Hailing from Russia since 2011

The Jake Wood brings rhythmic mechanical beats, bluesy guitar riffs and straight forward lyrics. Since their formation in 2011 they released several recordings including two LP’s. “Jake Wood” their first LP recorded in Tomsk was released in December 2012. This album contains songs like “One More New Pleasure”, which is a slow swamp blues kind of song with here and there some psychedelic influences.

Second LP the Jake Wood – DEUS

The second LP Deus was released 2014 October. Song like “Back tonight” start with a blues feeling groove. Especially the guitar riff brings that rhytmic blues feeling I like. Later this song turns into the protopunk trademark style of The Jake Wood. You hear this through everything, including the wildromance vocals.
