Welcome to the official Jeff Rice music page.
Thankyou for visiting my page i am very grateful.
I play the acoustic and electric guitar and have been crafting my style for over 20 years.My style has been described as a variety of styles from rock, pop, country and folk and have released a number of songs for airplay on a number of radio stations in Australia, and short films for tropfest 2013.
I have recently completed a film clip featuring one of my popular songs 'Strip back" which will be available to see on youtube, and my website.There has been a lot of interest around this song in Nashville Tennessee USA, with possible tour and studio time and feature film release.
I have completed vocal training with the late John Arnold on the Gold Coast for two years as well as obtaining a Diploma of Contemporary Music from the Northern Rivers Conservartorium of Arts in Lismore NSW.
Previously i was organising an Open Mic night at the Surfers Paradise RSL every monday night and have previously hosted similar nights at 1two3 Dining lounge in Broadbeach QLD, and the Harbord Beach Hotel, NSW and the Runaway Bay Tavern in Runaway Bay, and the Railway Hotel at Beaudesert.

I have jammed with some great artists over the years and have had the chance to sit down and meet some famous musicians over the years like Tim Farriss and Kirk Pengilly from "Inxs" where i was lucky enough to personally show Tim some of my songs at his house on the northern beaches NSW.
I have participated in songwriting workshops with Keith Armitage from Songwriters Live and retreats in the Blue Mountains NSW and the Logan Festival 2013 with Jake the founder and singer/guitarist for Forever Road. I was one of the first artists on the Open mic circuit at sydneys Mona vale hotel, and Songwriters live now in a variety of venues across NSW.
I have auditioned for a variety of music shows from"Rockstar Inxs" in 2005, and the The X-Factor 2009 and The Voice in 2012.
