Jake Emlyn

29 Apr

This Is Jake Emlyn

He is my house mate, So if I wanted I could go into all sorts of unnecessary detail. But I wont, all you need to know is this…

I met Jake when I started my studies at the British Academy of New music. It quickly became clear that Jake was a quietly eccentric character with a very hard working and focused attitude towards his music. He is an incredibly understanding human which has been to his detriment at times when working with people who shared his musical aspirations but perhaps not his sensible and honest business mind. But justice prevails for good people and Jake is back with his own style which borrows characteristics from of all of his musical adventures, misdemeanour’s and idols.

To see Jake live, you really start to understand what a breath of fresh air he is for the music industry.

His witty and up to date topical raps, with his flirtatious out bursts and marriage proposals to celebrities, his deadpan humour, mixed with his serious and sensitive ballads and philosophies, really do have you laughing and questioning yourself and Jake with irony throughout the whole set.

He will be playing at the Re-launch of The Secret Showcase Presents… at the Victoria in Dalston on the 15th of May. This will be a one of show while he takes a break from performing to record his EP to be released later this year.
