I first heard of Austin-based guitarist Jake Andrews when he released his album Time to Burn in the late 90s. He released a second self-titled album a few years later, and then he kind of dropped off my radar. He’s still been creating music though and has recently uploaded an instrumental track to SoundCloud called “Solid” featuring Eric Johnson. I’ve embedded the track below. Enjoy!

Just found your blog. Really cool!!! This Jake Andrews cut is really nice, very solid no frills or flash just good stuff.
Hey Steve, thanks for stopping by! I highly recommend checking out Jake Andrews first two albums if you like this track.
Eric Johnson’s friend/drummer Tommy Taylor is on Jake Andrews album ‘Time To Burn’.
I didn’t know that. Thanks for the information!
The new album featuring the track Solid with Eric Johnson is on Jake Andrews’ latest EP – Livin’ in the Grave. Definitely worth the download – http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/livin-in-the-grave-ep/id426878886
Thanks for the info! I’ll check out the EP.
Jake has a real ear for a great lead. He is also a great guy. I began taking lessons about a year and a half ago with him. Absolutely amazing to be able to plug in to a vintage amp and work through pieces with him. Solid, from the last album is a collaboration with Eric Johnson. That, and Living in the Grave are two of my favorites off the current release.
Thanks for the information, Charlie. What a great opportunity to learn from Jake!
