An absolutely incredible group of people, there is never a time when I am not in a good mood while listening to their stuff .

They are all amazingly talented but Jeff is as good as it gets, he can do it all and his live performances stand by themselves . His ability to includes strings in so much of his music speaks to his writing and his production abilities .

He also seems like a person that is very well grounded and not in any arrogant .
