Jake Martin (UK) + Luke Seymoup Band + Lewis Nixon + Leigh Hair + Pete Akhurst

Jake Martin is on his way around Aus promoting his album "We Take them at Dawn" which is out now through Dead Memory Records. This will be a night of acoustic jams with Luke Seymoup and band finishing it off.

"Jake Martin is an energetic and charismatic folk punk singer/songwriter from the UK. Jake intelligently blends the art of story telling; depicting tales of life, love, and the road, with dark wit, politics, and his own cheeky brand of cider fuelled humour. Add Jake's witty ability to captivate and animate any room of strangers, his memorable sing along anthems, and the occasional bit of furniture climbing, and the result is an electrifying “every show like it’s the last” performance.

In 2016 Jake leaves his home and life in the UK to continually travel and tour; to focus purely on his solo career.

Jake spent the last 8 years founding and fronting popular Brighton-based Skacore outfit The Junk, touring the UK and Europe several times over, and building a large loyal fan base. But with ambitions beyond the band, in 2014 Jake decided to start writing as a solo artist. His Debut EP “For F**k’s sake Jake” was released in September 2014 through ‘Aaahh Real Records', and since then Jake has toured relentlessly; sharing stages with the likes of Gaz Brookfield, Ferocious dog, Louis Distras, Rob Lynch, Ducking Punches, The Roughneck Riot, The Slackers, The JB Conspiracy, Smokey Bastard, B Sydes and many more.

“What Jake brings is a message of individuality, of rage turned to contemplation, of social comment and a gentle disdain for those still star struck by scene and celebrity. But more than that these messages are grafted on to songs that are so memorable, so accessible and so great that you will be singing them on the way home from the gig long before you revel in playing the CD the next day”

“Stories of life on the road and a love affair with touring, Jake Martin paints vivid a picture. If you get the chance to catch him live, don't hesitate!"
(Tom Simpkins- BBC Introducing )
