About Jeff Lopez
“Laid back” is how they describe it. Music that falls gently on the ear…with words and stories that speak to the heart. Jeff Lopez has been singing and writing the kind of “laid back” music we all relate to for most of his life. A singer, guitarist, and songwriter, he lives in the Clear Lake area southeast of Houston with his wife, Shirley. Jeff taught himself to play guitar at an early age and began writing songs as a teenager. He is an ASCAP member, having had two of his songs recorded in the 70’s by country music star Mel Tillis. Jeff recorded numerous singles in his early songwriting years, which received local airplay. He has performed in clubs and restaurants from Lake Charles to Houston through the years as a solo act and also with his sons and brother in a classic rock band called CROSSROADS.

He covers a wide variety of popular artists and lists James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Harry Chapin, and Jim Croce as musical influences.
