A critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Garland Jeffreys has earned a loyal international audience for his intelligent and passionate songs, informed by a variety of musical styles from rock and R&B to reggae and dance music, and dealing with topics both personal and political, often at the same time. While not especially prolific – he released a mere five studio albums between 1981 and 2011 – Jeffreys’s work reveals a rock & roller’s soul and a poetic sensibility that have earned him the respect of musical peers such as Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen, David Johansen, and John Cale. Fans and newcomers alike can witness this compelling performer take the stage on his 14 Steps to Harlem Tour as it comes to the Tokyo area.
