Bio

Jeff Powers

Singer-songwriter Cigar Box Guitar

Playing a gut-bucket slide on his 3-string Cigar Box Guitar while singing and stomping on a tambourine and an old trunk (kick drum), Cleveland native Jeff Powers creates his own “gumbo” styled brand of Roots, Blues and Americana. Powers sounds like Neil Young joined the Black Keys to play a little blues!

Press / Reviews

“Jeff Powers is one of Rockwired’s “25 Guitarists You Gotta Know”…his self-titled release is an engaging listen that will leave the listener amazed at the guitarist’s musicality and virtuosity as well as his tremendous sense of songcraft.” Brian Lush ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE

“Powers has a heavy hand and a sharp axe…his self-titled debut preaches a heady mix of hellfire blues and soul-searching folk, summoning a sound that falls somewhere between Johnny Cash and Johnny Winter.”  CLEVELAND SCENE

"There’s nothing like finding out about a little known but awesome talent and get to be the one telling the world about them. It doesn’t happen very often but, when it does, it’s a real personal treat. This is one of those cases. To put it short and sweet, Jeff Powers is awesome and his new, self-titled CD is an excellent showcase of his incredible talent." Randy Patterson Boomerocity (May 27, 2012)
