Jake Webb & The Commitments was founded by Detroit-Area singer/songwriter Jake Webb. (Woah! I, for one, did not see that coming.) The band started as a way to play his material in a live setting, but became much more. The Commitments are a culmination of Jake's best friends, and they add an interesting and diverse flare to the music that didn't exist prior. The songs are honest, intimate tales of Jake's experiences, and the band does their best to turn his self-indulgent narcissism into palatable folk-rock. They do a great job, lucky for him.
