In early 2019, Jake Davis & The Whiskey Stones released their first full-length, studio album, Out in the Weeds. The album features 12 tracks spanning a healthy gamut of genres that includes rock, jazz, blues, country, bluegrass, and folk. That diverse combination may leave the listener at a loss as to exactly how to describe Jake’s music, but at Folk New Hampshire, we simply call it “Americana.”
The album was a project of Marc McElroy of The Electric Cave who recorded, mixed, and mastered it and supplied keyboards and shaker on a couple of tunes. Artwork was handled beautifully by Jake’s own mother, Margaret Dwyer. The lineup on the album included Jake on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Old Time Dave Talmage on banjo, fiddle, and vocals, John Webb on electric guitar, Eben Hearn on drums and Chris Noyes on upright bass.
