ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

The latest CD by Singer/Songwriter Jeff Pike finds him returning to his roots as a musician and a songwriter. On this intimate and aptly named CD, "Back To Basics", you will find no drums, no elaborate studio production, and no fancy overdubs. What you will find are simple, emotional, vulnerable and honest recordings by an extremely versatile musician returning home to the music that comes from his soul. Just Jeff, his voice, his guitar and his piano. Those who follow Jeff's career and appreciate his original music have been anticipating and asking for this CD for years. Well, the wait is over. On "Back To Basics" Jeff has taken some of his most popular songs along with several unreleased compositions and given them new acoustic arrangements. The result is a raw and introspective album of music that listeners will relate to.

Jeff is best known since 1992 as the founder and lead singer of "A1A - The Official and Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show." However this new CD, like all of his original work outside of A1A, shows an entirely different side of Jeff and his music. "Back to Basics" is an opportunity for Jeff to express a more personal and vulnerable side of his life. He will not be retiring from his position in A1A, but rest assured you will be seeing and hearing a lot more of his solo work from this point forward. If you haven't heard any of Jeff's original music, now is the time. If you think you know Jeff as a musician and songwriter through A1A and Trop Rock, take a good listen to "Back To The Basics." We guarantee your viewpoint will change.

WHAT LISTENERS ARE SAYING ABOUT JEFF PIKE

"While photographing Jeff at a house concert in 2012, one of the guests remarked to Jeff: "You sing from your soul." And when that was said, I was finally able to put words to what I was hearing and seeing. Jeff does sing from his soul, but it’s more than that to me. He performs from his soul. You simply have to see him live; the stories, the feeling, the music - it’s a one of a kind experience." David Byrd - Dreamstate Photography

I have been listening to Jeff Pike for almost 20 years now. I have heard every permutation of his music and enjoyed each one. Not only is Jeff an accomplished musician, he is a songwriter of the first order. Being able to paint a picture with words and music is his gift and we all benefit from it. I have heard Jeff play in front of a cheering crowd, in restaurants and bars of many varieties, festivals, house concerts and even just sitting on the couch - each venue is special in its own way. I encourage anyone to hear Jeff whenever possible; it is an experience that you won't forget. – Michael Troglin

"I came across Jeff's music a couple of years ago and fell in love with it. His musical style takes me back to the popular music of my teenage years, back in the 1970's and the days of Dan Fogelberg, Elton John, and Chicago. His music has a way of reaching down into the heart and making a connection there, as well as having a beat so lively that makes you want to dance. I went to a concert of his a week ago at this writing and I am still living off the "mountain top" experience that I had there." – Dennis Swint

Amazing! Excellent! Beautiful Voice! Very talented artist! Sings from his heart! Loved Fade Away and Robbie!! - Connie Martenson

You have a beautiful voice! It is so smooth, melodic. Awesome songs. I appreciate your honesty about your life experiences and successes! - Ellen Frei

Beautiful voice, good interaction with audience. Honest, kind soul. - Marty Berg

Love your voice. Great stage act. Great music and stories. - Jim Martenson

Awesome!!! No other words. - Debra Behm

Attending a Jeff Pike Home Concert was like adding "class" to our life. It was an intimate, inspirational and fun night to spend with friends. – Joan & Jerry Cochrane

Jeff Pike House Concerts are an experience in themselves. It's a journey through Jeff's musical inspirations as he shares the background stories of many original songs. The intimate setting of a house concert allowed us to really get to know Jeff and his music, which proved to be an incredible evening. Tammy Camp - Trop Rockin' Online Magazine

Jeff Pike and his musical career has been a big part of my life for about 25 years now. Through that time I have watched fans of all ages enjoy the diversity of his music. He has an uncanny knack of drawing you into his world through lyrics and melodies that will reach into your very soul and grab you. Ever since the release of his first solo album "Waiting for the Fire" I have looked forward to each new entry into his musical journal. From songs such as "Midwinter Wind" to "There's an App For that", his music has reached many different audiences the world over and I firmly believe that his popularity will only get bigger and better! - J-Anne Mize
