Montana singer/songwriter Jeff Carroll's guitar playing is deeply rooted in Country Blues, Americana, and old-timey Bluegrass. His distinct approach to original and traditional music has been crafted through hundreds of live shows, thousands of miles on the road, and a genuine love and appreciation of American roots music and culture. It is a music at once familiar and unique, old and new, raw and refined.
As a solo artist, he has shared the stage with several national touring acts including Waterloo Revival, The Cadillac Three, Bones Owens, Logan Mize, and The Quaker City Night Hawks.
Many area live music enthusiasts recognize him as a founding member and bassist of The Cold Hard Cash Show (from 2005-2010), a popular Johnny Cash tribute band. Carroll played nearly 200 shows with the group, sharing the stage with a variety of artists including John Anderson, Eddie Money, Tim Montana, Juice Newton, and Darryl Worley. He also appeared with them on The Late Show with David Letterman (at the legendary Ed Sullivan Theater) in November of 2008.
Before his experience with the Cold Hard Cash Show, he played mainly with Even Odds -an improvisational guitar and sax duo -described by Don't Panic Productions promoter Mark Turner as a "hybrid fusion of jazz, funk, R&B, and rock... in the truest folk tradition."
