Big Rude Jake / Bio

Singer/songwriter Big Rude Jake is a true musical innovator, a deft craftsman of song and a powerful, compelling lyricist. He’s been knocking audiences dead with his impassioned performances for over 25 years across North America & Europe.

Noted for his skill as a blues shouter and the ‘swing punk’ sound of his early albums, he’s especially drawn to the roots of American music. You’ll hear blues, jazz, swing, rockabilly, jump, gospel, folk and his distinctive fingerpicking ragtime guitar. Add a little cabaret and some punk attitude, and you’ve got Big Rude Jake.
