Garland JeffreysGarland Jeffreys bas been called an edgy poet, the sound of New York, a confessional singer-songwriter, and an explorer of the links between rock, race, and rebellion whose work should be taught in schools.  He’s played with Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, Dr. John and Levon Helm, and Bob Marley called him, “the only American who can really sing reggae.”  One of his best known songs, “Wild in the Streets” became a punk anthem after it was covered by the Circle Jerks in the early 1980s.

After a string of records in the 1970s and 80s he took a 13-year-long break from recording and touring until he released critically acclaimed The King of In Between in 2011.  Garland’s newest album, Truth Serum, is winning praise for its earthy, incisive lyrics and solid, bluesy rhythms. At 70 years old he’s still a force on stage, blending recent songs with favorites from his formidable back catalog.  For a chance to hear one of New York’s finest rock ‘n’ roll poets, catch Garland Jeffreys at the Freight.
