Jeff Dowd has been playing drums since age 9 and playing his first clubs in his teens. Graduating with a music degree in percussion, the drum set became the instrument of choice. After setting up his first recording studio in 1997, Jeff has released two independent cds under the Barely Breathing Band name. The first cd was completely instrumental. The CD was used on a ABC TV show, help the band become one of the best bands of Cincinnati in 1999 and got recognition inside the industry as a fairly well produced alternative fusion album. For the second album, more studio equipment was purchased and the entire CD was done in house. On the second album, numerous vocal tracks were added, along with the trademark fusion tracks. The CD hit over 100 college radio stations with its alternative fusion flavor. Currently the live band is playing concerts and opening for like acts as they tour through town.
