We are squeezing an extra bonus Thursday Night Music Club into March, as frankly, we couldn’t turn down a tour date from the brilliant Jake Martin. As an added bonus, he is bringing along for a ride Jess Silk, an artist who is new to us, but sounds like just our cup of tea! Magic!

We are squeezing an extra bonus Thursday Night Music Club into March, as frankly, we couldn’t turn down a tour date from the brilliant Jake Martin. As an added bonus, he is bringing along for a ride Jess Silk, an artist who is new to us, but sounds like just our cup of tea! Magic!

Jake is an energetic and charismatic folk punk singer/songwriter from the UK. Jake intelligently blends the art of story telling; depicting tales of life, love, and the road, with dark wit, politics, and his own cheeky brand of cider fuelled humour. Add Jake’s witty ability to captivate and animate any room of strangers, his memorable sing along anthems, and the occasional bit of furniture climbing, and the result is an electrifying “every show like it’s the last” performance.

Jess Silk is a guitarist, singer and songwriter from the Black Country. Her shouty but melodic brand of folk/punk music often has her being likened to a female Frank Turner or Billy Bragg, and it gets people sitting up and listening. Armed only with an increasingly sticker-covered acoustic guitar and a distinctive, gravely voice that many don’t expect, Jess plays to audiences up and down the country and has shared stages with many well known names among the folk/punk scene.
