Bio


While Jake Wachtel’s beginnings are somewhat typical—California-raised, piano lessons as a kid, high school punk rock band, etc.—the place he finds himself currently is anything but. Having now spent the better part of 7 years travelling around the developing world, Wachtel’s down time on the road is split between meditation and music, and in 2010 he made the decision to learn to play as many different instruments as possible. Those efforts are filtered into Walktell, a world music project that symbolizes the journey towards a deeper understanding of himself and his surroundings.

From his current bases of Pai, Thailand and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Walktell is preparing to release a second full-length album, Far In, which features no less than 44 different instruments collected from across the Eastern Hemisphere, all performed by Wachtel himself.
