British/South African singer and songwriter JAKE tells stories you can dance to. Stories collected over years on the road spent as lead singer and songwriter of the first band in South African history with over a million streams on SoundCloud. That band, Early Hours, later achieved that feat on multiple platforms including Spotify, gaining over 6 million streams on their Debut, and only EP.
Renowned around South Africa for his energetic performance style, JAKE has opened for Grammy-nominated band The Lumineers, and played sold-out headline shows worldwide, as well as performing at most of South Africa’s premiere music festivals.
Now based in LA working as a songwriter, JAKE recently released his first two singles under his own name, with his solo material placing an emphasis on finding the joy in everything. He has racked up over 50 000 streams already on his debut solo release, and has a string of new material planned for 2020. JAKE is telling stories collected from around the globe, inviting the world to join in.
