Jake William Capistran is a Portland-based singer and multi-instrumentalist whose unique blend of folk, rock, and soul can be heard up and down the west coast. Featuring the simple accompaniment of an acoustic guitar or piano, or the support of his [up to] eight-piece backing band, Capistran's live-performances are as dynamic as his records, spanning the distance from bombastic pop to intimate singer-songwriter.
Hailing from Massachusetts, Jake cut his teeth in the Boston music scene fronting the heavy-hitting five-piece, Geometrist until relocating to Portland, Oregon in 2015.
His first release under his own name, 2016's GONERS EP, racked up over 100,000 plays in the year of its release. His newest record, 2017's concept-driven Rodeo EP, was featured in Portland's VORTEX magazine along with a live, in-studio video for his breakout single, Goners.
In 2019 Jake will be releasing his debut full-length album.
