I am very excited to be releasing my new Album DIAMONDS AND STONES. 

For the last three years I have played my street show for seven months of the year every Friday and Saturday night on Beale Street in Memphis, TN outside of People's Pool Hall. The rest of the year I have traveled. For the duration of that time I have played with my good friend and drummer Roy Cunningham. The fun times we have had and the pleasure that I have had making music in the open air to thousands of strangers every weekend has been more than a magical experience. I have many people to thank for that and if you have seen us play on Beale Street or elsewhere you are one of them. 

Now the time has come for us to move on from Beale Street. Time for us to hit the road and visit all the people that have come to visit us over the past years. We have made fans from every state in the nation and many countries over seas.

So.....

In May we traveled to New York and hooked up with my long time bass player Carlos Arias to record the ten songs that have become the album DIAMONDS AND STONES. 

I wanted to make a record that captured our time on Beale Street, to record the rhythms and songs that we created live night in and night out. While the album is different than a live performance the sentiment is the same. To make good music, to make the music we love and to have a good time making it. 

We have enjoyed meeting every one of you and been thankful for all your support!

Please come along and join us on our journey. 

DIAMONDS AND STONES WILL BE RELEASED by January 2013. This is your chance to get an early download of the album by October 15th 2012. 

Thank you all!! 

Jake Lear
