie. They gained immediate popularity in the Grand Valley and remain one of the busiest bands this side of the mountain.
Jeff's passion for performing has grown and now his greatest love is being on stage and performing for crowds of any size.
