11 Mar – Jake Shane

“Making music is my conduit for expression, my antidote and my meditation. To me, making music means making myself over and over, every time a little differently.” 

Jake Shane is a singer-songwriter and guitarist living in Nashville, Tennessee.

Martin Chilton from The Daily Telegraph has written about Jake Shane’s recent record: “Jake Shane’s album ‘Evening Sounds’ neatly blends folk, Americana and even some Spanish influences from his time in Madrid in pleasant melodies with some clever lyrics on songs such as ‘Before Winter’ and ‘Seascape’. An enjoyable listen.”

Jake Shane grew up in Springfield, Illinois where he started collecting vinyl records with his father at age twelve—Hendrix led him to Dylan and Dylan led him to the recesses of the early blues and folk traditions. Jake received his B.A. in Philosophy from Belmont University in Nashville, releasing his Karamazov-inspired album, Ancient Fire (2012), to fulfill his Honors thesis requirement. 

After working at Oh Boy Records, he moved to Madrid, Spain. Jake lived there two years, in which time he taught English, studied flamenco guitar and translated a book on the subject from Spanish. While in Spain he also wrote the songs to his album , Evening Sounds (Released March 13, 2015), which he recorded upon moving back to Nashville in Fall 2014 to pursue music full-time. Two songs from this album are featured in the Nashville Review. The magazine American Songwriter has also featured his single, “Seascape.” His strong, image-driven lyrics explore the eternal questions through American roots music with Spanish overtones, forming a sound entirely his own.
