Garland Jeffreys

Garland Jeffreys has been called an edgy urban poet, the sound of New York, a confessional singer-songwriter, and an explorer of the links between rock, race, and rebellion. With songs covered by artists as diverse as punk pioneers The Circle Jerks (“Wild in the Streets”) and the neo-folk band Vetiver (“Lon Chaney”), Jeffreys is truly unclassifiable. “Before Beck, there was Garland Jeffreys.” – Toronto Star
