Schemes That Are Not Doomed to Come to Nothing

by Jake Manning

Haunting stripped back vocals, 12 string finger picking, a unique style from a musician inspired by the playing of Bert Jansch, the lyrics of Neil Young and the brilliance of Blind Willie McTell. Perfect for dreamy contemplation. And pond fans.

Album Notes
This is Jake's debut EP and includes some of his most popular early songs. It was recorded at the incredible Wolftone Studios in London (where Adele developed 21 and Florence and the Machine recorded Ceremonials). It was produced by Joseph Hartwell Jones who engineered on Ceremonials and worked last year with Friendly Fires, The Big Pink and Paul McCartney.

The EP was recorded in one day and is a stripped back and intimate presentation of Jake's captivating 12 string finger picking style, and sometimes amusing, sometimes poignant lyrics. The melodies can be soothing or exhilarating but are always original, with the songs themselves occupying a unique space in a bountiful musical offering.
