I first heard Jeff play when he was about 12 years of age and was overwhelmed by his formidable gift. He soon became a great friend and played on many of our Couriers’ recording sessions. Jeff is a man with a heart for God and a passion for excellence in his innovative, imaginative, inspirational and artistic music. ” - Neil Enloe, Composer of the Dove Award winning song, The Statue of Liberty, and long time lead vocalist for the legendary Couriers.
