MINOR LEAGUE – SATURDAY, 12/22/18 @ 3:00PM
In 2015, singer/songwriter Jeff Paxton released his debut full-length album, The
Importance of Being Shackleton. “Shackleton” quickly gained the attention of the local press,
earning a spot on the 2016 Houston Press Music Honor Roll and a Houston Press Show of the Week
mention [April 2016], being described as “a spicy hash of folk, alt-pop, and rock ‘n’ roll… musical
ingenuity and wisecracking bite.”
In April 2017, Jeff Paxton and his band recorded audio and video at a house concert, which
turned into their second full length release: Live at Chuck’s House. Live at Chuck’s House is a raw
and direct, all-acoustic album that emphasizes both the quality of the songs and musicianship.
After its release, they were asked to be featured artists at Bayou City Art Fest, KPFT Songwriter
Studio, River Revival Texas Music Festival, and SXSW.
After spending 2017 touring regionally and perfecting new material, Jeff Paxton and his
band decided to create a new project called Minor League, which will have a more focused and
melodic, energetic rock and roll sound, heavily influenced by the music of the early 90s. These new
tracks will be released in November, 2018.
