Rooted in the tradition of classic Americana & Folk storytelling with a tip of the hat to Blues & Southern Soul,

Jeff Krause pairs lyric-forward songs with a guitar style that moves from Acoustic coffee house strums to dusty bar Blues.

"Would it Be Alright is a gorgeous love song.  The lyrics are terrific, and the playing throughout the entire record compliments his writing." Jim McGuinn Program Director, 89.3 The Current - KCMP Minneapolis

Jeff Krause got his start in the midwest as a lead guitar player in the vast and ever growing songwriting culture of the Twin Cities. He says “I'm constantly inspired by the seemingly endless talent harbored in Minneapolis and working to create something worthy of that influence.” Now calling New Orleans, LA home, Jeff Krause writes original songs that are all too relatable about the ins and outs of love with a common thread of the persevering spirit born from the highs and lows of life. Inspired by the lyric writing of greats such as Jason Isbell & John Prine and the grooves of Amos Lee & Ray LaMontagne, Krause crafts songs that are suited for an intimate acoustic show or a full stage.
