CMW - Jeff Eager
Canadian Music Week is coming up and we had a chance to chat with some of the bands! We met Jeff Eager at an abandoned Coffee Shop and chatted about Canadian Music Week.
1: Describe your sound for those who haven’t heard you?
Vintage soulful pop/rock. It's classic song-writing from the golden age of analog music that stretches from blue-eyed soul to yacht rock to funk. The music sits comfortably in your record collection next to Prince, Hall & Oates, Chicago and Elton John; your CD collection with the Philosopher Kings and Lenny Kravitz, or in your Spotify playlist with Allen Stone and Harry Styles.
2: What is your favourite part of Canadian Music Week?
I've lived in and around Toronto for many years. While there's always things happening here, there is a special energy around CMW. It's great to see the venue doors open, the streets filled with people from all over the country, and the sounds of original live music.
3: Who is one of your favourite local bands?
Blackburn Brothers ... genuine soul, funk, blues ... and with the horn section added, it's a party!
4: Whats coming up for you?
After releasing a few singles this past year (the first original Eager material since 2016!) ... I am thrilled to be launching the full album this summer. Come and see me at Canadian Music Week 2023 and grab the limited edition vinyl. I'm excited for you all to hear it!
5: Where can people find you? What are your social media links?
I am most active on instagram and youtube:
But it's always best to come and say hi at a live show. All my upcoming dates can be found on jeffeagermusic.com
