(Voice, Lead Guitar)
A voice such as none shall ever hear on this plane,
And a Guitar style that effortlessly combined elements
Of Jazz, Blues, Rock and Folk music into one inimitable style.
So, the whole web site is about the guy, I'm sure you can find
some more info.
After playing around NYC for several years as a member of several
different bands, Mick saw Jeff playing at a popular music club
inside a crypt at Columbia University. A late night jam session
with Jeff cemented their mutual vision towards music.
Mick introduced Jeff to Matt, and the three of them laid the
tracks for Grace together.
Mickey is not currently touring. He was reported to have been writing and performing
material for a soundtrack to a film. Mickey attended and participated in a
Copenhagen Tribute show to Jeff Buckley on June 5, 1998.
Matt Played with a band in NY called the Choosy Mothers before joining up with
Mick and Jeff. He played with Dorothy Scott for a time.
He also played drums on a few tracks from a new artist named Morley,
and has done a few shows as the drummer for Elysian Fields.
He's currently on tour drumming for Beth Orton (deConstruction/Arista) to
support her recent release Central Reservation. Matty also did tour with Duncan
Sheik to support his Atlantic release "Humming" (there's a tribute song to
Jeff on that album too). Matty continues to also play with NY based
musicians/singer/songwriters downtown including Dorothy Scott.
Michael was never in a band before he joined
up with the other 3. Yet, he co-wrote So Real with
Jeff, and was a force in live shows.

as well as a few tracks on their new album as bass player.

Those Bastard Souls (V2 Records) which included
members of The Grifters (Jeff's favorite band) and the Dambuilders.
