FOR FANS OF: BENJAMIN FRANCIS LEFTWICH, FLEET FOXES, SUFJAN STEVENS

Inspired by the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Fleet Foxes and described by BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne as “sublime,” Newcastle singer-songwriter Jake Houlsby is becoming a master at weaving haunting soundscapes using just voice and intricate guitar melodies.
Having racked up over a million plays on Spotify since releasing his debut EP ‘Yannina’ in 2015, Houlsby has been championed not only by Laverne but also by Tom Robinson, and has received extensive coverage on renowned music blogs across the world.
His sincere songwriting and adaptable playing style has also seen him play with artists as diverse as Gaz Coombes, The Lone Bellow and Paper Aeroplanes in recent times.
