Jakob Battick is a Berkeley, CA-based singer/songwriter. He was born and raised in Bangor, Maine. His music is a hazy daydream of folk and country forms, half faithful to the cosmic American tradition and half hypnotized and droning into the 21st century.
His latest album, "To Be Born Again & Again", is a hushed and deeply spiritual work of outsider country songwriting. Its seven songs are both haunting and beautiful, often set at a psychedelic, slow-motion crawl and painted in a sonic palette that is nocturnal and highly ethereal.
The Portland, Maine based art book publishing press + record label Wilt Press will be releasing the album in early October, and a three-week solo tour of the United States will follow.
