This is Jeff’s third Aria win, his first was for his collaboration album with Bob Brozman (USA) on “Rolling Through This World”and his second for the world music project, Djan Djan.
“It was a lovely surprise to win the award considering the strength of the other albums nominated. I found out about it via some Facebook messages whilst attempting to while away the hours of a stopover in Hong Kong on the way home from touring France. The airport food suddenly tasted better and the fluro’ lighting seemed to soften with the news!”
Over the next three months Jeff will be working on the music for upcoming TV Show “Gods Of Wheat Street” and making a few festival appearances before hitting the road in China!
