Introduction
Being a guitarist and songwriter since 1967, Jeff Wyatt has been affected by many musical influences that inevitably rear their heads in his music. But when it comes to overall preference of musical styles, he often falls back onto composition that includes some type of blues or blues/rock influence, although he would not strictly try to label himself a blues-man.

Even though he tinkers with a variety of instruments, guitar is by far his specialty (electric, finger-style acoustic in standard and open tunings, and slide which he uses on both electric and acoustic guitar). Since his work is both instrumental and lyrical, electric and acoustic, it is difficult at times to strictly categorize.

People compare his guitar work and vocal style to a combination of Ry Cooder, David Wilcox, Mark Knopfler, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash, Gordon Lightfoot, Jeff Beck and others.
<><><><><><><><><><><><>
Jeff, originally from the Saskatchewan prairies (where he performed with the popular 70's prairie band EDEN), has been involved with the Canadian west coast music scene (writing, recording and performing live) since 1991, prior to his 24 year involvement with the Canadian prairie music scene. As well as being a musician, he also graduated from the 'Digital/Analog Automated Recording Arts' program ...at Columbia Academy in Vancouver, Canada in 1992.

His earliest solo recording project of his own music dates back to 1990 with the album 'FLIGHT OF THE HAWK', which was a folksy, acoustic, bluesy, rootsy compilation presented in a simple, uncomplicated fashion.

In 1994 he produced a follow up solo EP entitled 'THE BULLFROG SESSION', which featured Jeff’s acoustic guitar playing skills as he further explored and expanded his acoustic guitar technique using slide and alternate tunings. The Bullfrog Session, also bluesy and rootsy, was recorded with Jeff performing on vocals and a single guitar only,…no additional instrumentation. THIS ALBUM HAS BEEN DIGITALLY RE-MASTERED AND RE-RELEASED AS OF NOVEMBER 2011.

In 2005 Jeff co-invented a musical duo with songwriter Barry Greenfield, simply known as 'greenfield and wyatt' (subsequently shortened to 'greenfield wyatt'). Jeff and Barry released their collaborative album 'SONGS FROM THE ROTHSTEIN' in October 2005, which veteran music reviewer Tom Harrison of the Vancouver PROVINCE favorably scrutinized, complimenting Jeff's contribution with...

“Greenfield’s fourth and most atmospheric album thanks to Wyatt’s stately strings and fluid guitar…”.

With the eclectic concept album 'REFLECTIONS AT EVERY CORNER' release in 2008, Jeff presented a clever mix of Blues, Pop, Rock, Folk, Jazz, Ethnic, World and Classical music influences in his original and unique acoustic and electric song stylings.

Jeff released his album ‘PEOPLE DO BLUES’ in February 2011. As the title suggests, it is most certainly a blues influenced project. Tom Harrison of the Vancouver Province reviewed this album by saying...

"Wyatt sings and plays with charm and those who favour a flavourful approach to swampy and slide guitar driven blues-rock to flashy but sterile blues (the curse of most contemporary blues) will like this record."

2011 also saw Jeff release 2 guitar instrumental singles, entitled 'MAX AND THE SQUIRREL' and 'MIND THE TIME'.

Jeff performs regularly in and around the Vancouver area along with a host of talented musical friends, who include Kevin Rintoul (bass), Brian Dierks (drums), Clyde Griffith (congas), Phil Howell (bass), Stephen Berne (drums) and Vince Iormetti (drums)... in various band combinations.

What a great article. Such interesting and disturbing info. A clear historical case of our native brothers and sisters being shafted. I wasn't aware that the Sioux were officially promised the Black Hills, only to have that reneged when white prospectors discovered gold in the region. That bites, I also wasn't aware that ownership rights of the region is still unsettled and in the courts. Like Bernie, I feel somewhat close to this history, since I was Saskatchewan born and raised. I've also been to the restored Fort Walsh. When you go there you can feel the history around you.
