"Springing from the backwaters of Brackenfell with the hair of Robert Plant, the skill of boy Clapton and the voice of a morning-afternight-before Mark Knopfler, Gunn is a revelation." -Alice Inggs, Rolling Stone South Africa
Jake Gunn is an up and coming blues rock musician hailing from the northern suburbs of Cape Town. After discovering rock ‘n roll at a young age, he was inspired to start playing guitar and worked tirelessly to improve his skill. This finally led to him joining the Lyzyrd Kyngs (Piet Botha & Akkedis) in 2010. He spent a year under the mentorship of these veteran musicians, before teaming up with the talented young guitarist Devin Smith.
The launch of Gunn’s first album 'Triple Jack' was met with great praise and a favourable review in Rolling Stone magazine. Containing a wide range of original songs, as well as one cover, the album showcases Gunn’s skill and multiple influences.
Audiences can expect to hear material off the album as well as Gunn’s adaptations of songs from the likes of Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. Performing either with Devin Smith, as an acoustic duo, or with the full band, Gunn’s music is bound to entertain and impress.
