As far back as his memory recalls, country singer/songwriter Jeff Stauffer remembers music being an integral part of his life. Growing up in northern Ohio, he was introduced to instruments by his grandfather who would “put a guitar in his hands every time he came for a visit.” Playing and singing came naturally and quickly for him and performance came soon after. Together with his two brothers, he formed a band and toured locally on a regular basis.
Success has found Jeff in the last few years thanks to social media allowing him to explore his creativity. He has created multiple content series’ which have accumulated more than 2 million likes and 150 thousand followers across all his social channels. If you’re familiar with Jeff’s socials, you probably found yourself asking “What do Jeff Stauffer and Britney Spears have in common?” Max Martin’s smash hit “Baby One More Time” of course! In January of 2023, Jeff released his own version of the late-90’s iconic pop song by adding his own country twist. This release gained the attention of many around the music industry including country music’s own Whiskey Riff. Giving nothing but high praise, Whiskey Riff made sure to note they might prefer Jeff’s take over the original.
When not blowing up the internet or reminding all of us of our childhood crushes, Jeff has been busy releasing his own music. October of 2022 saw the release of his debut, self-titled album, Jeff Stauffer. With singles like “Hooked”, “Are You Thinking ‘bout Me” and “Tailgate Kinda Day”, Jeff set out to prove that he’s here to stay. Not only catching the attention of those 150,000+ followers with this release, he has also hit the radar of Boots of Europe, who not only posted a raving review of “Hooked” but also played much of his album on Country Radio UK—streaming over all of Europe. Jeff has also appeared on multiple podcasts including Outside the Circle Podcast. After his second appearance on the show with them they had some big words to say, “Country music was going to be left with a big hole once George Strait finally hangs it up. That was until Jeff Stauffer came along. On a record shelf, Stauffer will sit next to Strait for good reason for years to come!”
The combination of Jeff’s contemplative songwriting and rich, deep vocals has created a unique country sound that captures the hearts and emotions of the listeners. With experience recording in Nashville, Jeff continues to bring new, fresh music that has been inspired by his heritage and way of life… in the country… in mid-Ohio.
Jeff Stauffer, the debut album is available now on all streaming platforms.
