Jeff is of Chinese ancestry through both parents; he has four siblings, including a brother, with whom he later started a public address equipment business. After finishing high school, Jeff studied industrial design and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He wanted to become an architect, but after he started playing keyboards for the rockabilly band The Roadmasters, he became fully focused on music. He then joined the Cockroaches, after being invited to the band by Antony and Paul Field; before signing with a record label, The Cockroaches released a number of singles, such as “I Want a Leather Jacket” (1980), “Shake Jump and Shout” (1982), “My Whole World’s Falling Down” (1985), and “Another Night Alone” (1986). They then signed with Regular Records, and released their debut album in 1987 entitled “The Cockroaches”. The band existed until the mid- ‘90s, releasing three more albums – “Fingertips” (1988), “Positive” (1991) and “St. Patrick’s Day 10 am” (1994), before disbandment, although they released a compilation album in 1999 entitled “Hey Let’s Go – The Best of the Cockroaches”, and regrouped in 2014 to hold two concerts.

The Wiggles were born even before the end of The Cockroaches; Anthony recruited Murray Cook, Greg Page, Phillip Wilcher and Jeff for this musical project. Their first, self-titled album came out in 1991, and sold over 70,000 copies, kick-starting their career as a band for children. Jeff stayed in the band until 2012, and oversaw the release of 35 studio albums, including “Yummy Yummy” (1994), which achieved double platinum status in Australia and gold in the US, then “Big Red Car” (1995), “Wake Up Jeff!” (1996), “Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas” (1996), “The Wiggles Movie Soundtrack” (1997), “Toot Toot!” (1998), “It’s a Wiggly Wiggly World” (2000), “Wiggle Time!” (2000), and “Wiggly Safari” (2002), all of which achieved at least platinum status, while some were certified double platinum in Australia, which increased Jeff’s wealth to a large degree. The Wiggles became a national sensation in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, which resulted in a TV show “The Wiggles” (1999-2013), further increasing his net worth.

Although he worked with children, Jeff didn’t necessarily feel comfortable around children in the beginning, but later grew accustomed to them.

Thanks to his successful career, Jeff was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in January 2010, while in 2011 he received an ARIA Hall of Fame Award with The Wiggles.

Regarding his personal life, Jeff has been married to Vanessa since 2010. Back in 2011 he experienced severe health problems and underwent urgent surgery after being diagnosed with arrhythmia. He missed the entire summer tour in the US and later decided to retire from performing, though he still remains one of the creative forces of the highly popular children’s band.
