He plays acoustic guitar, 12 string guitar, banjo and ukulele, all to a high level of virtuosity. His vocal style is warm and well controlled. Think Pete Seeger.

The song he wrote with Michael Fix, 'Memories and Dreams', was nominated for a People's Choice Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Jeff's song, 'Blame it on the Moon', was a finalist in the Best Jazz Song category at the Northern Rivers Dolphin Awards.
