Jeff Tassin, a three time Emmy winning composer, writer and performer has also garnered International Telly Awards, and other distinctions for his work with PBS here in Seattle, to Brockway TV in New York. He has worked on the studio rosters in Seattle, Los Angeles, and Nashville as a session player and producer. Once Regional Director for The National Academy of Songwriters based in Los Angeles and founder/executive Director for the Northwest Songwriters Network, he has gained an unusual perspective of this business called music.
Jeff held several places in the Reviewers Choice, all-time top 25 guitar players, on the international garageband.com website, founded by Jerry Harrison, (Talking Heads) and chaired by Sir George Martin of Beatle fame and was voted #1 all-time best player in Blues and #1 all-time best player in Rock. Garageband.com has recently been bought by iLike.com under the myspace umbrella. I am currently absorbing these changes of venue and adjusting the site
