Jakob Battick is a Berkeley, CA-based singer/songwriter, 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. It is both the first full-length album released under his own name and the first since his relocation to California (Battick spent his formative years and early adulthood playing in various bands throughout his home state.) The album was written over a tumultuous two year period in the singer's life, and recorded with a small backing band in an Oakland basement studio.
