“Our music is very ornately arranged – our full band lineup is so talented that you have a several really powerful musical voices all working together. Stripping down these songs to just one instrument and voice brings the energy down a little bit, but also really lets the song and lyrics shine through. I just hope I can do justice to these songs and the brilliant musicians who recorded them.”

Drunken Logic’s “What A Beautiful Morning!” video is an official selection for Direct Short Online Film Festival for the month of June!
“Sometimes things just fall together in the right way and you find yourself in a band where the sum of the parts may be greater than the whole; and you make great music cooperatively. Case in point: Jake Cassman (piano and vocals), Austin Wells (lead guitar and vocals) and Ryan Jordan (rhythm guitar, keys, mandolin and vocals), as individually talented a trio as you can find today in New England.”
Listen to Jake’s conversation with Lou Lombardi about the birth of Drunken Logic and their new song/video, “What A Beautiful Morning!”
“The song and video have been garnering quite a bit of critical acclaim; not only for the music itself but for the viewpoint of the lyrics at hand.”
“That night when I was in bed, I suddenly had this vision for the “What A Beautiful Morning!” video. I stayed up through the morning writing and researching, coming with a concept and outline for it…I’d never gone completely sleepless because of artistic inspiration before, so I knew this was an idea worth chasing.”
“‘Of ‘What a Beautiful Morning!’, a song indebted to sunny ’60s pop-rock, the band writes that it was ‘written from the perspective of someone who mourns an idyllic vision of the U.S. in the 1950s and early ’60s — an era of safety and stability, at least in his mind. The song’s accompanying video uses existing footage from the era to suggest that this vision was never truly a reality, and was brutally withheld from millions of people.’
At least now, in 2016, our reality isn’t so blurred.”
“Released over the weekend were a bevy of songs from artists like Kyle Craft, Local Natives, Anthony D’Amato, Greg Holden, Laura Gibson and Dave Depper, I Said Yes, and, Drunken Logic…”
