Jeff Carter
Guitar / Guitar Synths / Vocals
CT native, former Berklee initiate, Jeff has been in the CT music scene since the early 90s. His passions for outlawed alien music technology and diverse genres led him to blend electric guitar with a host of synthesized instruments - inspiring musical adventures in funk, rhythm and blues, EDM, progressive rock and improvisational mandala rock.
