Jake Jones released his first full-length album, From Time to Time, in July 2016.

Drawing inspiration from Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Sturgill Simpson, and Jason Isbell, From Time to Time takes listeners on a 39-minute journey through life’s rawest emotions. From the allure of chasing one’s dreams, to unraveling the complexities of failed relationships and confronting the cold solitude of depression, Jake’s songwriting opens doors to places we’ve all been before. http://jakejonesmusic.com/

As the recording process unfolded, it was clear that a new sound was developing and a new band was forming with it. The band mates all agreed that the new music should fly under another banner than Swallows, so J. Briozo was officially formed. J. Briozo will be releasing its debut album in the fall of 2017. Songs from the the band’s promotional EP Blind have been compared to Nick Drake, Elliott Smith, Wilco, Beck and The Beatles. http://www.jbriozo.com/
