Jake Dunn & the Blackbirds
Jake Dunn and the Blackbirds bio: 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 newest release, Cosmic Americans, pushes the Blackbirds to new heights in the circuit, further establishing their reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the MOV.
