About Jeff

Born in Texas and raised in Caroline, Jeff Luckadoo is a singer / songwriter and actor from Mt. Holly, North Carolina. Jeff grew up hunting, fishing and playing baseball and singing in church.  He took a drama class in high school and found he liked it and had some talent.  Jeff also met his future wife Stephanie at East Gaston High School. They were married after he graduated from UNC-Charlotte.  His children Luke and Lauren shortly followed.  Jeff recently said, "My family is my greatest joy and my children, now almost grown, are my greatest achievement.  They're really good kids that would make any dad proud." 

From acting in plays and movie roles in high school and college, Jeff eventually got into screen acting  with commercials and then movies.  He's a proud member of the Screen Actor's Guild.  Some highlights were commercials for Conseco, Lowe's and Raybestos and movie roles in "Praise Band",  "A Dance for Bethany", and "A Tale About Bootlegging".

Musically he grew up on Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Jr., Waylon, Willie, Charlie Daniels and other great southern singer/songwriters.  "That stuff just resonates in my soul," said Jeff, "Songs about real life pain and love."  I try to bring that same narrative to my songs."  As a singer / songwriter, Jeff's music can best be described as Country Americana steeped in southern experience. Whether it’s the passion of a coming home song like “Carolina Blue”, or the irreverent rocker like “Can You Hear Me Now?”, or a funny story song like “Speedo Toledo”, Jeff’s songs are full of imagery and emotion. In 2008 he was awarded the Emerging Regional Artist Grant by the NC Arts and Science Council and in 2009 was named the Charlotte Music Awards Country Artist of the Year.  Other highlights include a "Salute to the Troops" concert with the USO, opening for John Anderson at the Bojangles' Coliseum for the Charlotte Firefighters and singing the National Anthem at the Charlotte Knight Baseball Stadium.
