Hi, my name is Jake, I've been playing guitar for about 11 years, writing for a little less time than that. In the past couple of years I've also started to use my voice in my music. In all these things I'm self-taught, for what that's worth.
My personal style hovers in the blues, progressive, rock, alternative, folk, country realm of things (if that's a realm), but I'm open to most genres, as may be inferred from my listening preferences.
There's not really a genre of music I don't enjoy listening to. The recently played bands/artists on my phone include: 'Mili', 'Deep Purple', 'Fury', 'Mitski', 'Nina Simone', 'Khruangbin', 'The Animals', 'Nico Vega', 'Electric Octopus', 'DAOKO', 'Dark Forest', 'All Them Witches', 'REI', 'Priestess', 'Red Velvet', 'Kacey Musgraves', 'ASAKA', 'Tom Waits' 'Visigoth', 'Unleash the Archers', 'The Midnight', 'Stone Golem', 'Delta Rae', you get the idea.
Admittedly, I haven't got a lot of experience with gigging but I'm keen to change that.
And I'm similarly keen to collaborate with others; to write awesome music together, to sell out stadiums together, to take over the world together!
But, you know, one step at a time.

ClarityI live my life Grateful For all that it lets me be But one silent night I heard something other Call to me Softly spoken words From the other side Whispered on the wind Not sure what I heard I called right back What message do you bring? A moment passed Without a sound It must've been in my head But then aghast As I turned around I saw the face of the dead It greeted me not an enemy But a long lost friend Beseeching me to help it please With a mortal errand I did not know what to say I just stood there Stunned Wondering if I should pray Or just bloody run Breath misting before me As another soul arose This one seemed different He almost seemed to glow As he smiled he said these words And many more besides "Hello, my child, you have a gift There's no need to question why," Speaking these words He read my mind For I could find no reason That I should receive Such a gift He must be deceiving. But this thought he plucked from mind With his ever-widening Smile Then he said "Come, my dear child, Let us walk a while." "Where?" I replied "On the other side, So you might see for yourself With clarity That the words I speak Are not sent from hell."
Love, Among Other Things Part 1
Love, Among Other Things Part 1
Heart-Shaped EyesI know you And you know me The way we are The way we used to be We lie in the rays Our love alight on our skins So much to say You say it all with a grin This life can seem a madness With a touch of sin Where does the one end And the other begin? It's a tangled web that is so often weaved But that's how I know that this is love 'Cause when you smile I am set free Some may run away from fire I dedicate myself to the flame Of your sweet loving Ooh, I'll scream your name Some may be of a mind To say that that's insane To which I happily reply A rose by any other name
A Few Little Words
A Few Little WordsThere are a few little words that I feel must be said And I hope as I write that these words are read By the lady that I only quite recently met Whose beauty, in vain, I now try to forget For as much as our two souls danced in that moment The feelings we felt were so far beyond potent That neither of us could act or even hope to express The slightest tingling of emotion, not even in jest All we could do was stare at one another With mutual approval and no care for any other The flash of her eyes and the flick of her lashes Were beacons of light guiding my flight from the ashes Of a love that had left me burned and dismayed But just at that moment she turned her eyes away I felt a pinch in my throat, as I thought to protest Damn the futility, “You have my heart possessed!” Were the few little words that I managed to utter Granted, at the time, they were more of a stutter But utterance enough to recall her attention And those new seconds bought my soul its ascension No words beyond my own were said for awhile As all of our feelings were exchanged in a smile
SwaySo supple So sweet As you sway In the breeze Such grace Such ease As you hold my heart It beats It beats Pour vous It beats If only You knew What you have Done to Me Do not Do not Release me Do not Leave me Just let it be Let it be And love me Just love me Love me So supple So sweet As you sway In the breeze Such grace Such ease As you hold my heart It beats It beats Pour vous It beats Soft light Bright hue Burning twilight Burns for you The Sun shines Turning blue Scarlet red, and I I Burn for you I yearn for you Aujourd'hui Ma chérie Aime moi Ce soir Ma chérie Be mine Ma chérie, my dear Be mine Ce soir Sois à moi And love me Just love Just love me So supple So sweet As you sway In the breeze Such grace Such ease As you hold my heart It beats It beats Pour vous ma chérie It beats It beats For you It beats
