Wild and Sweet: A Christmas Album

Jacob Johnson

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..."

According to co-writer and jazz legend Mel Torme, these words were penned on a spiral notebook on the hottest day of the year in July. Why write a Christmas song in July? The same reason I recorded a Christmas album in August.

To try and keep cool.

This is a collection of Christmas songs I've arranged and recorded over the past few years. This CD isn't perfect, but that's okay because I'm not a perfect musician. These songs, however, are about as close to perfect as songs can get. They're sacred. Meaningful. Nostalgic. The lyrics share the Good News with generation after generation of lonely star-gazers, and the melodies hang on your ear like a garland. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I enjoy playing them, and after Christmas comes and goes this year, I won't judge you if you pop this disc into your car stereo on a hot day in the middle of July. Gotta keep cool.

The Goodnight Chorus (live)

Jacob Johnson

My friend Gray Lee and I wrote this song about all the beautiful people we cross paths with through music. The audiences who come listen; the waiters, techs and promoters hard at work at the venue; the other musicians we share stages with; and even the characters we make up and put in our songs. You're probably in here somewhere too.

My new instrumental single Old Soul is now available on all major streaming platforms. I wrote Old Soul to sound lonesome but self-sufficient; homesick but restless. Like what Sinatra used to call his "Saloon Songs".... sung at 3am to an out-of-tune piano, usually about a "chick" who "split" or some other disappointment that takes the wind out of your sails but never sinks the ship.

Old Soul was recorded last year in sort of a mess-around session at Sit N Spin Studios in Greenville, SC. I've been playing it live off and on for the last year or so under various titles, but I thought it was time to give it a proper name and release it into the world. I hope you enjoy it!

One-Take Jake

Jacob Johnson

In cart Not available Out of stock

One-Take Jake is an all-acoustic album featuring brand new acoustic recordings of some of my older songs, along with some new tunes, and a few covers. Each song was tracked "in one”; vocals and guitar recorded together with no other instruments and no overdubs. I wanted to record an album that was a good representation of what I do live, and for better or worse, this is that album. There are mistakes, and I claim every one of them. But I’ll feel better letting you hear them than I would trying to hide them from you. Such is life.
