Album Notes
"Bad Tattoo" is Jeff Talmadge's third CD and his follow up to "The Spinning of the World".

"One of the best of 2001." -- Joe Angel, "Random Routes"

"...clever like Lyle Lovett and introspective like Mickey Newberry." -- Dirty Linen

Since his 1999 debut CD, Secret Anniversaries (described by one reviewer as a “nearly perfect recording”), each of Jeff’s recordings has received extraordinary reviews and extensive radio airplay. Blissville, first released in Europe, debuted at No. 2 on the EuroAmericana Chart and reached No. 1 on the Roots Music Report in the U.S. The Americana audience responded, and Blissville remained on the Americana Chart for three months. His songs have also been recorded by numerous other artists.

His story songs and finger picking guitar style, in the tradition of other well-known Texas songwriters, have been heard on everything from the Judy Collins holiday radio special that aired throughout the U.S. to NPR’s Car Talk. When Gravity, Grace and the Moon was released in 2003 in the U.S. on Bozart Records it was described in SingOut! Magazine as “a masterpiece,” and he was soon signed to Europe-based Corazong Records.

Jeff’s wide-ranging experiences permeate his songs. He has been a janitor, a Capitol Hill Congressional press secretary, an associate baseball scout for a major league team, a published poet, a seminary student, a board-certified lawyer and an award-winning songwriter.

Bad Tattoo was produced by Bradly Kopp.
