Jake Jones released his first full-length album, From Time to Time, in July 2016. The 10-song album highlights Jake’s willingness to expose his life in a candid, passionate way that is wholly relatable and, at times, hauntingly captivating. Drawing inspiration from Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Sturgill Simpson, and Jason Isbell, From Time to Time takes listeners on a 39-minute journey through life’s rawest emotions. From the allure of chasing one’s dreams, to unraveling the complexities of failed relationships and confronting the cold solitude of depression, Jake’s songwriting opens doors to places we’ve all been before.
Flying Buffaloes represents the essence and energy of the current musical climate in Nashville; the converging of the traditional country honky-tonk mentality with the new wave of gritty East Nashville rock & roll. Their sound is reminiscent of The Eagles, vocally, with Beatles-esque harmony and a swampy, Rolling Stones-meets-CCR rhythm section. Country influences like Waylon Jennings. Willie Nelson, and Chris Stapleton really shine through in Flying Buffaloes songwriting, instrumentation, and lyrics.
The Federales: Classic country for the modern world. We’re not from the Black Hills, the Texas Panhandle or Appalachia. We’re from the Twin Cities. Damn proud of it, too, but we play country music, because it’s one of America’s native languages.
We use it to tell our stories of love, good times, Grain Belt & friends. Some are fact. Some are fiction with the truth hiding in there somewhere. All of them are heartfelt. We’re pickers, fiddlers, groovers & harmonizers. We’re ready to make you sing along, get up and dance or just sit and tap your toes. We’re The Federales.
