Jeff Picker plays the double bass. His unique blend of bluegrass, folk, western swing, and jazz influences has made him a highly in-demand sideman and an exciting, up-and-coming creative voice on the roots music scene. He plays frequently in New York City and around the world with a wide variety of artists, including 2-time Grammy-winner Sarah Jarosz. In December 2017, Jeff joined 15-time Grammy-winner Ricky Skaggs as the full-time bassist in his band, Kentucky Thunder. He was raised in Portland, OR and Dallas, TX, and has been New York City-based for 11 years.
