album with BMG and is announcing Part Two of his "Fear
& Love Tour - Ireland Edition"
. From October
Oct 18th to 22nd to play venues he didn't make on his
last tour. 2017 has been a big year for Jake with the
release of Fear & Love in January with appearances
on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, E Street Radio,

Plus the song All Undone was just named the "Coolest

The album was recorded at A Room With No VU -Empire
Studios in Belleville Ontario, Steve Van Zandt's Renegade
Studio in New York City, Sick Island Studios, Nashville
and mixed at House of Blues Studio "D" in Nashville.
Fear & Love features the musician offering a bewitching
hint of how much he has to say as an artist and how
eloquently he says it.
Reflecting on the album Jake says: "Fear & Love is
a journey that forges through loss & hardship and attempts
to reconcile those challenges until finding its way
to the freedom of being vulnerable and honest, mostly
Creating his band in 2010, Clemons has divided his time
amongst touring the world with his own music (performing
at venues and legendary 'Living Room' shows across the
globe) and spending the last five years as the tenor
and baritone saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen's E
Street band (stepping in for his Uncle, the late Clarence
Clemons.) Clemons explores a range of emotions through
the eleven song CD, beginning with a cacophony of hurricane
warnings and culminating into an exhilarating collision
of restlessness and romance. Singing, playing guitar
and a multitude of other instruments (including the
muscular tenor saxophone heard in the songs "Undone,"
"Just Stay" and "A Little Bit Sweet,")
Fear & Love is the newest chapter in Clemons' musical
Reflecting on his new release, Jake states: "The idea
of having a theme and a concept for each record is due
to a conversation that I had with Bruce." "Fear & Love
is more introspective than his previous releases. This
album reflects the 'right now" that you feel inside
as opposed to the 'right now' that is external."
