In January of 2000 Jeff took a job working for Richard Branson's V2 label in New York. He became Head of Artist Development and worked with artists such as The Black Crowes, Underworld, Rinocerose, Stereophonics and Moby. While working there Jeff produced the highly praised Moby: Play - The DVD for which he received his first Grammy nomination.
