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, early in 1912. “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”.
The CD comes with a 12-page booklet including notes, lyrics and images of original documents.
Jake’s second album, “Common Ground” is a stunning collaboration with Bulgarian / Polish virtuoso guitar duo Lot Lorien, featuring new musical settings of traditional British folksongs, interspersed with intricate guitar instrumentals.
The CD comes with a 16-page booklet that features David Eaves’ striking infra-red photographs taken in the Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa, alongside the lyrics that inspired them.
