Big Six Consultant
Note: This Jeff Greer is not affiliated with the JGB or the Jeff Greer Band from Virginia. *** Genre-busting recordings of deliciously-crafted songs abound on Jeff Greer's freshman album. A credit to the independent music scene, Jeff supplies 14 tracks that run the gamut from folk to punk, from new wave to country. Fans of non-commercial and college radio will appreciate sonic whiplash: no chance of boredom here! *** Hailing from Texas, Jeff Greer has enjoyed music - and enjoyed making music - all his life. He was a member of Austin 80's cover band Six Figures, and has worked as a deejay at KTRU 91.7 FM Rice Radio in Houston. *** My Texas Music says: 'I will sell you nothing and make you happy you bought it,' croons Jeff Greer on the title track of 'BIG SIX CONSULTANT.' Greer is quick to use a myriad of innovative lyrics like this to get his point across, and he does it quite well. From acoustic offerings to punk-rock feelings like 'Underwear,' Greer finds his way to psychedelic on tunes like 'He Said,' and climbs up on a two-stepper on 'Austin Cowboy.' There's something for everyone on this disc. Greer's influences are wide and varied and he gives you a taste of all of it on this album. A personal favorite is 'Happy Machine Ankle,' probably because some of my heaviest laughing has been done with 'online band name generators.' Get the disc and you'll understand...
