Jake Spicer

JakeSpicer

Jake Spicer is a modern folk tale, told bold, with all the hallmarks of a free troubadour. With a manly growl and talent spanning the singer songwriter genre, his gritty yet sweet vocal performances suffuses into some sublime guitar work, with a depth belying the youthful geezer.

A regular performer playing gigs up and down the country, his soul sits between the strong music connections of Shropshire and Bristol. As well as playing live sessions for BBC Introducing and the Shropshire Folk Show, Jake also gets regular air time on both Shropshire and Bristol BBC radio.
