From Jeff: "I originally intended these live recordings to be used as demos for my second studio album, but I liked them so much that I decided to release them instead. Coming off of my first studio album it seemed just right somehow..."
Jeff writes folk/pop songs with shades of classical guitar. Songs on this nifty little EP range from catchy folk/pop ("Lunch in the Park") to classical/folk ("Sunshine") to a rousing rendition of the classic "On the Sunny Side of the Street". Friend and NYC singer/songwriter Casey Shea sits in on "Lunch" and "Gold Rush".
