A true renaissance man, Jeff is an airline/movie film pilot, family man, professional singer/songwriter, and bandleader. Jeff’s Hollywood aerial film credits include some of the biggest movie hits of our time: True Lies, Hot Shots, Space Cowboys, and Silence of the Lambs.
His love of music began early with rock & roll classics of the 60’s & 70’s. Picking up a guitar at the age of 8, Jeff now writes & records his original compositions with the band he formed in 2002, CTS (Consider The Source).
In 2009, Jeff created a new era for the award-winning CTS band with the introduction of the “Freedom Rock Experience.” Remembering his inspiration for the idea, Jeff said, “I wanted to do something unique and touch young people’s lives in a positive way through our music. While attending my daughter’s orchestra recital, I thought of integrating high school or college orchestras into a rock concert experience with CTS. My ultimate goal is to inspire students to pursue their dreams in this great country of ours, where anything is possible.”
Download fees to help promote safe student driving program nationwide
(Phoenix, AZ) – September , 2012 –The award-winning rock band CTS (Consider The Source) has joined forces with the non-profit 501 (c) organization B.R.A.K.E.S. to generate additional funding for their student driving education programs. CTS has issued a new recording download of their popular song about drag racing, “Quarter Mile,” with download proceeds dedicated to the B.R.A.K.E.S. safe driving programs.
As part of the effort, NHRA will lend promotional support through its numerous marketing platforms, including social media and NHRA.com, to promote its availability.
B.R.A.K.E.S. has provided safe driving instruction courses for over 8,000 students from 19 different states and 2 countries. The organization’s goal is to increase funding to introduce the B.R.A.K.E.S. program to public & private schools throughout North America with the goal of reducing teen driving accidents.
“The song ‘Quarter Mile,’ was inspired by a drag racing friend of mine who said she lived her life a quarter mile at a time. I was so impressed by all the obstacles she’d overcome to pursue her racing passion, I had to write a song comparing her life’s journey to achieving any dream we have,” stated Jeff Senour, founder of CTS.
“We are excited about this unique fundraising effort with B.R.A.K.E.S., our goal is to generate additional funding so the program can be offered nationwide,” said Senour.
CTS introduced the "Freedom Rock Experience” concert series to feature the talents of select high school orchestras to provide a new fundraising and performing opportunity for music students. The new “Quarter Mile” recording is a result of the new concert series and features the full orchestra symphonic sounds of Beau Shekeryk.
The new “Quarter Mile” music download is available on CTSmusic.com, CD Baby, ITunes, and Amazon.
NHRA Top Fuel Dragster driver/owner, Doug Herbert, lost his two sons, Jon (17), and James (12), in an automobile accident in January 2008. To help prevent other parents from enduring the pain of losing a child, Jon’s classmates helped Doug form the non-profit organization, B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe). The B.R.A.K.E.S. mission is to prevent injuries and save lives by educating teenage drivers about the importance of safe, responsible driving with classroom and practical “hands-on-the-wheel” driving instruction.
