Back In A Quiet Groove...New Project In The Works


After a significant period of reflection, I have a new project in the works for early 2016.  Now titled “Pop Song,” the new CD will feature new songs highlighting vocals, acoustic guitar and pure pop songwriting as I celebrate the spirit of the music that I performed when entering the music scene in the 1970s and 1980s. 


Three Summer Shows at Luigi’s...All Sold Out


I want to thank everyone who came out to one (or more!) of our three summer Sunday shows at Luigi’s in downtown Royal Oak.  Owner Luigi Cutraro created a very special place for me to share my music...and the sold out listening room made it even more amazing for myself and the band.  We’re working on fall and winter shows and should make an announcement soon. 


Successful benefit and Majestic show close 2012...first show of 2013 announced


With the successful launch of The Long Way Home, Jeff chose to close out 2012 with two extraordinary performances.  First was a special benefit for Jennifer Christiansen at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, MI, as Jeff offered a powerful, four-song set with the band.  And last was a full set at The Majestic Cafe in Detroit in support of Ann Delisi’s Essential Music Listening Party that was called “amazing” by multiple attendees.  


With the passing of his father, Gerald Scott, on November 17, Jeff is now focused on spending time with his family and continuing to write new songs, while booking new performances for the new year.  The first has already been secured:  a three-bill concert at The Magic Bag in Ferndale, MI on Friday, January 25, featuring Stewart Francke, Jeff and Carolyn Striho.

In between, Jeff will perform solo at the Golden Dragon on Friday, October 12, in support of John and Melinda Montgomery’s efforts to raise capital to re-open their beloved restaurant and music venue in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.


Finally, Jeff’s “In California” remains in rotation on Ann Delisi’s Essential Music show on Saturdays and Sundays on WDET-FM 101.9 in metro Detroit.
