A little bit about Jeff Pike…
Be it through his intimate compositions or the words and music of others, entertaining and connecting deeply with an audience is Jeff’s passion and his gift. Having received nods in comparison to modern-day recording artists such as Josh Groban and Jason Mraz, and classic singer/songwriter/entertainers like Kenny Loggins, Dan Fogelberg, Jimmy Buffett and Elton John, Jeff’s performances are intimate, impulsive, and fun. Jeff has a strong sense of humor, stage presence, and a caring personality that naturally tends to draw people into his performance and the moment.
Atlanta native Jeff Pike has been a working musician and entertainer all his professional life. He was singing at a very young age and studying guitar by the age of 10.
