JAKE DUNN

& THE BLACKBIRDS

 

Originally from Pomeroy, Ohio, lead singer and primary songwriter, Jake Dunn writes with a familiar Midwestern heart, singing about life, love, and loss. The group features guitar work influenced heavily by acts like The Outlaws and Lynyrd Skynyrd, yet retains the subtleties and songwriting talent of artists like Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Their sound, held together by a solid yet ambitious rhythm section, sits somewhere in between Americana and Roots Rock, focusing heavily on lyrics and musicianship.

Their upcoming release Cosmic Americans, dropping in late spring 2019, looks to push the Blackbirds to new heights in the circuit, further establishing their reputation as the hardest working band in the MOV.

"“Cosmic Americans” is a full-throttle Jake Dunn and the Blackbirds album. The boys have found their collective sound as a five-piece, and they’re leaning in hard on their talents. Soaring harmonies, screaming guitar duels, and hooks you’ll be singing days later. The best band in the MOV just released their best album yet. Don’t miss it."

-COREY SHIELDS (HOLD THE NOTE)

"Many of the tracks are slow rollers which build around great songwriting and excellent musicianship, all using different lenses to focus on characters that you'd see on the streets of any small town in working-class America"

-Chad Cochran (Hold The Note)

"Jake Dunn and his boys are crafting music that lies largely at the very American intersection of country music and psychedelic rock."

-Emily Votaw (WOUB PUBLIC MEDIA)

Jake Dunn & The Blackbirds debut EP is warm, heartfelt, and oozes of homegrown Ohio alt country rock & roll meant for late night whiskey sing-a-longs and long highway drives. “

”The songs are genuine, they rock and are delicate at the same time. Lonesome and reflective like Ryan Adam’s Heartbreaker, Jake Dunn & The Blackbirds are a def. a band to watch this year. Looking forward to seeing what’s next!
— Angela Perley (Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons)
