Jeff Raught

Jeff has been meandering his way through life with songs and stories for many years. Finding the humor in unexpected places and delivering it in a way that only Jeff can. Connecting the dots, or maybe helping to erase them. It is a delightful blend of music that has flavors of blues, gospel and hints of The American Songbook.

For a new twist on some old yarn....

Various ensembles over thirty-ish years.

I play bass guitar (currently a five string "MTD").

I've played in churches (I'm part of a folk group in a Catholic church at present), pubs - nasty and nice, concerts, coffee houses and assorted other environments.

I've played in duos, full bands (three, four, five piece) and other configurations. I've had the good fortune to be part of a number of recording sessions as well.

I play by ear and use chord charts frequently. I am learning to "read" but am at a beginner level in that regard.

There are very few types of music that I don't like. I've played rock, country, gospel, reggae, folk and even some classical at a semi-serious to pretty serious level.

I'm a sucker for a great melody, a cool riff or a worthwhile lyric. If all three elements converge in a song great; I will, however, settle for one or two of them. :-)

strange light

strange light, a wife-husband duo, hails from the Appalachian foothills of Southeastern Ohio. Their original, piano-driven songs braid together influences such as Over the Rhine, Patty Griffin, Tori Amos, and Simon and Garfunkel—while dipping into hymns, celtic and classical music, and musical theater. Athens, Ohio-born Michael Lachman (keyboards, rhythm, vocals) has been a professional dance musician for over a decade and performed for six+ years with the acclaimed roots-rock indie band, Southeast Engine. Becca Rossiter Lachman (vocals, ukulele, keyboards) was raised in Kidron, Ohio and has been performing as a singer-songwriter since the early ‘90s. A choral composer for Heritage Press, she’s penned four original musicals since 1995. The duo recently gave away most of their downstairs furniture to make space for a grand piano.
