The first album J. Jeffrey Messerole put out was a 6 track concept album, with the concept being: death and the 5 stages of grief that follow it up. It may have been a risky freshman attempt, but it was incredibly rewarding to create.
Self-taught guitarist, J. Jeffery Messerole is a folk music storyteller from Iowa’s Great Lakes region. Messerole masterfully blends the sound of his guitar, with haunting lyrics, and harmonica to tell gritty american tales, bound to evoke emotion from all of his listeners. Each song is a poignant, and sometimes, painful, snapshot of the lives of old souls and modern folk alike. Spanning the country from coast to coast, he’s happy to share his original folk and alternative country music rooted right here, in the heart of the Great Plains.
