Jeff Acker is a singer songwriter from Rochester NY. He picked up a guitar in 2009 and taught himself to play by writing songs. After a year, he shared a couple of the songs he wrote with a close friend who encouraged him to share his music at a local open mic, and from there, he began frequenting them, often patronizing 5 or 6 open mics per week.
As his portfolio of original music grew, Jeff met other musicians, and eventually helped form the band Last Minute, which became an outlet for him to showcase his original songs. During that same time he was also the backup vocalist for the band Right Turn Racer. The two bands shared three members so they regularly played shows together.
When members of the bands moved out of the state, Jeff used this opportunity to work on performing as a soloist as well as an acoustic trio, playing a combination of the songs he’s written with a mixture of cover songs from all decades and genres. He can be found performing in many venues around the county and outlying areas, and is currently working on an album, due for release in late 2016.
