Jeff Talmadge / Bio

Jeff’s wide-ranging experiences permeate his songs. He has been a janitor, a Capitol Hill Congressional press secretary, an associate scout for a major league baseball team, a published poet, a seminary student, a board-certified lawyer and an award-winning songwriter. His story songs and finger-picking guitar style, in the tradition of other well-known Texas songwriters, have been heard on everything from the Judy Collins holiday radio special that aired throughout the U.S. to NPR’s Car Talk. When "Gravity, Grace and the Moon" was released in 2003 in the U.S. on Bozart Records it was described in SingOut! Magazine as “a masterpiece,” and he was soon signed to Europe-based Corazong Records. Since his 1999 debut CD, "Secret Anniversaries" (described by one reviewer as a “nearly perfect recording”), each of Jeff’s recordings has received extraordinary reviews and extensive radio airplay. "Blissville", first released in Europe, debuted at No. 2 on the EuroAmericana Chart and reached No. 1 on the Roots Music Report in the U.S. The Americana audience responded, and "Blissville" remained on the Americana Chart for three months. His songs have also been recorded by numerous other artists. Jeff’s sixth album, "At Least That Much Was True", has received a five star rating from 'Maverick Magazine'. 'Buddy Magazine' described the lyrics and songs as “predictably strong” and “thematically pure.”
