Album Notes
I wanted to make a CD that reflected the kind of bluesy alternative folk you would hear if you saw me play live. As such, half of the recordings are just me and my guitar; a few more also feature my friend and longtime musical collaborator Chris Monti on backing vocals and guitar or mandolin; and a few others have a larger sound, and are intended to give a sense of what it's like when I perform with my band the Killdevils or sit in with another great Providence band, the Superchief Trio.

The oldest songs on the CD, 'Lady Luck' and 'Watching Killer Robots Eat Your Head', were written in 2005, while the most recent one, 'Mistaken Identity', was written in late 2008. There's a mixture of songs that I wrote for friends and family, songs written for my own amusement, songs written for the Rhode Island Songwriters Association's 'Songwriters in the Round' series, as well as songs based on true events, songs that I made up out of whole cloth, songs that are relatively serious, and songs that are just plain goofy. I hope that anyone who listens to the CD will find something to enjoy.

Great CD!
Buying Mistaken Identity is really like getting to see Jake in concert whenever you feel like it. (Except with high end digitally-remastered sound quality and no background noise.) The bluesy-alternative folk style of the music combined with the clever lyrics are really fun! I recommend this cd to anyone who likes to smile while listening to music.
