*Professional Electric Cellist, Multi-Instrumentalist (Vocals, Bass, Piano, Guitar)*
A classically trained cellist starting at the age of six, Jeff Ehrinpreis’ musical interests turned to rock, funk and blues in high school (Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers & Robert Johnson, to name a few), taught himself guitar at the age of 17 and he eventually became a guitarist/singer in rock bands. Looking to go beyond standard guitar rock, he acquired an electric cello and began playing the electric cello with all the instincts of a rock guitar player. He began using an Ampeg bass amplifier (to control the resonation of the low strings with the cello bow) and plugged in all six of his electric guitar effect pedals (wah, distortion, chorus, delay, reverb and flanger). The result is a completely new sound that creates excitement within the people that are listening and watching him play. Many people have never seen an electric cello play, let alone one that combines pure rock with hip hop and classical.
A lifelong resident of the Detroit area, Jeff has performed his music at most of its major venues and constantly experiments with new musical ideas and ways of playing the instrument. Passion is Jeff’s feel for music…passion and creativity. He has always thrived on one philosophy: "The exploration of music leads to the discovery of life."
