 (Musician) is a New York City based songwriter and entertainer.  He was the frontman for Hector On Stilts, a pop-rock band whose songs have been featured on TV shows like ABC’s Brothers And Sisters.  Currently, Jeb writes, records and performs with his band Colwell.  In 2012 they began performing as the house band for a People’s Improv Theatre sketch comedy team, for whom Jeb also created content including a video spoof of the Wham! classic "Last Christmas” (which the Huffington Post called “four-and-a-half minutes of toe-curling hilarity”.) Along with Grammy Award winner Andres Levin, Jeb co-wrote and performed the lead vocal on Cuba En Mi Corazon, a recording produced for Up With People.  Lately Jeb has been spotted assisting the music program at Kidz Village, a day-care center in Queens, while operating under the alias Mr. Jebby. Fun fact: Jeb’s grandfather was Academy Award winning actor, Anthony Quinn (from whom he derives the uncanny resemblance!). jebcolwell.com
