Jeff White Returns to the Sheeley House Saloon
The Sheeley House Saloon welcomes local favorite Jeff White. Come early for an incredible chef inspired meal and stay for the music of Jeff White.
Americana/Alt-country/Folk from the hills of Western Wisconsin. Blending warm tones, reverbs, delays & vibrato with outlaw grit, Jeff White sings of love, loss & lust with an Americana vibe.
Jeff began honing his songwriting skills working the red-eye shift as a taxi driver. Railroad conductors, heartbroken men & women after bar close and wild out-of-towners were all frequent riders who freely opened up about their personal lives. Their late night conversations were all inspirations to the genesis of his upcoming career as a songwriter and entertainer.
Jeff has toured the lower 48 from coast to coast as well as England, Scotland and Wales. Much in the vein of Johnny Cash, Jeff writes his own songs but also performs unique interpretations of other songs he admires. He's opened up for Dr. John, Mason Jennings, Tony Jackson, members of Wilco, Joe Pug, Bernie Sanders, Hymn For Her, Bill Staines and has performed along side Phil Vassar and Sam Amidon. Justin Vernon of Bon Iver fame was once Jeff's lead guitar player in Jeff White & The Front Porch. His song, Please Come Back To Me was the intro theme song to Spectrum West, Wisconsin Public Radio as well as being featured in the movie, Illegal Use Of Joe Zopp and the TV show, Discover Wisconsin. His music is regularly played on Converge Radio 99.9FM. He's opened one of his tours at the legendary Big Top Chautauqua and has 6 studio albums under his belt. One album is with Charlie Parr & folk music legend Greg Brown titled, Barn Aid – Down In The Valley. His latest CD, Renegade Revelations, recently received a 4 star rating in The Netherlands on the alt-country review website, altcountry.nl.
