“The greatest pleasure I get out of it is playing live,” notes Gaines. “There’s nothing more satisfying to me than a good live concert. I control, but the public can take it to a higher level than I can imagine. When I show up at a live gig, I don’t need much, there’s no pilot. It’s just, turn it on, let the audience in, and we’ll do the rest. It’s the best job anyone can have. »

Jeffrey also recently re-released two poignant selections from his self-titled debut, the hard-hitting “Choices” and “Why?”, which deal with the controversial subject of abortion and gun rights respectively – just weeks after the Supreme Court. revoked the right of American citizens to choose, and just days after the 356th mass shooting (at the time of printing) in the United States in 2022.

Gaines pursued musical transcendence for much of his life. Raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania by soul-loving parents, he began his musical life playing guitar in local cover bands, before his songwriting muse became too pushy to ignore. . He quickly landed his first recording contract shortly after graduating from high school, and in 1992 released his widely acclaimed debut album Jeffrey Gaines. The self-titled disc was acclaimed by critics and the public, giving birth to the hit “Hero in Me”. Somewhat Slightly Dazed (1994) and Galore (1998) further broadened its audience. Interview magazine described Gaines’ work as “introspective” and “refreshingly free of jargon, sentiment or cliché”.

Gaines’ 2001 release Always Be yielded a surprise hit in its deeply felt rendition of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes”; 2003’s Toward the Sun drew even more critical acclaim, with Mojo praising the “sexy soul-folkie growl” and the Boston Globe declaring that Gaines’ “moving, hurtful voice pleads to be one of the best pop singers”. Toward the Sun was followed by two live albums, 2004’s Jeffrey Gaines Live CD/DVD and 2012’s Live in Europe, which reflected Gaines’ deep and lasting connection with his fans. In 2018, Gaines released her eighth studio album, Alright. The album was recorded in Los Angeles with Chris Price, Val McCallum and Elvis Costello’s Imposters, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher.

With over a quarter century of recording and performing under his belt, Jeffrey Gaines is enjoying life and music more than ever. “Today I know what the job is about, so there’s nothing to stress about,” he says. “I know there are people who want it, so I have the opportunity to expand their experience and see that they all tell a story, but personally I prefer to keep looking forward.
