"As seen on BBC Spotlight Jak 'The budget Ed Sheeran' is an up and coming Devon based artist, he has been performing live and recording since 2016 where he started playing at his local pub, he had already had ambitions to become a singer-songwriter and would practice alone, but 2016, after an accident became the year he had the opportunity. He lists his two major accomplishments as Opening up for Lee Nelson and performing in aid of raising awareness of mental health, to which he performed his song ‘Never Truly Alone’ which was released as part of raising money for Mental Health Charities. He did recently perform at Dartmoor Zoo as well as being selected to the second round of The Voice with his original song ‘Promise’. Not to mention being asked to return to London to preform at the 02 academy 2.

His musical influences exist around the likes of The Animals, The Neighbourhood. John Mayer and Ed Sheehan him self. He describes the sound and the style from these musicians and bands to complement each other not just lyrically but musically, the way they are written tells an emotional story and something he hopes to one day portray within his music. He defines their music to the type of music that stays with you for life, the type of music that keeps you inspired.
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 and alternative. There really isn't one genre his music fits, he describes his sound to depend on how the lyrics sound.
Right now Jak is writing and recording his third EP after the successful independent release of ‘Believe in me again’ and ‘Live Sessions’, he has released single song releases on the side, such as ‘Country Moma’, which came accompanied with an official music video as well as acoustic versions of popular originals ’Someone Like Her’ and many more.
