    Jake Gunn is an up and coming blues rock musician hailing from the northern suburbs of Cape Town. After discovering rock ‘n roll at a young age, he was inspired to start playing guitar and worked tirelessly to improve his skill, which finally led to him joining the Lyzyrd Kyngs (Piet Botha & Akkedis) in 2010. He spent a year under the mentorship of these veteran musicians, before teaming up with the talented young guitarist Devin Smith.

    Sharing a love of music and complementing each other’s guitar playing, they started doing gigs around Cape Town, followed by a tour up the coast. They later evolved into a full electric band after being joined by CJ Bergh and Allen Smith. Jake Gunn’s first album Triple Jack, recorded in the winter of 2012, is now available and includes the song “Radio Mojo” which was featured in the Rolling Stone Rock Chart of 19 January 2013.

    “Springing from the backwaters of Brackenfell with the hair of Robert Plant, the skill of boy Clapton and the voice of a morning-afternight-before Mark Knopfler, Gunn is a revelation.” -Alice Inggs, Rolling Stone SA
