Exclusive stream: Jeff's Dead self-titled album
The Perth trio's debut full-length is a glorious musical journey.
Music is a funny thing; it can take an artist years, even decades, to find the perfect writing formula, then when they do - everything seems to just fall into place and they wonder why it couldn't have been so easy the first time around. For these types of artists, it feels all the sweeter when they do eventually settle on that winning sound, and all of the stress, pain and threats to retire from music altogether seem absolutely worth it. Singer/songwriter Jeff Strong falls into this category, having first taken to stages around Perth over ten years ago playing his solo material. Strong wrote and recorded an album of his own songs, but by the time it was released his style and musical taste had changed to the point where the tracks on the record had become obsolete.
Following a strong 2007, spent playing alongside the likes of Little Birdy and Birds Of Tokyo with the addition of a full band, Strong took a step back from music; until last year when he emerged with close friends Louis Inglis and Cameron J Hanush as Jeff's Dead. 2015 saw the trio release a debut, self-titled EP, solidifying the band as one of Perth's most exciting up and coming rock acts, and now, a year on, we see the debut record from Jeff's Dead. Raw, edgy and built on all the best elements of country, punk and rock; Jeff's Dead's full-length is a glorious journey that offers up something for even the fussiest music connoisseur.
Perth people can catch the Jeff's Dead album launch at Mojo's on Saturday, August 13.
