Bio

In a brand new project, Jake Johnson (Gold Coast) under the moniker of Burning Jacobs Ladder is debuting with a chugging, fuzz-driven whirlwind of alternative rock in the single 'Danger In Me' (Out December 4).

Written, performed (bass, drums, guitar and vocals), mixed and mastered entirely by himself, Johnson has produced a track that not only marks his solo debut but showcases his wide skillset as a recording engineer and songwriter/ performer.

BJL pairs rolling rhythms on the drums with a wall of overdriven-guitar and bass riffs while more high-gained guitar layers generate swelling feedback and play melody lines and counter rock rhythms. Johnson's vocal delivery stays cool, calm and collected until he can let loose.

Johnson has no doubt come out strong, but there is plenty more that Burning Jacobs Ladder has to offer. This debut start will quickly be continued at the beginning of 2021.
