Jeff “jt” Trish, a tunesmith from Adams County, PA, is a seasoned veteran of the road who is now sharing his talent locally. It used to be necessary to travel many miles to schedule gigs that were open to original music, but that has changed. Local venues are springing up all over that embrace originality.
As a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Jeff’s view of art and music are intertwined. In the music world, “covering” other artist’s songs is (or was) required to find local work. But in the art world, painting or drawing someone else’s work would brand the artist a “copycat”. Originality, not a copy, is what you will find in his acoustic rock with a folk, blues edge.
The guitar is the brush, the voice is the paint… jt’s songs are illustrations in words and sound. Take a listen...

“If you haven't heard any of Jeff's music, you're missing out. This guy has hours of excellent original music, and his strong, beautiful honeyed voice... this old-school, motorcycle ridin', songwritin' dude from a little further south is a real talent and real treat. ”
