Hi everybody! Last six months has been very quiet for me. I haven`t been well at all-really tired and almost unable to do anything-in fact I`ve been even too tired to play the guitar. So I finally went to see the doctor and finally, it was diagnosed a cancer.
It`s going to be surgery later this spring-just went thru radiation- and chemotherapy- this morning was the last time
Anyhow-I`m sure that I`ll be better later ( as a nurse put it " It`s not a dead sentence!") and it`s not.
I wish you all a best of health. Peace! Jake

HI everyone! Hope you haven't been sick and your summer's been GREAT. It's only august but here in north the summer is fading away-so maybe today really is "the Last Day of Summer." There's a little bit of melancholy in there (of course) but it's not the end of the world! The fall is beautiful and the winter too..I hope you have time to listen the song and if you want to make a comment please do! For now: Stay healthy&safe and-PEACE! Jake.Read more

Hi everybody! Summer is here and that cursed covid is fading away....Great times I really hope you haven't been sick!
And yes I've added 4 new songs!
1. ROCK 'n ROLL LIFE (not) : song is about the misunderstanding what it is to a musician: not playing music but you know-drink every day and.. you know what I mean! And there seem to be people who live that kinda life but has nothing to do with music.
2. MONDAY BLUE: now this is what I call "slow music". If you're in hurry skip it and come back later. Lyrics : monday afternoon in a bar, a little bit drunk - there's a big window and you can see the street like in a shop window. Yes I've been a bit of a drunk-not anymore thou and I DON'T recommend it. But of course everybody makes decision him/herself.
3. BEAUTIFUL CRIME: Okay it's not beautiful or wonderful-sarcasm is the word. Seems to me that the criminal could be a police as well? BLM.
4. SOLDIER OF BAD FORTUNE: This is very personal-I really was for many years my own worst enemy. I hurt myself in so many ways and I was in fact in war against ME. Thats of course very harmful and down right stupid. Love yourself! You'll do fine! For now: hope you got time to listen and I wish you a great summer (and winter in New Zealand..)PEACE! JAKE

Hello and thank you everybody again! And special thanks to the new subscribers. It`s so amazing to think that someone is actually listening my music and I thought I should..well to tell you something about myself as a musician.
I`ve done a lot: various kind of gigs playing guitar, bass, keyboards and sing. Rock`n Roll, ballroom dancing, blues, guitar bands (like the Shadows I mean) playing guitar and sing alone and sing-along. And of course playing classical guitar. In bars, weddings, birthdays, christmas parties, streets, even at funerals. I`ve been teaching guitar at home and as a substitute teacher at the local conservatory. In which I´m a still a student trying to get my exam done on classical guitar ( and it`s of course closed now). Worked here in Finland ( oh yes we are so happy) but couple of times in the link. and France.
It`s been mostly interesting, fun and rewarding . Some money honey too ( I am rich! (not)) There`s been negative things as well: have to "fight" for that money (whats been agreed and whats not) music is not right ( whats been link.)playing among the drunks shouting "play Paranoid!!" ( God bless them!) guys in the band can`t play and disappear all of the sudden ( and are drunk..) car breaks up(down!), you`ll get home at seven a clock in the morning...But as I said mostly FUN.
Wait a minute..how about writing sons? Been done that too as you know but that really needs another letter. Till next time:
PEACE! STAY HEALTHY! WASH HANDS! LOVE! Jake.
