Singer and songwriter Jennifer Tefft will return to her Medfield roots on Saturday, Oct. 20 when she will perform with her band at the Zullo Gallery.
After getting her start in the subways and on the streets of Cambridge, Tefft has released four CDs and numerous singles, and many of her songs have been used on national television shows including CSI, MTV, Stargate Universe, One Life to Live, and The Young & The Restless.
With her earthy and soulful music, Tefft has earned finalist spots in the Lillith Fair Showcase and Discmakers Independent Music World Series, as well as Boston Music Award nominations. Her single "Breathe" spent four weeks on WZLX's top five "Boston Emissions" list. She is also the recipient of "Best Alternative Album" by the Just Plain Folks Association in Hollywood, California.
Joining Tefft at the Zullo will be band members Phil Antoniades on drums, Jeff St. Pierre on bass, and John Parrillo on guitar.
Antoniades is a veteran of the Boston music scene. He attended Berklee School of Music on a full scholarship, and has a long musical resume that includes world-wide tours, and national opening acts for Spin Doctors and Van Halen.
St. Pierre, another Berklee graduate, is a musician, sound engineer, producer and programmer who received a Boston Music Award nomination for Best Roots Rock Band.
Parrillo lives in Brighton and has performed with Tefft since 1994.
Tefft was born and raised in Medfield, and now lives in Franklin with her husband and two children.
"Medfield is a special place, and it's especially nice to come home to play at the Zullo Gallery, which has become the cultural hub of the town. I encourage everyone to stop in to see the show, and check out the latest exhibit too," said Tefft.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and admission is $10 per person at the door. Seats can be reserved in advance by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
