Jake Rodrigues : Lucky Spoon Self Released 22 July 2022

The one man band ‘Bert’ played by Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins is a lovable rogue. After entertaining the crowd he invites us to jump into his picture which transforms into a magical world full of excitement and vivid colour.  Another rogue and an actual one man band is Jake Rodrigues & like Bert he’s inviting you to jump into an exciting & colourful other world. The musical world that is ‘Lucky Spoon’.

Once inside the Lucky Spoon we soon find Jake is finally freed from the instruments strapped to his limbs & is itching to take you on a magical journey of sound and song. In this album songs of love & mirth rub shoulders with epic ballads. Banjos, trumpets, ukuleles & accordions fuse styles ranging from classic Beach Boy Barbershop to nostalgic Americana, from Pink Floyd to Nick Drake to the Beatles. Like the bells on his feet, honking car horn & buskers harmonica Jake sings & plays it all with originality, heart & a smile for the crowd.
