“Over the course of the last two decades, Jeff Plankenhorn has worked tirelessly to earn his rep as one of the most reliably can-do, right-dude-for-the-job musicians in Austin, Texas. As an exceptionally talented acoustic, electric, slide, and lap-steel guitarist with a keen understanding of the importance of playing to and for a song rather than all over it, he’s been called on countless times to back a veritable who’s who of Texas and Americana music’s finest singers and songwriters, including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Joe Ely, Eliza Gilkyson, Ruthie Foster, and the late Jimmy LaFave.” —LONE STAR MUSIC 

“Jeff Plankenhorn has become something of an Austin institution, sought after by many artists to lend his musical talents to their albums and performances. Calling him a guitarist doesn’t quite do him justice, though. Sure, he’s designed his very own guitar – a custom lap steel guitar called, perhaps not surprisingly, “The Plank”. Give him just about any stringed instrument, however, and he’ll no doubt get it singing… The songs have a wonderful lived-in wanderlust to them, filled with catchy Americana melodies that are served up with airy and freewheeling arrangements. Stylistically, the songs range from the rugged and bluesy ‘Never Again’ to the pop-oriented ‘I Don’t Know Anything’ to the gentle acoustic ballad ‘Further to Fall’.” —TWANGVILLE
