Growing up on the outskirts of a dying auto industry, Jeb listened to the pop, rock and R&B sounds filtering across the Detroit river on Windsor, Ontario’s CKLW-AM. From this, he knew early on in life that he had to write his own songs. By age twelve he had picked up his first guitar and and was playing with rock bands in bars by fifteen. After high school, Jeb found himself drawn to the desert just north of Tucson where he was first exposed to the sounds of western, rootsy music.
The inevitable quest for fame, or at least the opportunity to find the garage door opener, led Jeb and his rock band to Los Angeles where they landed several industry deals that never quite saw the light of day. While all this was going on, Jeb began to produce other artists. But the drive to write his own songs remained strong, and he formed a band with Solomon Burke, Jr., whose music he still produces. Around 2007, Jeb finally made the leap of putting out his own records.
Jeb loves everything outdoors, and when he's not writing, performing or producing music you can find him in the great outdoors, hiking, fly-fishing, skiing, camping, bird hunting, and generally looking for adventure.
