David Jacobs Strain
David has come a long way from slugging a bamboo gear cart with a tattered "Delta Blues" sign through the Oregon Country Fair mud at the age of 13. 12 years of solo shows, from the Sierra Nevada to the Berkeshires have made him into a performer of strength and virtuosity. His outrageous guitar work jumps from wild fingerstyle to slide and percussive drive produce enough tone to rival an electric jam band. And his voice carries an emotional intensity that his songs demand. David's newest record " Live from the Left Coast" is built on the raw energy and stripped down vibe that fans have been asking for: David on guitar, vocals, Bob beach on harmonica are all it takes to bring this set of mostly originals to life.
