JAKE SHEARS- Jake Shear
The eponymously titled solo debut from the Scissor Sisters frontman is an album brimming with anthemic choruses and lyrics about the joys and vagaries of love and sex – all of it underpinned by a swampy soul influence imparted from his newly adopted hometown New Orleans.
Recorded in Louisville, KY with producer Kevin Ratterman (Ray LaMontagne, My Morning Jacket) and in NOLA to capture the city’s signature sound with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Sturgill Simpson’s brass section. The result is a thrilling work that plays inside some of the hallmarks of classic American rock music and marries them with Jake’s inimitable point of view, humor, and gift for unforgettable hooks. Features members of MMJ, VHS or Beta, Jim James’ soloband, and Floating Action
