Singer/Songwriter Jeff Givens is a classic, road-seasoned troubadour. As a contemporary musical gypsy, Jeff travels the country, town by town, meeting folks from every aspect of life and listening to their stories. He lives this life, documenting it all in his songs. Somehow, writing through the haze of self-destruction like his heroes before him, (Kerouac, Burroughs, Lennon, Hank, Townes and others) he has prevailed and come out the other side, battling his demons by writing about them. Jeff's mantra can be heard in the lyric from his song "Girl in Carolina": I've got boots, guitars, and whiskey, that's all I ever need.

Born in Tennessee and raised in Chicago, Mr. Givens is a music veteran of over 30 years and has played in many Chicago bands. Working with Jay Bennett from Wilco was one of his numerous extraordinary experiences. Back in 2001, Jeff went all-in; he left his day gig and everything else to fully embrace this musical journey. Tramping around America, like another prince of skid row, he began writing songs that defined his life. At a crossroads, he was looking for a sign to tell him the time was right to create the first installment of this novel, this life. In the parking lot of yet another cheap motel in Owensboro, Kentucky it hit him like a shot of bathtub moonshine. The old Cowboy called his dear friend, and musical soulmate Jason Botka, with whom he had toured years before. Jason took the call and listened as an obviously well-oiled Cowboy proclaimed, "Brother, I am ready to record the album of my life!" Jason invited Mr. Givens to saddle up and get started. From the easy rooms of Skye Bleu Studios "Bourbon Cowboy" was born. Gratefully surrounded and supported by talented, soulful players who gave their all to this record, we proudly present.....
Jeff Givens - "Bourbon Cowboy"
