I'm Jake, English LA based songwriter and singer - you may know me as the singer/songwriter of Indie Pop band Early Hours. I am a versatile songwriter, specializing in lyrics but priding myself on being able to build a song out of nothing. I am also here for you if you need a song sung in an English accent! I have a songwriting degree from Berklee.
I specialize in top-lining and lyrics with an emphasis on storytelling. However I am experienced in a number of genres and excited at the opportunity of working in a number of different spheres. Am also comfortable producing a demo.
I cut my teeth as the lead singer and songwriter for South African based Indie Pop band Early Hours which I grew to be one of the biggest acts in the country and the first in South African history with over 1 million streams on a song on soundcloud, later achieving much more than that. After feeling I had achieved all I could with that group I decided I wanted to pursue songwriting at a higher level and after being awarded a songwriting scholarship to Berklee College Of Music [John Mayer; Charlie Puth] I moved to the US. I am now based in LA working full-time as a songwriter and artist.

Working with Jake was a great experience! Amazing vocal skills and super catchy melodies.
Jake did a fantastic job, wrote great lyrics to my song, exactly what I've expected (only much better:)), I couldn't be happier. I am sure we'll work together again.
Jake is probably the most talented writer I've ever worked with. Few people I've met can craft lyrics and melodies as powerful and intricate as him, but somehow despite that his biggest strength is his ability to connect with people - everyone is comfortable around Jake because he takes the time to make sure they feel welcome. If you're looking for an incredible song and an even better experience, I highly recommend!
Great vocalist, awesome topliner, incredible lyricist, and phenomenal person. Jake is easy to communicate and collaborate with, and will deliver work of consistent and undeniable quality!
Jake is a fantastic topliner and vocalist. He's very versatile and a real pleasure to work with
