Biography

The Jeffery Brothers

The Jeffery Brothers Band's debut EP, Splitting Headache, produced by Mark Berry (Headstones, Killjoys), hearkens back to an era of straight-up rock that existed before twins Josh and Nick Jeffery were even born. From the boisterous rock of "Splitting Headache" to the acoustic-based ballad, "Wishing," the trio, rounded out with bassist Andrew Hurst, delivers radio-ready rock.

"We were introduced to rock music back in the day," says 22-year-old frontman Josh. "My dad was a big Rolling Stones fan. We started to listen to his records and then got stuff from my uncles. AC/DC was the next big influence, then George Thorogood, ZZ Top, Molly Hatchet - we like the rock."

Born in Midland, Ontario, a small town north of Toronto, The Jeffery Brothers started working on original music when they were still in high school. The reason was simple: "it beats work," Josh laughs. "you get to see the world and meet new people, The initial plan was for Nick to play guitar and Josh to handle drums, but Nick beat him to the kit in grade 10. Besides, Josh had already pick up guitar a year earlier. "Neither of us took lessons," says Josh. "We used our own judgement on how to play." Josh would also sing. "Nicky's not the singing type," Josh explains.

The two not only entered school talent shows, but also played in their school band, The Academy Of Funk, and various others. Their music teacher, Mr. Henry, who had once worked with Vancouver's Grapes of Wrath, had a small eight-track recording studio in class, and allowed the students to demo. They also hooked up with a local studio called Mr. Digital. After recording some throwaway demos early in their band life, Nick contacted a friend in Nashville, TN, for some production reels. The most impressive, says Josh, belonged to Mark Berry, an American who had done aconsiderable amount of work in Canada in the nineties.

Checking into Toronto's Zolis Audio, with Berry and engineer Jim Zolis, The Jeffrey Brothers Band didn't have a third member, so they played all the parts
themselves - Josh on lead vocals, guitar and bass; and Nick on drums and background vocals.

They brought in five songs. The lead track, "Splitting Headache," has a distinctly old-school rock vibe, complete with guitar solo. "It's about everyday life -- just people bugging you," says Josh.

"Rock It Out," is self-explanatory, an upbeat song about having a good time, while "Flyin' High," is another happy tune. The ladies are drawn to the acoustic-based "Wishing", says Josh, and "Feelin' Fine" he penned about his "own feelings toward his
girlfriend."

The Jeffery Brothers added 20-year-old Andrew Hurst in the late 2003, after the completion of the Splitting Headache EP. And in the great tradition of Rush, The Tea Party and other famous Canadian rock acts, the line-up will remain a trio. Why?" We've had countless rhythm guitar players and they never worked"

Armed with the debut EP, The Jeffery Brothers Band has already started playing live in Ontario and will be hitting the road this summer for a cross-Canada tour.

Lyrics

Splitting Headache

Written By: Josh Jeffery

Well I got a splitting headache
Ya my temper is 104
Well I'm so damn tired
I'm going to drop to the floor
I've tried everything from A-Z
But nothing wants to work
Nothing wants to work for me

Fallin' down can't get back up again
I've tried everything but I'm out of luck again

I was thinkin' about you
That's how it started
First I got the splitting headache
Then my temper got hotter
Got so tired
I just drop to the floor
I can't move my body
I can't move anymore

Fallin' down can't get back up again
I've tried everything but I'm out of luck again

Feelin' Fine

Written By: Josh Jeffery

Feelin' Fine

I want to hold you
And never let you go
Baby I miss you
Baby I just want to let you know
Baby the moon is full tonight
Honey the stars ya are shinning bright
I got you in my mind
Baby all the time

And I'm feelin' fine
And I'm feelin' fine
And I'm feelin' fine

I think of you night and day
And all the things you say
I know that they're all true
That's the reason that I love you

Baby the moon is full tonight
Honey the stars are shining bright
I got you in my mind
Baby all the time
And I'm feelin' fine
And I'm feelin' fine
And I'm feelin' fine
And I'm feelin' fine
And I'm feelin' fine

Baby the moon is full tonight
Honey the stars ya are shinning bright
I got you in my mind
Baby all the time

Rock It Out

Written By: Josh Jeffery


You got to let it go
You got to shout it out
You got to let them know
What it's all about
So shake it down
Shout it out
Tell all your friends
To rock it out

Rock it out
You got to have some fun
You got to rock it out
You got to tell every one

You got to give it up
You got to bring it down
You got to make it go
Round and round
So let's kick it up
Kick it down
Shout out
And give it out round

Rock it out
You got to have some fun
You got to rock it out
You got to tell every one
