Faded Dream (Live)
"Recognizing musical talent is one thing; having it yourself is another altogether. And fortunately for Asheville, Jeff is doubly gifted."
- Becky Upham, Asheville Citizen Times
"Santiago’s music is a unique marriage of rhythm and heart"
- Mountain Xpress
Jeff Santiago is an Asheville, NC based singer/songwriter. The Bronx born musician grew up playing between NYC and Los Angeles before settling in Asheville, NC. There he immersed himself in the intimate, yet rich musical community that this mountain town prides itself on.
That immersion created bonding musical relationships with fellow musicians from diverse musical backgrounds which influence Los Gatos as a band. Their songs sway, they funk, they rock and they pop. The songs lyrically purvay the emotional landscape that make up love, loss and our complicated society. They have shared the stage with artists like Franz Ferdinand, Ozomatli and Scott Weiland.
The band is:
Jeff Santiago - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Josh Chassner - Lead Guitar
Lee White - Bass
Springs Wade - Drums
“I’ve found so many new influences and experiences here in Asheville.” Santiago says, “The mountains, landscape and people are incredibly inspiring.”
