Jeff Black

It’s surprising that Kansas City native son turned Nashville notable Jeff Black remains a relatively anonymous figure, even with credentials that include sharing the studio and stage with the likes of Wilco, newgrass pioneer Sam Bush and rebel troubadour Steve Earle. As an industry outsider, Black has enough talent to be an insider and enough common sense to remain a dark horse. Black’s knack for crafting lyrics that tend to rattle around a listener’s head for days at a time, coupled with an ability to jump styles with ease, has made him a hot underground commodity as both a songwriter and a performer. And even though most locals may not remember Black, he hasn’t forgotten us; his upcoming performance at Davey’s Uptown marks the official release of his latest disc, the potently crafted Tin Lily.
