Jake Dunn & The Blackbirds are an Americana-rock group from southeastern Ohio. The band consists of Jake Dunn (vocals/guitar), Dustin Nash (guitar), Chuck McPeek (guitar), Jesse Forrest (drums/vocals), and Bobby Wheeler (bass/vocals).
Originally from Pomeroy, Ohio, lead singer and primary song writer, Jake Dunn, now resides in Marietta, Ohio with the rest of the band living in the surrounding Mid-Ohio Valley and Columbus. The group is heavily influenced by 70’s rock and roll as well as country music artists such as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Their sound, while not quite rock and roll or country, sits somewhere in between Americana and Roots Rock, focusing heavily on lyrics and musicianship. Their more contemporary influences include Jason Isbell, Ryan Adams, Sturgle Simpson, and The Drive-by Truckers.
