Jeff & Sheri Easter is a Southern Gospel duo.

Career[edit]

Jeff Easter and Sheri Williamson met in August 1984 during the Albert E. Brumley Sundown to Sunup Gospel Sing in Arkansas. At the time, Jeff was the bassist for the Singing Americans, while Sheri was performing with The Lewis Family. After being introduced, they married ten months later.

After that, Jeff and Sheri traveled and performed as part of The Lewis Family, until they decided to pursue a career alone in 1988. Since that, they've released several albums and have been nominated to various awards.

Jeff and Sheri are currently joined in their presentations by their children: Madison (guitars) and Morgan (vocals). They have another daughter named Maura.[1]

Jeff Easter is son of James Easter, known as member of the Easter Brothers (brothers Ed, James and Russell, from Mt. Airy, NC),[2][3] and brother of steel guitarist Steve "Rabbit" Easter.[4]
