"..a musician who's only getting better at what he does.”
?- Eric R. Danton (WSJ/Rolling Stone/Paste/Pitchfork)
I've been singing and performing professionally for over twenty years. In that time I've played close to 2000 shows from Maine to Montana. I am able to mix many different genres, from Rock to Country, and have over 1000 songs in my repertoire. I'm also a recording artist with three records under my belt, available on all streaming platforms. I am experienced, professional, and reliable, and have played everywhere from kindergarten classrooms to nursing homes. I can truly say I offer something for everyone.
Jeff Przech (“Presh”) has been singing and performing professionally for over twenty years. In that time he’s played close to 2000 shows from Maine to Montana. Przech’s music crosses genres and resists labels, shown very clearly by the sonic variety in his first two releases, 2015’s Sounds Like Fresh and 2018’s Jeff Przech & The Outfit. In fact, if one were to ask Przech what kind of music he writes and sings, he probably couldn’t tell you. “That’s really up to the listener to decide,” he says. “I’m a rock guy at heart, but my music has been called a lot of different things by a lot of different people. As for me, I’ve always had one goal when it comes to making music - I just chase the sounds I hear in my head.”
Those sounds and Przech’s cross-genre versatility will be audibly clear on his three separate and distinct upcoming releases. The first, a four-song Country-esque EP, gives a nod to his affinity for the Studio A sound of the classic country music of the 1970s with songs featuring mostly acoustic guitars and accented by pedal steel. The second is a six-song collection of material from his debut record, reimagined and rerecorded to better reflect who Przech is as an artist today. The final EP will be six brand-new tracks that showcase his stylistic diversity while leaning hard toward his rock roots.
Przech’s songs and style have elicited comparisons to the likes of Gregg Allman, John Mellencamp, Tom Petty, and Chris Stapleton, among others. In 2023 his songwriting has been recognized both regionally and nationally. His song “Maribelle,” from the Outfit record, was chosen for the Essential Western New England Songbook, which the curators call a “listenable juried anthology of 200 of the best songs ever written by artists who’ve lived in Western New England and whose careers have a significant connection to the area. A virtual “Hall of Fame” of original songs.” Meanwhile, “Eden,” from the Sounds Like Fresh record, was featured this season on the ABC drama Big Sky. Przech’s music has always relied on narrative songwriting and soulful, emotive vocals. The songs themselves deal with struggle and the human condition, topics relatable to just about anyone, and while listeners may not have walked in the shoes of his narrators, they can surely empathize with the plights of the characters.
"Przech is as Americana as they come and it’s not a dirty word to throw the country moniker around. If Przech’s influences were trees he’d have an entire orchard full of some of the greats of the traditional and alt-country movements, as well as varying forms of folk and Americana."
