Clark Schpiell Productions is proud to announce the official debut album from singer/songwriter Jacob Carver (who also happens to be our very own Joseph Carson): Done Gone. Jake's music has been a favorite of ours for years (along with that of, our other resident musician, Eli, and his band, the Monolators), and his songs have been featured in many of Lucid by Proxy's plays. Jake's music is fantastic singer/songwriter stuff, in the style of Tom Waits, Tracy Chapman or Bruce Springsteen. Most of it is pretty melancholy, but all of it is beautiful.

We'll have an album review here (probably by an impartial guest writer) shortly. In the meantime, check out his website (, his myspace page ( and, for cripe's sake, buy his album on CDBaby.

More info (album cover photo by Dara Rosenwasser):

The core of Done Gone is Jake Carver, Seattle-based singer/songwriter. Born in North Dakota and coming of age when one wore the waists of one's jeans almost to the rib cage, Jake wandered throughout most of the '90s from Alaska down to Texas and up to Oregon, finally settling into Seattle around the turn of the millennium.

The songs on Done Gone are both about him and not. "I suppose they are like funhouse mirror reflections, a chance to experience another life for a few minutes at a time." He is now writing and honing more material for a future release.
