Jeffrey Scott “Jeff” Buckley was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist who made a name for himself during the early 90s, playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village. Not long after, he signed with Columbia and released his only studio album, Grace. Over the following two years, Jeff and his band toured worldwide to promote the album, playing in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia.
