If you closed your little peepers for 2 minutes whilst lending an ear to Lighting Bolt below, Im reckonin’ you’d agree with me that this here track seems more 1955 Southern Americana then 2012 Nottingham.
Despite looking as quintessentially English as beans on toast, Jakes take on country American folk is refreshingly naff and waistcoat free. Influenced by the greats and originators of blues, (Dylan, Hendrix and Beatles), this nipper at only 17 has written tracks of skill, urgency and craft that demand airplay.
A debut of such exciting quality, you can already hear the distant sounds of tent-seams a-stretching.
