In October of 2011, Jeff Liffmann attended a life-changing yoga class taught by Ame Wren at Boston’s Back Bay Yoga. This was Jeff’s first time experiencing live music for yoga. Immediately inspired, Jeff approached Ame and pitched his own idea for live yoga music. In January of 2012, Jeff and Ame collaborated for the first time and everything aligned. He knew right away that this was what he should be doing.
Jeff continued to perform regularly with Ame at BBY. He recorded many of these performances and made them available online. Jeff received positive feedback from students and teachers alike. Students found the live performances to be unique g and teachers were thrilled when they discovered how seamlessly they could use the recordings in their classes.
Jeff was a featured performer at Wanderlust Vermont 2012, has collaborated with Aarona Pichinson for her Soundscapes at Kula Tribeca (NYC), played at the beautiful Greener Postures in South Portland (ME), and will embark on a cross-country tour for the first half of 2012.
Everything is created live when Jeff Liffmann performs - nothing is looped and nothing is pre-recorded yet the layers and textures he improvises fill the room with a warm atmosphere of brilliant, refined sound. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, Jeff brings a wide range of experience into his performances. His music directly responds to and helps create the energy in the room, invoking a spacious quality of movement and breath. His playing styles and influences include classic rock, acid jazz, dub reggae, electronica, funk, soul, and more. He has lived in the mountains of Colorado, the city of Buenos Aires, and a few places in between. Most recently, Jeff has been a resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn but is looking forward to a new life on yoga tour.
