Hey folks,

I just arrived in Germany again on Monday, embarking on my 2nd tour of Europe and promoting my recent record, Leap Year – including playing intimate Living Room Concerts. Last week, we made a video explaining how easy andd fun it is to have a small concert in your own home. Check it out:

CAN I PLAY IN YOUR LIVING ROOM OR BACKYARD??

I just made it back to the USA from the first leg of my Leap Year Tour in Germany. I had a complete blast and learned very much about playing out internationally and what material works best. I’m currently planning a simple USA Living Room / Backyard Tour in May, to help raise money for getting back to Europe in July as well as for recording another record, GREAT TO WAKE UP TO, featuring more acoustic originals that were appreciated over Germany.

Living Room Concerts are the most up-close and intimate way to experience live music; always a good time, they can vary in personality depending on the style of the host, home and type of event. Some LRCs are private shows, but often people open their homes to a wider audience (generally friends of friends). Guests can bring food and drinks to share, and a hat is passed with a suggested donation.

If you’d be so kind to host me or know someone who would, I’d really really really appreciate it.

Here are the cities and tentative dates (so far only Pittsburgh on 5/14 is booked):
USA-Leap-Year-Tour-(May-6th---May-31st)-

 

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Monday 5/6
CHICAGO, IL – Wednesday 5/8
ANN ARBOR or DETROIT, MI – Friday 5/10
CLEVELAND or AKRON, OH – Sunday 5/12
PITTSBURGH, PA – Tuesday 5/14 <====== TENTATIVELY BOOKED
NEW YORK, NY – Thursday 5/16
WASHINGTON, DC – Saturday 5/18
RICHMOND, VA – Monday 5/20
RALEIGH or CHAPEL HILL, NC – Wednesday 5/22
CHARLOTTE, NC – Friday 5/24
ATLANTA – Sunday 5/26
LEXINGTON – Tuesday 5/28
CINCINNATI – Friday 5/31
And this is an original song from my last show in Germany at shackspace in Stuttgart.

AW SNAP – JAKE’S ON TV IN GERMANY

This trip has been great!

I played an amazing living room concert (Wonzimmerkonzert) in Frankfurt, Germany this past weekend and RTL TV did a nice little story, which aired on Monday, Febuary 18th at 6:30 pm CET. Very blessed.


Also, here goes so cool art that might make the CD, whose audio is ready to hear! I am so very proud and thankful to all of you for supporting my music dream.

All the tracks are now available  for FREE on right here
OR if you have Euros – and are really nice – you can buy them here, and the first several folks can name your price.

Thanks so much and enjoy!
Jake

Whuuuuh???? I’m in a German newspaper?!

Jake gets in the paper for something doing something good for once!

How exciting = my first printed press! And it’s in Germany.  Uh, for those of you who don’t know – I’m actually on a mini-tour over here, based in Mannheim. The gig was actually this past weekend = an absolute blast sharing some of the songs from my upcoming record, LEAP YEAR. I can’t wait to get this record out to you!

And, before I left the US, we had a successful Kickstarter campaign  and shot my first pro music video for one of the songs as a thank you to my supporters – Check it out below.

Also – PLEASE PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS at the end of the video 😉   Thanks!

A BIG FUGGIN’ DAY

Yesterday was immense.

My Kickstarter was funded – YEY!!! The recording engineer already sent me mixes that are sounding friggin’ awesome; I shot my first professional music video and it’s going to turn out great; And I got to hang out with my sister one last time and we didn’t fight again – the past month is a record for us 😀 And – Uh… I can finally focus on going to Germany in less than 48 hours!!!!

I’d like to thank all of those who took part in my Kickstarter – your rewards are on their way. Robert Dyson at Wizkid Sound in Atlanta for making the record happen on time; all the models and people coming out to be in the “Better Bring Candy” video last night. And my kickass friends and family for making my life perfect.

I love you all,
Jake
