About Fall Concert: Harrison Goodell & Jake Swamp and the Pine

Young superstars Harrison Goodell & Jake Swamp and the Pine (Drew Zieff) will hit the Fruitlands fall stage for an incredible night of music on Thursday, September 26!

Harrison Goodell

Hailing from seacoast New Hampshire, singer-songwriter Harrison Goodell was raised on American staples like Tom Petty, Paul Simon, and Billy Joel who serve as inspiration to his own sound. Their same troubadour essence is carried into his songwriting as he portrays vulnerable stories from his life and relationships. Harrison uses his songwriting as a window into his subconscious; a bridge to his intuition and honesty. Harrison’s obsessive dedication to music and pure grit lead him to his biggest achievements to date including his run on ABC’s American Idol and opening for Grammy-nominated artist JP Saxe in Burlington, VT. Harrison’s recent success has connected him to a dedicated New England audience who continue to sell out venues. With his passion for creating music that resonates with his followers, Harrison is establishing himself as an artist to watch in the industry.

Jake Swamp and the Pine

At the end of a long day traversing the White Mountains, when the sun has laid down behind the horizon and the shush of the forest descends, you sit by the campfire and crack open the cold beverage of your choice. Surrounded by friends or family, you realize this is the best possible place you could be right now. This is the feeling that Jake Swamp and the Pine captures with their music. The name Jake Swamp and the Pine provides that context, as it was inspired by the Jake Swamp pine tree – the tallest tree in MA and is honoring Jake Swamp – a prominent environmentalist.

At the end of 2022, JSATP released their debut album, Simpson and Banks, named after the cross streets in Somerville, MA where the band was formed. Within those cross streets, hours and hours of practice, laughing, writing, struggling with creating social content had been held. There were many moments of life that were revisited because of the writing and reflecting that happened there, so it felt only fitting to honor that with the album name. Those beautiful and confusing moments of life are captured and distilled into each song on the album.

Simpson and Banks received praise from many prestigious publications including Americana UK, who noted that a “Gloriously atmospheric vocals carry a set of passionate, emotive and classy songs.” (read more)

Jake Swamp and the Pine songs range from powerful acoustic anthems to knee-slapping hoedowns to slow and somber waltzes, drawing on diverse influences from the Americana, folk, singer-songwriter, bluegrass, and jam band traditions. With a collection of original songs and covers of artists, there’s always something to stomp, clap, or holler along to. Country 102.5 said “Jake Swamp and the Pine was born to be heard live. You can feel the emotion in his guitar, and his vocals take you on winding journey, up and around bends of inflection. There’s sheer joy that resounds in the making of his craft. You can get all that just from listening to one song.”

JSATP has been nominated four years in a row for the Boston Music Awards Americana Act of the Year, as well as New England Music Awards Americana Act of the Year.
