The seed for Drunken Logic was planted when frontman Jake Cassman walked away from an Ivy League education, determined to forge a “surprisingly cohesive blend of pop punk and emotionally-charged folk rock” (Sound of Boston). The band’s first incarnation formed at Berklee College of Music in 2012. Ever since, Drunken Logic has been brewing a powder keg of eclectic influences and potent, topical lyrics in their shoddy Boston apartments. Accolades and accomplishments quickly followed the release of their debut album Something New to Burn in 2013 — they rocked AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants), were named RAW:Boston’s 2013 Musicians of the Year, opened for Ed Kowalcyzk (formerly of Live), and were selected to Berklee’s 2014 CMJ Showcase.The band recently released their second album, Long Day’s Journey to the Middle, “a complete and sprawling thought” that “is not only worth of repeat listens, it requires them” (Speak Into My Good Eye), and their music video for the song “This Side or the Other” was just selected to the Southeast New England Film Festival.
Drunken Logic enjoy a unique and formidable live chemistry honed during busking performances at Boston’s Faneuil Hall, which hosts 18 million visitors annually. Cassman, talented multi-instrumentalist Ryan Jordan, and virtuosic guitarist Austin Wells have built upon and added to an already ambitious artistic vision. Drunken Logic are constantly reinventing their brand of music while battling the elements of contemporary America — and loving every minute of it.
