Jake will play the Deaf Institute in Manchester on the 25th July and Upstairs at Highbury Garage on 21st July.

‘Day One’ marks the first solo outing for Jake and was recorded at Big Red, his studio in Macclesfield, in between tours with Jimi Goodwin for his own solo project. Both Jimi and former bandmate and New Order founding member Bernard Sumner contributed to sessions for ‘Day One’, Jimi on backing vocals and percussion whilst Bernard sang on an alternate take of ‘This Is Life’ which will be made available with a special edition of the album and downloads purchased through Itunes. A video for the album version of ‘This Is Life’ can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuI2ulZIkpw.
Over the ten tracks the album hints at gospel (‘Easy On My Soul’), dips a toe into psychedelia (‘Sun Goes Down’), flirts with the dancefloor (‘Telephone’) and nudges up against Augustus Pablo (‘Last One Standing’) but, at heart, is about Jake and his guitar.
Further dates will be announced shortly.
‘Day One’ is available to pre-order on the following formats from http://jakeevans.tmstor.es/:
