Jake Martin is an energetic and charismatic folk punk singer/songwriter from the UK. Jake intelligently blends the art of story telling; depicting tales of life, love, and the road, with dark wit, politics, and his own cheeky brand of cider fuelled humour. Add Jake's witty ability to captivate and animate any room of strangers, his memorable sing along anthems, and the occasional bit of furniture climbing, and the result is an electrifying “every show like it’s the last” performance.
