Folks say David Jacobs-Strain writes songs about the Northwest the way Lucinda Williams writes about the South or Tom Petty captures Southern California. The promise of Terraplane Angel, produced by Ray Kennedy [Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Ray Davies], resides in the fertile cross of blues, rock and masterful songwriting from a true West Coast pioneer. Relentless touring has formed Jacobs-Strain into a performer of rare strength and virtuosity. He augments fluid fingerstyle guitar work with slide and percussive drive to create tone that conjures an entire electric jam band. His voice carries the emotion that his songs demand.
Produced and recorded by Ray Kennedy at Room & Board, Nashville, Tennessee.
