The Jefferson are a four piece rock band based in Sydney, Australia and while Jared King (bass), Andrew Horvath (drums) and Andrew Turner (guitar) are the body that drive the resonance and unison, it’s the unique caliber and honesty of singer/songwriter Geoff Rana's voice that makes them truly stand out.

In 2006 Geoff left Australia and headed to Europe instigating a writing spree of material that would appear on their debut album ‘Safe Return To Earth’. Returning back to Australia in 2007 Geoff met future bassist Jared King and quickly recruited him into the band. “Jared’s style draws you in, it’s impossible not to be intrigued by his talent” says Geoff. Andrew got the call to play guitar, adding fresh melody’s to the guitar hooks. Responding to a classified add Dion joined the band on drums and with a complete line up the band dived straight into playing live gigs around Sydney capturing the attention of renowned Australian ARIA-Award winning producer/engineer, Craig Porteils.

The Jefferson went into the studio in June 2009 to record their debut album ‘Safe Return To Earth’. The dynamic between Craig and The Jefferson produced a stand out first album from an indie band. “it’s all quality” says Craig, “The album is one to look out for and the video looks incredible”

Releasing the single ‘Running’ on iTunes worldwide with their first music video in Feb 2010 the band will be touring Australia in May and New Zealand in June 2010 to promote the release of their debut Album. After receiving considerable airplay in New Zealand the band will be playing the main stage at Winter Festival in Queenstown.

2010 is looking promising for The Jefferson and the band are already crafting new material. Wasting no time the band headed back into the recording studio to record a new single with producer’s Trevor Steele and Lee Groves. The new single ‘No Surprise’ adds layers musically not found on their debut album while maintaining the unique sound of the band.
