Retro Man

Jake Vaadeland

July 2021

18 year old Jake Vaadeland is a self taught multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Cut Knife, SK. His traditional sound and unique style could be defined as a blend of Bluegrass and 50s Rockabilly, with Jake specializing on guitar and banjo in addition to his impressive vocals, all packaged in foot stomping, high energy performances with The Sturgeon River Boys. Jake's debut EP, Retro Man highlights his writing style, with a focus on storytelling and messages that he hopes his audience can relate to. “He cut a foppish figure and seemed to have stepped right off of a Greyhound Scenic Cruiser double-decker bus, fresh from the fertile plains of Saskatchewan, bound for Music City with a pocket full of songs, a guitar, and the dog-eared stub of a one-way ticket. Jake had just enough attitude to let you know that he wasn’t kidding…a healthy dose of bravado and svelte, and a double dose of knowing who he was and where he wanted to go while working out for himself how to get there.” – Mississippi Chris Sharp, The Bluegrass Standard, Rancho Mirage, California
