A South Carolina native, he has toured the southeast for the past two decades, opening for such acts as Scott Miller, Southern Culture on the Skids, and Billy Pilgrim.

Jef Chandler is a founding member of the bands Big Brown Bowl, who released one album, and The Bad Popes, who are currently finishing a second album. He has released three solo albums since 1999, and Genevieve Will at the web site "Indie" remarks that they are “[strangely] successful not only in merging Country, Rock, down-home Blues, Jam, and Pop, but also in tailoring... lyrics and tone to fit individual songs separate styles.” In 2005, Jef's song "Empire of Idle Thoughts" charted on the European Country charts. He cites artists such as Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, and The Beatles as major influences.
Traditional slow, folk instrumental that is sweet and reminiscent of a lullaby, featuring dobro playing the melody with mandolin chiming in the background like a mobile on a child's crib. Great for any scenes involving babies, children. Could be used for scenes of spring. Instrumental, Folk, Appalachian Folk
