HONORING AN OLD FRIEND

Jeff’s years with Glen Campbell were filled with stories, shows and adventures, traveling and recording with one of America’s best-loved and most-respected country/pop artists of all time.

About Jeff Dayton…

From the White House to the Grand Ole Opry, Jeff has been playing guitar and performing all his life. He’s a Nashville producer and writer and loves the concentrated creative scene in Music City. His hometown roots in Minnesota and years in Arizona earned him a the job of bandleader with Hall of Fame artist Glen Campbell for 15 years. He also found time to land his music degree, regional hit records and the honor of backing artists including Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, Tracy Byrd, Bo Diddley, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Autry, Mac Davis and many more. Once arriving in Nashville, Jeff focused on writing and producing, but because of his reputation and guitar skills, was soon touring with megastar Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood, Sarah Darling, Tammy Cochran and others.

Jeff’s first guitar was at age 9 and he immediately formed his first band, The Emperors. From there, it was local clubs and concerts, paying his dues and working with musicians who became sidemen for Prince and Bob Dylan. He moved to Arizona, got his first Nashville song contracts and put together one of the most popular and acclaimed bands in the Phoenix music scene over his 20 years there. One fateful chance encounter with Glen Campbell led to his longtime tenure on that tour and set the stage for his move to Nashville in 2000.

  

Today, Jeff is an active Nashville music producer, songwriter, session guitarist, recording artist and educator and tours as a dynamic bandleader and solo artist. His show Salute To Glen Campbell is appearing nationally, as well as an upcoming tour Jeff Dayton ~ American Troubadour.

Jeff has been busy writing, composing and producing several albums.. all of them great!

 

 
You might catch Jeff on the big and little screen too. He’s appeared on three episodes of Hawaii Five-O and ten episodes of Nashville, plus a Toby Keith music video Honkytonk U. Here is the video with Tobey Kieth! (you can see Jeff playing the piano all through the video)

Calico The Band returns to Sedona AZ…

14192068_1025349867563187_5765046369402721768_nCALICO the band is a California band in the deepest, most natural sense of the term. Specifically, the moniker (all caps, please) is shorthand for California country—as if that weren’t vividly apparent from the first moments of Under Blue Skies, the group’s resonant, accomplished sophomore album, with its musical intricacy, lyrical eloquence and timeless immediacy. The thought-provoking, tightly harmonized songs of founder/leaders Manda Mosher and Kirsten Proffit exist in a continuum with the seminal form Gram Parsons famously dubbed Cosmic American Music.
The sound of Under Blue Skies is informed by the duo’s shared love of Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Eagles, the Everly Brothers, Fleetwood Mac and, of course, the Beatles. Their songwriting touchstones include Joni Mitchell (whose “Ladies of the Canyon” they cover on the album), Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, The Band and Tom Petty. Mosher and Proffit feel so connected to this classic music that they’re able to bring it into the present tense and make it their own.

The partners are California natives with back stories so perfectly complementary they could’ve been scripted, the screenwriter inevitably rendering their predestined intersection as “second-generation hippie meets showbiz kid.” Proffit’s parents were nomadic hippies who roamed from Santa Cruz to Majorca, Spain, and back again with their little girl in tow. Mosher’s family on her mother’s side has been in California since the wagon-train era, while her grandfather was writer and creator of classic sitcoms including Leave It to Beaver and The Munsters. One key ingredient the two sets of parents had in common was their record collections, which shaped the two youngsters’ sensibilities in a profound and lasting way.

“We dug in deeper on this record from a songwriting standpoint,” Manda continues. “Because we’ve spent so much time together, we feel more comfortable expressing vulnerability in the lyrics; there are definitely more love songs. There’s certainly meaning to Rancho California, but it’s more broad strokes; on Under Blue Skies, we were able to dig in and get more personal.”

13719681_995551127209728_1957680710917594730_oKirsten and Manda had finished the record to their satisfaction when they came up with the entirely fitting idea of covering the Mamas & the Papas classic “California Dreamin’.” Just before Christmas 2016, they headed to Scott’s PLYRZ Studio in Santa Clarita with their rhythm section of Kamp and drummer Matt Lucich, augmented by a crew of all-star players including Greg Leisz on pedal steel, Neal Casal on 12-string electric, Patrick Warren on keys and Kaitlin Wolfberg.17390605_1257997800965058_8114201383796147815_o The partners dueted on the lead vocals, and the entire band provided lush, spirited backing harmonies. “It came out so great that we just had to add it to the record,” says Kirsten. The track’s inclusion turns out to be an inspired idea—the performance is ecstatic and suffused with communal spirit, and Scott captured it with characteristic verve and skillfulness.

The new album is further enriched by the mix, conducted with signature artistry and insightfulness by the renowned Jim Scott (Petty, Wilco) through his vintage Neve console.

CALICO’s LATEST HIT… “The 405”
Mosher and Proffit are the indigenous inheritors—and perpetuators—of a rich legacy, and their vision of California unfolds with widescreen Technicolor splendor on Under Blue Skies.

With Under Blue Skies, CALICO has made an album that slides seamlessly into my alphabetized record collection just after Jackson Browne, Tim Buckley, the Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds. Right where it belongs.

live music sedonaNashville songwriter, guitarist and producer Jeff Dayton and one of Music City’s busiest touring and recording artists will be in Sedona this weekend for a “Salute to Glen Campbell” concert. Jeff toured 15 years with Hall of Fame member Glen Campbell as his band leader.

You will have a chance to meet Jeff Saturday night March 25th at 7pm in the Sound Bites Grill showroom located in uptown Sedona. The Jeff Dayton band will be doing a special salute to Glen Campbell where Jeff will tells the stories and play the music that he experienced with his 15 years on the road and in the studio with the legendary country music artist.

Jeff’s years with Glen Campbell were filled with stories, shows and adventures, traveling and recording with one of America’s best-loved and most-respected country/pop artists of all time. It’s only natural that with Glen’s retirement since his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, there would be a demand for his music to still be heard. Jeff has been answering that call with his Salute to Glen Campbell concerts.

Dayton has also toured with Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood; in addition to other artists Jeff has backed include Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, Steve Wariner, John Michael Montgomery, Bryan White, Mark Wills and many more.

With songs recorded by George Strait, Doug Stone, Sarah Darling, Grammy winning zydeco artist Chubby Carrier and placed on hit shows The Voice and Hawaii Five-O, Jeff is a dynamic and interactive entertainer who loves performing live, making records and sharing his music all over the US.
