If when you hear Al Green, Otis Redding, Sam Cook or BB King, you imagine Memphis, walking 10’ feet off of Beale St. and “The Muscle Shoals Fame Recording Studio”, think again. “Jeff Woods Southern Soul” has a heart beating for American pop music as his performance is a kind of rebirthing of where all that sound was born. When asked why he plays this style of music? “It’s got something to do with the groove, and it’s got something to do with the soul”. Jeff says “Music can touch you deep in your soul”. His belief is ”that when you find that great groove, and at that moment this beat reaches out and touches the soul, that’s how we do it, that’s where we got it. We get everyone in the room into that same groove and that’s when the soul magic happens”. He’s had something going on musically since age 7 when…. Self-taught himself on guitar in 1963 and then was featured in a band at age 12 called “Soul Syndicate” and then moving on to “The Ezra Brooks Band” at age 14 playing soul music in the sixties breaking ground in pop music. Jeff Woods Southern Soul now plays local venues/music fests/concerts to date in what is called southern soul/Jazz music that allows him to share and give back a beautiful love of American music.
