Jeff Liberty earned his blues chops on the sidewalks New Orleans' French Quarter, the back streets of St. Louis, and Beale Street in Memphis.Since 1988, Liberty's scorching guitar and smoky voice have led him down 47 miles of barbed wire, treading paths first blazed by Freddy King, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, and The Doors, delighting fans, gaining the respect of veteran blues performers, and wowing critics.
Landing in Columbia, South Carolina in 2000, Liberty immediately blew the doors off of the local music scene and was voted "Best Local Solo Artist" in Columbia's Free Times Reader's Poll. A year later he formed the Jeff Liberty Band and was named "Best New Local Band" and "Best Local Blues Band" by Free Times readers in 2001.
Stomping through the bars, juke joints, and blues festivals throughout the Southeast, Liberty has performed with Kenny Neal, Shrimp City Slim, Juke Joint Johnny, Sonny Landreth, Little Charlie and the Nightcats, and many others.
He has shared the bill with Robert Plant, The Eagles, Aerosmith, Robin Trower, Cheap Trick, and The Marshall Tucker Band. He holds an honorary lifetime membership in The Beale Street Cadillac Blues Band in Memphis.
Liberty has taken the stage at many festivals throughout South Carolina including the Columbia Blues Festival, The Lowcountry Blues Bash, the Carolina Downhome Blues Festival, The Piccolo-Spoleto Festival, the Greenwood Blues Cruise, Artisphere, as well as the Bean Blossom Blues Festival in Nashville, Indiana.
Jeff Liberty welcomes show bookings both as a solo act and with his band at bars, clubs, festivals, and special occasions.
