FOR FANS OF: BON IVER, JEFF BUCKLEY, JOHN MARTYN
London based singer/songwriter JAKL is an artist with piano-led folk based songs which previously landed him a series of impressive gigs such as Glastonbury Festival and a sold-out headline Communion Music show at The Waiting Room, London. JAKL has also secured extensive national radio airplay on stations such as XFM, BBC and BBC 6 Music.
Definitely an artist flying the flag for the folk genre, especially with his new single “Shadows”, JAKL belts out some heart-warming and touching lyrics. Part of a musical dynasty (his father is an accomplished opera singer), JAKL was only bound for such trappings. His influences blend the likes of Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley and John Martyn – all of which can be detected, along with his early classical influences within his sound.
