SmokeTree Records recording artist Jeff Coffey has just released his second solo CD entitled “Long Way Home”. This new CD features nine new tracks that bridge the gap between Pop, Rock and a hint Country and allows Jeff’s distinctive voice and crafty songwriting to shine through.
Jeff has toured and performed with such artists as Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Sixpence None the Richer & Vertical Horizon just to name a few. His recording credits include working with such great producers as Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Whitesnake, Rick Springfield), John Kurzweg (Creed, Puddle of Mudd), Justin Niebank (Keith Urban), and Stan Lynch (Don Henley). He released his first solo CD in 2003 featuring his distinctively powerful voice through soaring melodies and solid songwriting. The rich sounds of his music solidly found their place on the Pop and Rock airwaves as many songs received spins on over 60 Top 40/AC stations across the country, as well as XM Radio.
After many packed shows at feature venues such as Hard Rock Live, House of Blues & SunFest, Jeff has established himself as a prominent force not only in the Florida music scene, but nationally as well. He won accolades from Songwriters Showcase of America. In 2003, his song "Carousel" was voted Song of the Year and in 2004 he was named Male Solo Act of the Year. His songs have been featured on television shows such as MTV's Fraternity Life, Sorority Life, Room Raiders and E! Network's Gastineau Girls just to name a few. "Write About Me", released in March of 2004, is featured in Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's video game Sweet 16 Licensed to Drive and topped the NMW AC40 "Most Added" &"Prime Mover" Charts.
Jeff's National TV appearances include NBC's "StarTomorrow", "The Daily Buzz" on the WB Television Network and performing the National Anthem at several Orlando Magic and Atlanta Braves spring training games. The undeniable heart-and-soul of this up-and-coming artist is evermore present in his music. "Music is the backdrop to our lives and I hope that my music can affect people. I don't want to sound like everybody else, and I certainly don't want every song I play to be more of the same thing. For me, the more curves there are on the road ........……………….... the more fun it is to drive."
Jeff Coffey … An artist not to be missed!
