Guitarist/composer Jeff O’Brien has been performing and teaching professionally for over twenty years. Jeff earned his B.M. in Jazz Composition at Berklee College of Music, studying with David Newsam, Brett Wilmott, Bob Pilkington, and Greg Hopkins. Having studied both classical and jazz guitar in addition to his background in rock, he is a sought-after freelance guitarist for a wide variety of engagements all over New England and beyond. Equally at home playing classical guitar for a wedding ceremony, modern jazz at a reception, classic rock in an arena, or avant-garde noise-rock in a club, Jeff is adept at switching between different musical styles on a dime—and synthesizing them into unique and powerful presentations. He is a member of the Boston-based commercial bands Thirty6Red, and Richie Rich & 24 Karat Funk. He has been self-producing, releasing, and performing original music since 1996. He is the founder, lead guitarist, lead vocalist, and principal songwriter of the prog-rock group Kave Kraft, which to date has released two EPs and one full-length album, and performed at numerous venues across the region.
