Americana/Alt-country & Outlaw Folk from the hills of Western Wisconsin, blending warm tones, reverbs, delays & vibrato. Jeff White sings of love, loss & lust with an Americana vibe, reflecting the wide emotional spirit of human nature. Dramatic ballads, haunting love songs and bittersweet remembrance are staple themes.
Jeff began honing his songwriting skills working the red-eye shift as a taxi driver. Railroad conductors, heartbroken men and women after bar close and wild out-of-towners were all frequent riders who freely opened up about their personal lives. Their late night conversations were all inspirations to the genesis of his upcoming career as a songwriter and entertainer.
Jeff has toured the lower 48 from coast to coast as well as England, Scotland and Wales. He’s opened for Bernie Sanders, Dr. John, Mason Jennings, members of Wilco, Joe Pug, Hymn for Her, Bill Staines, and has performed alongside Phil Vassar. He has shared the stage with Justin Vernon, and has opened one of his tours at the legendary Big Top Chautauqua. He has 6 albums under his belt. One of which is with Charlie Parr & folk music legend Greg Brown. His latest CD, ‘Renegade Revelations’ recently received a 4 star rating in The Netherlands on the alt-country review website, altcountry.nl.
although Jeff was busy with a family and a teaching career, he remained active in pursuit of his art. Jeff ran small business named Backgrounds by Design, which specialized in painting backgrounds for professional photographer. He also produced large scale installation art for a real estate developer in Kansas City, Kansas. Jeff pieces have appeared in juried shows such as: Arts West and The Janet Carson Gallery in Eau Claire, WI where he was chosen for the People’s Choice Award. His work has appeared in galleries in La Crosse, WI; Denver, CO; Chicago, IL and Fort Meyers, Florida,
Jeff continues to work and display primarily in the upper mid west. Finding new outlets for his work is ever expanding. Jeff enjoys reconnecting with teaching by offering classes in watercolor technique to people of all ability and skill levels. Jeff lives in Eau Claire, WI with Ellen, his wife.

Craig was born and raised in Milton, Wisconsin. From an early age, he knew he wanted to be an artist. Craig received his Degree for Commercial Art in 1991, from Madison Area Technical College. After graduating from MATC, Craig became a mural painter for Adam’s Advertising in Madison, Wisconsin. He hand-painted over 700 billboards throughout his career there, with a wide variety of subject matter, including news anchors, motor cycles, cars and beer. With increasing computer technology, hand-painted billboards became a thing of the past and in 1997 Craig moved on to work for a screen-printing company located in Northern Wisconsin. Craig loves the outdoors, hunting and fishing. His job near Ladysmith, Wisconsin, seemed to be a perfect fit for him, his wife Maria and their boys.
Artisans is a family owned company that produces apparel for men, women, and children for stores such as Cabela’s, Bass Pro and Gander Mountain, and also for clients such as Ducks Unlimited along with hundreds of resort communities throughout the country. Craig prefers designing and illustrating subject matter that involves wildlife. He specializes in elk, deer, ducks, bear, eagles and fish.
In 2005, Craig began entering his paintings in state stamp contests. He has been very successful and has received several runner-up awards, as well as many First of State awards. These include: 2005 Wisconsin Great Lakes Trout Stamp, 2007 Wisconsin Inland Trout Stamp, 2008 Wisconsin Great Lakes Trout Stamp, 2008 Wisconsin Pheasant Stamp and 2009 Wisconsin Turkey Stamp. In 2009 Craig won the Colorado Waterfowl Stamp contest with his depiction of a pair of Barrow’s Golden-eyes, and also won the 2010 Wisconsin Inland Trout Stamp and the 2010 Wisconsin Waterfowl Stamp, which completed his goal of winning all five Wisconsin contests at least once. Most recently Craig won the 2013 Wisconsin Turkey Stamp and the 2013 Wisconsin Pheasant Stamp, and also runner-up the in 2015 and 2017 Wyoming Conservation Stamp contests. In 2015, Craig connected with Musky Hunter Magazine to do illustrations for their cover. Musky fishing has been a passion for Craig for many years, so the opportunity to showcase his art on the world’s premier musky magazine was a thrill. Craig’s ultimate goal is to teach art. He recently graduated from Ashford University of Iowa with a Bachelor’s degree in social science with an education concentration. He hopes to soon be moving on to the next chapter of his life as an artist.
