The first single off the Jeffrey Gaines album[1] was "Hero In Me". Gaines performed that song live on Good Morning America and the song received some radio and MTVairplay, but it would be the b-side to his second single that would eventually give him his biggest hit. "Scares Me More" featured an acoustic live version of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes", which Gabriel had taken to number 26 on the Hot 100 in 1986. Re-released by Gabriel in 1989 after a resurgence in popularity due to the song's inclusion in a key scene in the film Say Anything..., Gabriel's single recharted but failed to hit the Top 40. Gaines' acoustic version received some radio attention but neither side of the single managed to chart nationally in 1992.

Gaines re-recorded both live and studio versions of "In Your Eyes" in 2001 for his fourth album, the independent release Always Be, and the song was released to radio. This time Gaines hit number 22 on the U.S. Adult Top 40 chart[2] and the slow-burning hit remained on the 40-place chart for 22 weeks.[3] Gabriel's own version of the ballad also continued to smolder, being certified as Gabriel's first U.S. Gold single to date in 2005, 19 years after its release.[4]

Gaines was one of the artists invited to contribute vocals to the benefit CD We are Family, produced by Nile Rodgers after the September 11, 2001 attacks with profits going to the families affected by the tragedy and "dedicated to the vision of a global family" and respect and understanding of cultural diversity.[5] The single peaked at #9 on Billboard′s Hot Singles Sales chart in late 2001 and number 32 on Billboard'Hot Dance Club Play chart in early 2002.[6][7]

Gaines has performed his original compositions live on Late Night with Conan O'Brien,VH-1Friday Night Videos and A&E's Breakfast with the Arts.

Gaines has toured with artists including Paula ColeTori AmosTracy Chapman,Melissa EtheridgeStingShawn ColvinEdwin McCainThe Bacon BrothersJoe Jackson and Stevie Nicks.[8] In addition to the Gabriel song Gaines' sets of original material occasionally include covers of songs by other artists as diverse as Elvis CostelloThe MonkeesTraffic and Roberta Flack, and he continues to perform live, with several dates achieved throughout 2012.[9]

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
