Baritone JEFFREY THORSEN will mark his 21st season with The Caroling Company in 2015 . His eclectic career began in 1981 as member of The Serendipity Singers ("Crooked Little Man", "Beans In My Ears"). After two years of touring and a season of TV appearances on the USA Network , Jeff landed in Los Angeles doing voice-overs and working behind the cameras on HBO's "Not Necessarily The News".
Jeff left the road for good after fronting The New Seekers in 1986 to concentrate on his television career, eventually emerging as an award-winning producer of variety programming. He has worked with comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher, Dennis Miller, Paul Rodriguez and Drew Carey, produced music specials with Whitney Houston and N*Sync, and won a primetime Emmy Award in 2002 for producing a concert version of "Sweeney Todd" at the San Francisco Symphony for PBS. His recent credits includes series work (“The Half Hour” and “Stand Up Revolution” for Comedy Central, “Stand Up and Deliver” for NuvoTV and “Billy Gardell Presents Road Dogs” for Showtime) and specials (“Sebastian Maniscalco: Aren't You Embarrassed?“, “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy”), but the highlight of 2015 was “Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood”, which premiered on NBC in September and re-aired in an extended cut on Comedy Central in November.
Between caroling seasons, Jeff keeps his voice in shape appearing in local theatrical productions and taking the occasional casual gig, as well as serving as an off-camera announcer for TV specials and commercials.
