Jeff Barton grew up in a musical family. His aunts formed a popular vocal trio called “The Barton Sisters” in the late 1940s. During his formative years, he was exposed to the music of legendary bass players and was inspired to learn to play the instrument. He has a passion for the soulful sounds of Bob Seger and brings this to every song he performs.
