J. Jeffrey Messerole is an Iowa based singer, songwriter, storyteller, and working man. We’re proud to have him at West O on a regular basis.
“Self-taught guitarist, J. Jeffery Messerole is a folk music storyteller from Iowa’s Great Lakes region. Messerole masterfully blends the sound of his guitar, with haunting lyrics, and harmonica to tell gritty american tales, bound to evoke emotion from all of his listeners. Each song is a poignant, and sometimes, painful, snapshot of the lives of old souls and modern folk alike. Spanning the country from coast to coast, he’s happy to share his original folk and alternative country music rooted right here, in the heart of the Great Plains. Often playing live shows under the name “J. Jeffrey Messerole and Fire Creek” he is joined by Paul Homstad on the keys and ukulele, and Chris Bern on percussion.”
J. Jeffrey Messerole returns to West O on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016, 7-10pm.
