Kurt Vonnegut Tribute Show

Natalies Grandview, 945 King Ave, Columbus

Here's the idea: 5 singer/songwriters write and perform several songs inspired by the life or work of the acclaimed author, Kurt Vonnegut. The lineup for this show is stellar. I'll be sharing the stage with Happy Chichester, Neal Havener, Joey Hebdo, and the band, The Everlasting Happiness--all excellent Columbus performers. Come for a fun, slightly weird, and interesting evening.

A bit about me

Life's Hard

So I write songs that make me smile. Often, I play ’em for friends and audiences, and they smile, too. It doesn’t get any better than that.

I began writing and performing around 10 years ago. I was the classic 9-to-5’er, and my life had become pretty one dimensional. So, for fun, I wrote a few songs, and friends said they were good. Then I started playing open mics and people I didn’t know said the songs were good…quirky, but good. Then, a song I wrote was a winner in the Columbus Bicentennial Song contest. Soon after, I picked up a first-place award in the songwriting category at the Ohio Music Awards, and that was very good.

With my band, The Jeffs, we released three records and played lots of shows. But now I'm now flying solo, performing at clubs and festivals throughout central Ohio. And while I love sharing my songs with audiences, my main passion still lies in songwriting. I’ve posted a few favorites here. I hope they make you smile.
