Jake's second album, “Common Ground” is available now. A collaboration with virtuoso guitar duo Lot Lorien, “Common Ground” re-energises traditional British folk lyrics with new musical settings, placing Jake's instantly-recognisable English voice against Bulgarian-tinged rhythms and melodies, and showcasing his distinctive Del Vecchio Dinâmico resonator guitar on its intricate instrumental tracks.
Jake’s extraordinary debut album, “All’s Well”, imagines the final thoughts of Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott and the members of his polar party, as they faced certain death on their return journey from the South Pole. Released 100 years after these tragic events unfolded, “All’s Well” was praised by relatives and descendants of the polar team, endorsed by the Scott Polar Research Institute, and described as “a cultural masterpiece for the Scott centenary”.
In 2013, Jake travelled to Antarctica to perform “All’s Well” in its entirety in Captain Scott’s original expedition hut at Cape Evans.
