Gifted singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jake Clemons is a magnet for positive energy and emotion, consistently sharing stories and thoughts about life, his beliefs and experiences through music. Jake is looking forward to bringing that positive message back to the live stage in 2022 with “THE REANIMATIONS TOUR”.
In late 2019 Jake released his latest album, “Eyes On The Horizon” which he was planning on touring throughout 2020. Of course we all know Covid 19 had other plans. With this release Clemons has once again created a new chapter, this time taking it a step further by adding his voice to those seeking to find clarity in a complicated world and expanding both his musical vision and philosophical perspective.
The album (the follow up to his 2013 EP Embracing Light and his 2017 album Fear & Love,) was co-produced by Clemons and Jake Hull and mixed by legendary and award winning producer and engineer Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, etc.) Clemons plays guitar, sax and keyboards on Eyes On The Horizon and composed 9 of the 10 songs on the album.
Clemons singles out Eyes On The Horizon as a statement about the need to reach towards something better. “We always have to carry that hope with us,” he says. “We have to use it to look towards the horizon.”
Jake’s vast array of musical endeavors over the past decade have made him a familiar figure around the world. From recording and/ or performing with Eddie Vedder, Glen Hansard, Tom Morello, Prophets of Rage, Roger Waters, US Girls as well as touring the world, to performing his own music with The Jake Clemons Band and spending the last 10 years as the tenor and baritone saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band including appearing on Springsteen’s latest album “Letter To You” and the companion Apple TV Documentary.
“I process my life through my music and I hope that there’s always growth in whatever I do,” Clemons suggests. “I definitely feel that with this new album. I took some chances on this record that I didn’t dare do before. The approach is certainly a little more aggressive than what people might not have heard or expected from me before.”
