The inception of Jeffrey Michaels' sound echoes back twenty years to the rural part of what’s known as the ‘Tri-state area’ where the borders of Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia all come together. The geographical location provided multiple musical influences. He soaked-up his parents' love for the oldies, the Southern rock and country music of his surroundings, and the gospel and blues music of his idols.
It’s no wonder Jeffrey's music cannot be put into a category, nor labeled by the current music scene. Characterized by powerful vocals that range from ethereal and haunting to raw and raucous, Jeffrey's innovative melodies and eclectic array of styles manage to bring elements of roots, blues, and rock & roll to country, and create a soulful and passionate sound unequaled by today's standards.
Years of touring with national acts have honed Jeffrey's stage skills to that of a consummate professional, while his natural charm and down to earth personality keep him accessible to his audience.
