About Me

Hi, I'm Jef Canter... aka Jef with 1 F!

Welcome to my website! I am an Actor/Singer/Musician – Raised in Florida – Transplanted to San Diego for 10 years – And I now proudly call New York City my home.


In my younger years, I played music professionally in Chicago, wrote songs in Nashville, and even toured Japan, Guam, the Philippines, and Hawaii with a band, but I left the entertainment world to pursue a career in business. However, after a number of years, I realized that I would never be fully happy unless I gave acting the attention it deserved. It was the right call!


Since then, I have performed in National Tours, Internationally (Edinburgh Fringe twice!), Off-Broadway, and on numerous other stages. I also have appeared on network TV (CBS) and in film projects that were screened at numerous Film Festivals throughout the country. 


I am a lover of comedy and also of deep, dramatic roles. I am able to sing in a wide range of styles from Opera, to Legit, to Rock/Pop/Folk and Country. 

Please feel free to continue to check out my website. I’m happy to share some of the things I’ve done in the past and look forward to adding new and exciting things in the future. And yes… there's a reason I only have 1 F in my name... Ask me sometime....
