Formed in 2006, the band consists of Jacob Jeffries (vocals, piano), Jimmy Powers (electric guitar, backing vocals) and Eric Jackowitz (drums, backing vocals). Life as an Extra, the first CD by Jacob Jeffries Band was released in the beginning of 2008. The second project, Wonderful, was released a year later. In September of 2009, the Jacob Jeffries Band was invited to the highly esteemed Full Sail University for an all expense paid recording of their first LIVE CD, Waiting for the Piano Movers. The talented group was named 2008's "Best Live Band & Best New Release" by the Broward-Pam Beach and Miami New Times, and were selected to perform in, and won the Florida Grammy Showcase. Most recently, Jacob Jeffries won the coveted Nationals Singer Songwriter Shoot-Out at the renowned Eddie's Attic in Atlanta. Previous winners of the competition include John Mayer and The Indigo Girls.
Since the band's formation, the young, independent act has been getting the good word out ceaselessly writing, recording and hitting the road with four U.S. tours of the northeast, southeast and midwest, and regularly playing the New York City and south Florida music scene. Some of the band's stops on the road include appearances at the NAMM Conference for Baldwin Pianos in Anaheim, CA, BMI's Leaf Lounge during the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT, and at SXSW for BMI's Acoustic Brunch and the Red Gorilla Festival in Austin, TX.
