As a babe Jeffrey Martin sought out solitude as often as he could find it.  He’s always been that way, and he has never understood the whole phenomenon of smiling in pictures, although he is a very happy guy.   One night in middle school he stayed up under the covers with a flashlight and a DiscMan, listening to Reba McEntire’s ‘That’s the Night that the Lights Went Out in Georgia’ on repeat until the DiscMan ran out of batteries.  That night he became a songwriter, although he didn’t actually write a song until years later.
