“His words and voice hold down center stage with a craft so deeply in the artistic pocket that it obscures anything outside” Hyperbolium – No Depression
Boston’s WUMB listeners voted Jeff Black as one of the top 100 most important Folk artists of the last 25 years. Black’s songs have earned GRAMMY recognition, radio chart-topping stats and numerous BMI awards. Although flying below the radar as a performer himself, he has been recognized by NPR as a musical pioneer in the digital age. His flagship podcast “Black Tuesdays” circa 2005-2007 are classic imprints on the format and his catalog of critically acclaimed albums continues to grow. Composing music for film and television, his credits include numerous indie-film soundtracks and a repertoire of songs cut by artists as diverse as Alison Krauss & Union Station, Waylon Jennings, BlackHawk, Dierks Bentley, Jon Randall, John Oates, Jerry Douglas and Sam Bush. Black has forged a reputation as a true troubadour entertaining audiences globally for over three decades. A master songwriter and performer in the tradition of the great storytellers, his passionate, soul driven live performances of songs from his vast catalog is not to be missed.
