Born in Niagara Falls, Jeff Orson received his first guitar as a Christmas gift at the age of six. An older cousin who was also interested in music gave Jeff some basic instruction and left him to it. He continued to play sporadically over the next three decades.
In the early spring of 2014, Jeff was diagnosed with colon cancer. After getting over the initial shock and unsure of the prognosis at the time, Jeff once again turned to writing music for solace. A hospital custodian heard him playing from his bed during his recovery and urged him to take his music to the world. One song seemed to lead to another and before long he had a catalogue of over 100.
After receiving a clean bill of health, Jeff’s story was featured in the Toronto Star followed by a bio segment on @Home TV.
Playing at shows followed, mainly open mics, house parties, and other venues where a small but loyal following began to emerge.

Since then Jeff has featured in Singapore, Sweden, France, New York, Ireland and England, as well as many shows in Canada. In February 2016 Jeff released his first EP entitled “California”. Most recently Jeff headlined at The Horseshoe Tavern where his performance was recorded and is now being produced into a live album with video for release soon.
