In 2003, with producer Joe Smith (NSync, Mandy Moore) at the helm, he produced and released his first solo CD featuring his distinctively powerful voice through soaring melodies and solid songwriting. The rich sounds of Jeff’s music solidly found their place on the Pop and Rock airwaves as many songs received spins on over 60 Top 40/AC stations across the country, as well as XM Radio.
After many packed shows at venues such as Hard Rock Live, House of Blues & SunFest, Jeff has established himself as a prominent force not only in the Florida music scene, but nationally as well winning accolades from Songwriters Showcase of America.

Jeff's National TV appearances include NBC's "StarTomorrow", "The Daily Buzz" on the CW Network and performing the National Anthem at several Orlando Magic games and Atlanta Braves spring training games. The undeniable heart-and-soul of this talented artist is evermore present in his music. "Music is the backdrop to our lives and I hope that my music can affect people. I don't want to sound like everybody else, and I certainly don't want every song I play to be more of the same thing. For me, the more curves there are on the road ………....... the more fun it is to drive."
Jeff Coffey … An artist not to be missed!
