File under: folk punk

When Jacob Jones isn’t chasing down leads for the pages of The Inlander news section, he’s serving his heart on a platter to audiences. Sometimes as Radio Cavalier, but at Volume as a solo act, Jones furiously strums a guitar and sings folk-punk ballads about hard drinking, hard work and hard living. It’s music that you’d expect to come out of an Irish pub town like Boston, but these are tunes forged right here in the Northwest.
