I have never done something different than music!! I'm sure that every little piece of music can sound better just with some help from other ears. We get caught up easily in our 'bubble' as I call it - so asking a friend or trying such a service like soundbetter could help our sound to become what we imagine!
Chris Jake is an Austrian singer, songwriter and producer. Even in his youth he played on the biggest stages in the country and landed in the charts with his band The Hitchhikers. In recent years Chris Jake has turned to electronic music and caused a stir with remixes for Steve Aoki. In 2020 he decides to go his own way and release his own tracks. His first single, FIND YOU, defines what he stands for as a solo artist: fat beats, sunshiny vibes and the courage to show great emotions. With the Razorlight cover ‘AMERICA’ feat. Marie Ann he can conquer the biggest Spotify playlists for himself. Now he's releasing his new single LOVERS very soon to show the world that the future of electro-pop lives in the middle of good old Austria!
