ABOUT

It is not known if Jeff Vinson was born with a desire to make music and a passion for music or if it was something acquired along the way. His family was not musically inclined, however he was fascinated by a neighboring family who all played. By the age of ten, he knew he wanted to play guitar and restrung his brother’s old discarded guitar and began trying to learn.

By the age of 15, his passion to play guitar had only intensified and he got his first guitar and started taking lessons. He always had a desire to be the very best, most proficient player he could be. He spent the next few years practicing and jamming with friends and for a while was content with this level of playing.

That contentment with the status quo was not to last. By 2002, Jeff found his desire to excel, to keep pushing to be the very best guitarist rekindled, and again began putting in long hours of practice daily. This determination, this passion to consistently improve and push his proficiency to the next level was so intense, he was never satisfied with his playing, but constantly striving to improve. Jeff feels there is always something new to learn, that mastering the guitar is a never ending journey, but so fascinating and fulfilling.

Jeff spent a few years as lead guitarist with “The Warning”, a Tupelo, MS based Christian Metal Band, a year as bass player for a Van Halen tribute band and is currently playing bass for “Allison’s Rage”, a New Albany, MS classis rock band.

In keeping with his desire to attain the next level of proficiency in making music, Jeff has spent the past two years recording a CD of guitar-based instrumentals. His expertise now includes the writing and arranging of the music. Jeff plays all instruments himself and orchestrates the recording of the music. Some of his songs can be heard on his page or .
