Brooklyn-born rock/reggae/blues and soul singer Garland Jeffreys is a true legend, as recognized by his recent induction into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
Garland emerged on the music scene in the early 70’s with a much-heralded debut album and went on to record the seminal Ghost Writer album which sees the 40th anniversary of its release this year. That album included the FM radio anthem “Wild In the Streets.” recently featured on the soundtrack of “The Get Down.” His song “Matador” won Garland a passionate following in Europe, making him an international recording star. He recorded five additional albums into the 1980’s but except for 1992’s DON’T CALL ME BUCKWHEAT, Jeffreys did not release another U.S. album of original songs until 2011.
Since then, he has been on a creative roll releasing two acclaimed albums of original songs (THE KING OF IN-BETWEEN and TRUTH SERUM) in one of contemporary music’s most amazing comebacks. His return to recording and performing has seen him headline shows in the U.S. and in Europe as a shining moment in a career that has earned him the respect of musical peers like Bruce Springsteen, David Johansen, Lou Reed and John Cale.
