Born and raised in Brooklyn, singer, songwriter and guitarist Garland Jeffreys began his career in Manhattan nightclubs in the mid-'60s as a solo act. After forming a group called Grinder's Switch in 1969, they released one album before breaking up in 1970. Jeffreys solo career continued through the '70s with releases on Atlantic and A&M Records. His hit 'Wild in the Streets,' helped him stake his place on the musical map, recording it not once, but twice. After a long absence, he reemerged in 1992 with the release 'Don't Call Me Buckwheat,' which offered such powerful statements about race matters and racism as 'Welcome to the World.'
