Garland Jeffreys

The King Of In Between is the work of a mature artist and the distillation of Garland Jeffreys’ long career dedicated to addressing socially conscious themes across a broad range of musical styles.

He’s been called an edgy urban 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.

With songs covered by artists as diverse as punk pioneers The Circle Jerks (“Wild in the Streets”) and the neo-folk band Vetiver (“Lon Chaney”), Jeffreys is truly unclassifiable.

Roots of Songwriting Musical Discussion with Scott Alarik

With live music, archival recordings and stories, author-folksinger Alarik reveals how professional songwriting grew from the musical traditions of ordinary people, from folk ballads to medieval broadsides, parlor songs to pop tunes. Along the way, he asks what makes a song last, how lyrics are different than poems, the origins of imagery, metaphor, and symbolism, and what the greatest songwriters say about the power of song.
