From the White House to the Grand Ole Opry, Jeff Dayton has been playing guitar and performing all his life. He’s a Nashville producer and writer and loves the concentrated creative scene in Music City. His hometown roots in Minnesota and years in Arizona and one fateful encounter earned him a the job of bandleader with Hall of Fame artist Glen Campbell for 15 years, and set the stage for his move to Nashville.
He also found time to land his music degree, regional hit records and the honor of backing artists including Bo Diddley, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Autry, Mac Davis and many more. Once in Nashville, Jeff focused on writing and producing, but because of his reputation and guitar skills, was soon touring with megastar Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood and others.
Today, Jeff is an active Nashville music producer, songwriter, session guitarist, recording artist and educator and tours as a dynamic bandleader.
