Garland Jeffreys

Event Date: 
Sunday, September 29, 2013 - 4:30pm
Venue: 

The King Of In Between is the work of a mature artist and the distillation of Garland Jeffreys’ long career dedicated to addressing socially conscious themes across a broad range of musical styles.

He’s 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 whose work should be taught in schools.

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

“Had he been born earlier, Mr. Jeffreys could have had a career as a jazz singer…had he been born later, he might have been a peer to Citizen Cope and Ben Harper, who mix up their playlists and benefit from followings not bound by the dictates of radio.” — Wall Street Journal

“I’ve always been hard to slot, I guess,” says Jeffreys. “These songs were written over a few years and it wasn’t until the album was finished that I realized they all talk about disenfranchisement, of feeling marginalized in some way or another. That’s the meaning of the title. It doesn’t pertain only to being biracial, though that will always be a part of who I am, but to how many people around the world today feel like they’re literally falling through the cracks.”

Co-produced by Larry Campbell (Grammy-winning producer with Levon Helm), The King Of In Between marks a return to the more rootsy sounds of Jeffreys’ earlier work, especially his acclaimed 1977 album Ghost Writer. 

“I’m at a wonderful point in my life. I couldn’t be happier with the new record. It’s been a labor of love and it’s completely true to me, a real reflection of everything I stand for.” http://garlandjeffreys.com
