One of Jeff's songs was recently placed in a national department store commercial. "Jeff Findl and the Acoustic Accomplices" is a group of eight (8) Los Angeles area musicians that recorded 21 original songs featuring the nylon-string guitar, piano, and other orchestral accompaniment. Their upbeat instrumental compositions showcase tastetful musicianship that fills the musical space with melodic grooves of cheerfulness and creativity. This musical group is a studio-created band brought together by Los Angeles record producer Ronan Chris Murphy (known for his past work with King Crimson) to record the guitar-based compositions of Jeff Findl. The elegant keyboards are performed by Giovanna Imbesi who has toured with Yanni and Andy Summers of the Police. The group also includes creative bassist Ian Sheridan actively tours with Jason Mraz. Drummer Victor Bisetti was a long time percussionist for the popular band, Los Lobos. In his touring days, pedal steel guitarist Dave Pearlman played with Dan Fogelberg's band. In 2004, Jeff Findl's solo debut album titled 'Somebody Got Happy Fingers' rose to 5 on the New Age Reporter airplay top-100 chart. After recording a dozen new songs for the new album and liking the results, Jeff Findl didn't stop there. He elected to take another crack at his previous album compositions. Equipped with a new guitar, new producer & studio, along with talented guest musicians, Jeff Findl re-composed and re-recorded eleven former songs. The resulting 21-song CD includes completely new songs along with fresh approaches to former recordings. The CD title, "Beach Buzz Instrumentals", expresses the enchanting appreciation one feels living in a quaint beach town amid the peaceful sights and sounds of the coast.
