Jacob Augustine is an experimental folk musician from the Northern woods of Maine. He has lived all over the country, crisscrossing the United States performing for over a decade in various projects. While living in California in 2008 he recorded his first full-length album entitled Harmonia, which was then released in early 2009, just months after moving back to Maine to live in the Portland area.... Harmonia was named a Top Ten Album of the Year by The Portland Phoenix and the single "High Water" received airplay on radio stations across the country.
In mid-July of this year, Jacob released the Bikini Island EP, comprised of 4 songs that he had written and recorded during the The Original Love sessions. Jacob, in talking about Bikini Island says, "the EP is a collection of songs I recorded in the summer of 2011 in the same sessions of seclusion as "The Original Love". They seemed like a such a bizarre excursion from the norm of what I was doing at the time that I didn't release them. They practically made me feel uneasy and I really didn't want anyone to hear them, ever. But, naturally, friends always have a way of persuading a man. This EP is my most out of body experimental jaunt into possible sonic embarrassment yet."
