Ohio-born singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Jeff Klemm performs original songs on guitar and piano from his 15-year career as a songwriter. Please register for a Zoom link.

Jeff Klemm is best known as the frontman for the nationally touring Maid Myriad, the voice behind Diamond Kites and the driving force behind Jeff Klemm & The Letters. Klemm splits his time between his Solo Acoustic project, his Rock Bands, energetic wedding bands, and making children’s music as Mr. Jeff.

The solo acoustic set Klemm tinkers with weekly at constant performances puts a spotlight on his versatile voice through a highly refined reimagined cover song collection of old soul, rock, pop, and modern-day cover songs with original songs peppered throughout, showcasing his craft of songwriting through fifteen-plus years of writing music for various artists.

A prolific songwriter, Klemm has released dozens of albums with several different bands. Jeff Klemm is currently working on his fifth solo album, a full-length effort with Diamond Kites, a fun album of children’s music, and the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Maid Myriad album, all while frequenting the Ohio acoustic music circuit.

Klemm has performed his music all over the country, many times over, playing concerts in 41 states while embarking on several national full band and solo acoustic tours, averaging 100 shows a year since 2012. Klemm’s work ethic earned him the title of “Hardest Working Man In Akron Show Business” by The Devil Strip magazine.
