Jake Simmons & the Little Ghosts / Bio

Jake Simmons, one of two songwriting talents behind the excellent (but now defunct) Dead Scene Radio, is back. With a hand picked supporting cast and unapologetic swagger, Jake is taking his blend of punk, rock, country, pop and folk out of a southwest Michigan garage and onto your turntable. With the Little Ghosts (essentially a complete motown-era rhythm machine) in lockstep, Jake's live show swings wildly from soulful acoustic ballads, to catchy doo-wop, to cascading sheets of caterwauling feedback. Always brash, always honest, usually with a middle fucking finger to convention, Jake is a true archetypical midwestern singer-songwriter who laces up his steel-toed work boots each day without a hint of irony.
