Jake Swamp and The Pine. Great name for a band, right? Only. this band is one guy. One very talented artist with a robust sound. The artist who plays as Jake Swamp and the Pine is Drew Zieff. The name only emphasizes the creativity that’s oozing from it’s creator.
His sound? A little folk, a little rock, a little country, a little bluegrass. But, there’s also a whole lot of a gifted singer/songwriter. From what I’m hearing, Jake Swamp and the Pine was born to be heard live. You can feel the emotion in his guitar, and his vocals take you on winding journey, up and around bends of inflection. There’s sheer joy that resounds in the making of his craft. You can get all that just from listening to one song.
The latest release from JSATP’s debut album is called “Drive, Drive, Drive,” and honestly, it may drive you to drive. The original song is a car jam. It’s starts out reflective and tender, but builds up to where you are moved to join in. The 4x New England Music Award nominee for Americana Artist of the Year has something special to offer on those drives, or wherever you appreciate good music. Jake Swamp and the Pine’s artistry is certainly worthy of your time.
