In a musical age where the beats are getting heavier, the production thicker, and the live performances more theatrical, Dustin Jake likes to keep things simple: Just him, an acoustic guitar, and a great song. With his smooth, soulful voice and groovy, undressed sound, Dustin is the epitome of effortlessness. A true acoustic artist. Ironically, though, it’s been his penchant for simplicity that has brought so much depth to his songwriting.
Dustin’s main satisfaction still comes from his ability to put a story onto a set of chords. He’s spent countless days and many late nights pouring over the subtleties of his ever-expanding song collection. Now, with a slew of new grooves – like early fan-favorite “Manhattan Beach Boulevard” – itching to break out of the songbooks, he’s ready to shed some new layers and tell some new tales. And he only needs a guitar to do it. It’s really that simple.
