JEFF BURKETT: MUSICIAN, PRODUCER, AUDIO ENGINEER, BAND LEADER

Jefe Music Group started when I picked up an acoustic guitar over 30 years ago. At that time I started playing for my church youth group in northern California. Shortly after I moved to Austin, TX and have been on the musical warpath ever since. I have played in numerous churches and bands as a bassist, guitarist and band leader including a 2 year stint as a music director of a non-denominational Christian church from 2012 to 2014. In the late 90's I started assembling my studio with a lot of blood, sweat and often times, tears. It has been a labor of love and a passion that never goes away. Throughout my tenure of performing and recording I have had the privilege to work with gifted songwriters, musicians of all types, audio engineers, producers and just all around good people. All of this has come to shape who I am today--a musician and audio producer with a lot of chops, talent and passion to share with people.


The "Group" part of Jefe Music Group is the pool of musicians and engineers that I have worked with over the years. Whenever these highly experienced musicians and music industry savy people are needed to assist in any project they are only a phone call away.


To sum this up I love to work with younger people just starting out to help them learn and get to the next level. I also love working with people that have years of experience. My hope is that we can work together to create something amazing that will reach beyond the walls of this studio to the masses.



God Bless you and keep rockin',


Jeff
