His band was signed by Rick Rubin to American Recordings in 1993. GLU went on to record multiple albums with a heavy guitar, synth, loop driven pop sound that landed them a movie soundtrack hit for the Keanu Reeves film, Johnny Mnemonic, and airtime on alternative rock stations and MTV. This led to years of touring for his band sharing the stage with other heavy pop bands like KMFDM, Korn, Filter, Deftones, No Doubt, and Sublime.

In the studio Jeff was a multi-instrumentalist and producer with synthesis/sampling knowledge, sometimes producing with Matt Mahaffey (episode 69), but also with his GLU partner David Reilly, staying busy with remix projects that included Skinny Puppy, Rob Zombie and Messiah.
