Son of actors Dorothy and Lloyd Bridges, Jeff was drawn to acting due to success in movies at a young age, but he was focused on writing music and says, “This album is a natural extension of the love of music I’ve had all my life…I’ve been into music ever since I was a kid, my mother forced me to take piano lessons when I was around 8…and I bailed.” Although he didn’t continue with piano lessons, he rediscovered his love of music in high school when he picked up a Danelectro guitar; he then joined a band and practiced every week for the next fifteen years.
“Bridging” the gap between acting and music came easily to Bridges, who says, “They’re both collaborative, you’re working with different artists, but there are also aspects in the writing and the practicing. You prepare, and then you let go.” The Paramount is ecstatic to have the multi-talented actor and musician-Jeff Bridges- share his soulful and heartfelt music with Long Island.
