Hitting on all cylinders, multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, Jeff Smith, has been skillfully crafting his own songs, as well as performing solo and in The Human Wilderness String Band  for decades. 

Jeff and crew have roamed the Mid-Atlantic  meeting and greeting fans and keeping audiences not only entertained,  as well as informed regarding Jeff's original compositions and eclectic covers. 

A native of Huntington, West Virginia, Jeff found himself in Northern Virginia  punching out rock music, working for a living, while developing his songwriting skills and moving into a different musical direction. 

Listening to his broad spectrum of songs with their various styles, his work isn’t readily pigeon-holed into a single genre. He colors outside the lines with an eclectic mix of tracks that sometimes shuffle along Cajun style, jangle with folk rock, pop, and enrich us with storied accounts that are bound in the new world of Americana-folk, and instrumental musings that are hypnotically captivating, and hip. 

Jeff been placed some of his original compositions in well-known television programs, including Army Wives and The Young and the Restless, an independent murder mystery, "Teach Me Tonight", a European ad campaign for Opel, and most recently in the CBS comedy "Young Sheldon".
