After years of supporting many great Canadian artists, Alan Jeffries’ debut album has finally arrived. Coffee ‘til Midnight is not the romantic pursuit of an urban folkie, it is the product of someone who has grown up on the sounds and traditions of bluegrass music.
Alan Jeffries was raised on bluegrass. He spent the summers of his youth playing at bluegrass festivals around the Maritimes with his father. In 2005, Alan was named the Atlantic Canada Bluegrass and Oldtime Music Association’s Bluegrass Guitar Player of the Year. He has since ventured into many different styles of music, playing with several artists all around the world. Alan missed the adrenaline rush of playing and singing the old, up-tempo bluegrass songs that he loved. So, he returned to his roots in order to launch his solo career and debut album.
Coffee ‘til Midnight’s ten tracks walk a fine line between traditional and progressive bluegrass sounds. Joining Alan on this album are some of the finest bluegrass musicians that Canada has to offer. The manner in which Jeffries and company play off each other and deliver their music is an energetic and satisfying experience. Coffee ‘til Midnight is an album with a timeless sound for an ageless crowd.
