Welcome to JEFFYOUNGER.NET , home of Vancouver, BC based guitarist/composer Jeff Younger.  Jeff just returned from a 5 week tour of Europe that included solo shows and performances with some of Europe’s finest improvisers in Berlin, Amsterdam, Helsinki and Stockholm. There are a couple of composition commissions brewing, and he and the extraordinary vocalist Viviane Houle are starting collaboration on a long form work for voice and chamber nonet.  He’ll be recording two new cds for release in 2016 with his main original projects: the slamming, contemporary jazz band The Unsupervised and his internationally recognized solo project Jeff Younger’s Devil Loops.  And if last year is any indication, he’ll play in the neighborhood of 120 gigs from now until the new year.  Check the GIGS page for upcoming and recent shows, hit us up on the CONTACT page to join the mailing list, and come to a gig to check out the music and say “hi!”  It’s gonna be a hell of a year.

“Jeff Younger is a workaholic super genius musician freak.”
