Jeff Pitchell reminds many fans of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, BB King...but most of all is a top drawing, best selling artist whose explosive guitar playing and impassioned vocals have drawn rave reviews from fans and critics in the USA and Europe alike for simply playing music that Jeff himself has written in the rock/blues genre. Jeff has won awards for "best singer" "best songwriter" "best guitarist" but the "proof of the pudding" is who Jeff has played with "toe to toe" and who he is currently performing with....a man who has sold 10s of millions of CDs and recognized as one of the best guitarists ever J Geils, Rock Hall of Fame nominee. has been nominated for ! Jeff was also asked by the movie star James Woods to read a script for a new movie and write songs for that script, which he did, and some of these songs will be on the new CD to be release in 2Q12 entiltled American Girl! J Geils has been quoted on the radio as saying "Jeff Pitchell can play the guitar and sing among the best in the country."
What we believe sets Jeff apart from most others..is (1) his dynamic stage presence and (2) national recognition shown by Jeff's Heavy Hitter CD (Pyramid/EMI) being listed on the national Billboard Charts as #7 for 12 weeks and the majority of the songs were written by Jeff (3) Jeff having the capability to adapt his performances to the type of audience he is perfoming for (spectacular theatre show, danceable and singable, background, etc.!) and (4) Jeff winning two song writing awards from the Great American Song Contest and the International Songwriting Contest (ISC) where one of the judges, John Mayall, renowned blues legend, now includes in his World Tour one of Jeff's songs "An Eye for an Eye" and hasl recorded this song on his latest CD and to add to Jeff's honors. he has been contacted many times to be a special guest of another legend...BB King! In addition, Jeff has formed a "special" band to play at various times which consists of Tommy Shannon, founding member of Stevie Ray Vaughan abd Double Trouble, Storyville, and the Arc Angels, Simon Kirke, founding member of Bad Company, Free, and touring member of the Beatles' Ringo Starrs' ALL-STARR band, and Joe Bouchard, founding member of Blue Oyster Cult!
Jeff has appeared on national TV and radio, being asked by the Boston Red Sox to sing and play at Fenway Park, and being asked to appear on the Don Imus MNBC television and radio show.
