Jakob Battick was born in Bangor, ME, in 1989. His work encompasses both music and visual art, with the twin poles of songwriting and drawing being his main focuses. In the summer of 2015 he relocated to Berkeley, CA, where he has lived and worked since.

"To Be Born Again & Again", his latest project, is a full-length album of slow motion, ethereal country-folk written and recorded over the last three years in the Bay Area.
