Jeff Root is an independent recording artist/engineer/producer,
who writes, performs and produces his own music. Jeff was a founding member
of the Boston band Hot Dates, an integral part of the Boston New Wave scene,
which scored several top hits in the early 80s. The current band's critically
acclaimed sound has been described as "Avant-garde... Indescribable...
Experimental brilliance...", "Very well written songs that have a ton of
substance..", "a beautifully strange rock and roll singer-songwriter".
Jeff has collaborated with and/or shared the stage with Kink's Ray Davies
and Dave Davies, The Yardbirds, Leon Redbone, The Tubes, Edgar Winter and
comedy writers Martin Olson and Steven Wright.
