deadshotkeen I heard ‘Keep It Chill (in the East Vill.)’ on our 6Music here in the UK early in the lockdown period and knew I had to have this. Brave, funny, poignant, informative and great tunes to boot – everything you expect from Jeffrey and will last long after Covid has shuffled off the planet.

Jeffrey says:
When I started making up songs in the late 90s I would usually make a tape full of songs at least once a year, and then I'd try to sell copies of the tapes at open mic nights and any place I could play. After a few of these annual cassette-albums I started having the opportunity to release stuff on CD, and the opportunity to release stuff through record labels, but I never stopped making up songs and recording them any way possible. It was all from following the example of how Daniel Johnston had done it. All my 20+ years of recording songs I owe to Daniel! RIP!
For whoever might be interested, this is my 2020 tape. Not making physical copies though. Thanks for your support.


released September 29, 2020
