bio

Biography

Jeff Caylor believes there's something magical about songwriting.

"You simply put the notes and words together and then the song takes on its own meaning apart from you. Sometimes I imagine all these little s.o.s.s can have a positive effect on someone else," says Caylor.

"You get all honest and transparent. You cry for help in a song. You write words that beg for someone to come and save you. And then, if everything goes right, in the end, the song ends up saving someone else."

Critics have been lauding his debut CD Okay, even calling it the 5th best CD of 2007 - uncommon accolades for an indie artist without promotion or a recording budget. And while the songwriting has gotten plenty of attention, it's Caylor's voice that sets him apart. One reviewer quipped, "If Seal were white, this is what hed sound like."

Jeff Caylor is currently living in Hong Kong where he's working on his sophomore effort, set to release in early 2008.
