My name is Jak,
I have been preforming live for 3 years, I have been writing, preforming and recording for the same duration, I have preformed around Exeter, at other small festivals. I have preformed in support of mental health charity’s as well as traveling around London preforming in small venues. If I am successful in this application, I want to use the opportunity to promote a feel good tour, touring round city’s such as London, Bristol and Exeter as well as around Devon sharing the songs I’ve written.
Here is a statement from someone who has followed my work from the beginning
Jak is an upcoming Devon based artist, he has preformed venues in London, pubs small clubs and festivals. He has recently preformed at Dartmoor Zoo as well as going through to the second round of the voice. As well as this he has been asked to return to London to preform at the 02 academy 2. Not to mention he has recently preformed live on Exmouth Air Radio to thousands of listeners and gathered a great support.
Recently he was one of the opening acts for a Lee Nelson show in Exeter and gathered an amazing response from the audience.
He takes inspiration from emotions as well as story’s and adventures he has been on, his music influences come from the likes of John Mayer, Shawn Mendes as well as the likes of Ed Sheeran. His genre isn’t defined by just one, his music takes you on a musical roller-coaster from the likes of Indie, country, acoustic, pop,rock there really isn’t a genre his music fits, however this makes it all the more exciting as you aren’t expecting the wonder he preforms.
He combines beautifully written lyrics with an alternative yet exhilarating acoustic guitar backing. His songs have won small competitions as well as being downloaded online.
