Major Player

Major Player 1 Photo

Major Player is the brainchild of songwriter instrumentalist Jeffrey York. A native-born Upstate New Yorker who has spent a decade writing in the indie rock vein, with influences that span Pop, Rock Hip-hop and R&B. 

A cast of Syracuse NY musicians, Major Player consists of Jeff York on vocals and guitar, backed by Liz Strodel on drums, Andrew Greacen on bass and Nick Mazzeo on Hammond organ, electric piano and synthesizer. 

Major Player grounded itself in the early collaborations of Jeff York and Liz Strodel. What began as an experiment in hip-hop beat-making transformed into an indie project rooted in the art of sampling. 

The debut album "Extended Play" is deliberate in its simplicity and brilliant in his use of repetition and overlapping layers to lead the listener through climactic points of each song. Intentionally lo-fi, introspective and moody, there is a kind of anticipation and patient building that takes place within the rhythmic structure of these tunes.

With lyrics that explore the shadowy faces of love and age, "Extended Play" maintains a pop driven focus, while delivering dark creative melodies and catchy vocal hooks. The lyrical content and delivery will draw you in and keep you listening for answers as the music grows from unanswered questions.
