Already boasting 4 independently released EPs, streaming numbers that total over 30 million, support slots with Ella Eyre, Paloma Faith and his own string of sold out London dates, Jake Isaac promises to be an incredibly exciting talent coming via the Virgin EMI stable for 2017.
Hailing from South London with Caribbean roots, Jake has already made impressive strides within the international markets selling out headline shows in the US, Belgium, UK, the Netherlands and Germany. All without a record label.
His distinctive style of feisty, powerful soul pop with anthemic, big hooks has earned him widespread plaudits as a singer and also as a gifted multi-instrumentalist; having played all the instruments across his previous material. Now signed to the same management as Elton John and Ed Sheeran, Jake is ready to release the first cut from his debut album in the shape of first single ‘Long Road’.
Speaking on first single ‘Long Road’, Jake explores the narrative behind the track and how it reflects on his own journey, musically and personally: “It’s been quite a journey in terms of dealing with different pressures from people who want you to be something that you’re not, but I make my own journey. It’s partly written out of frustration.”
With support coming from the likes of Burberry, Mahogany sessions, Wonderland, Clash and BBC Introducing, Jake’s instantly recognisable vocal is a refreshing reminder of how distinctive a UK modern soul artist can sound. A fiercely personal and passionate body of work, his debut album promises to be one of fantastic depth, honest and heartfelt and full of fire.
