Jake Swamp & the Pine
At the end of a long day traversing the White Mountains, when the sun has laid down behind the horizon and the shush of the forest descends, there’s a certain feeling that builds around the campfire. This was the feeling that was intended to be captured by the music of Jake Swamp and The Pine.
Currently composed of Drew Zieff on guitar, vocals, and foot stomping percussion, and having formed in 2018, JSATP has toured relentlessly in the Greater Boston and New England region. Recent performances include The Middle East, Toad, Lizard Lounge, The Burren, City Winery, and Nightshift Brewery’s Brite Lites Music Festival in addition to partnering with SoFar Sounds for a number of concerts. Recently, the band finished 2019 and 2020 with two nominations at the Boston Music Awards (Americana Act of The Year, Drew Zieff for Vocalist of The Year).
Drew prides himself on bringing the ruckus and energy of a full band, while also being able to create an intimate space that is typically associated with a singer-songwriter, and can seamlessly ebb and flow between the two.
JSATP released a freshman EP in 2019 and three singles in 2020 (“Copilot”, “My Sister’s Old Guitar, and “Chapstick and Change”). Most recently released during the pandemic was the Outside the Studio Live EP. A live EP recorded 10 feet from the studio to capture both the recording studio quality and the energy of a live performance – something JSATP and fans missed terribly. This EP was a collaboration with Don Mitchell of Darlingside.
