BabyJake is reviving the glamour of the 70s for the modern era. He gained significant attention in 2019 when his single “Cigarettes on Patios” went gold, amassing millions of streams. Known for blending a variety of influences to create an entrancing sound, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s most prominent influence is his own personality. After releasing his debut album in 2021 under SB Projects / Republic Records, he established a unique sound that's unmistakably his own. His evocative flair and raspy voice have been featured in collaborations with artists like 24kGoldn, Dillon Francis, Zhu, and Lizzy McAlpine.

BabyJake’s latest work showcases his range, from an iconic cover of “Beast of Burden” to an original anthem, “We Got to Get Together to Be Free.” His independent summer 2023 album, “Aren’t We Ever Gonna Be More Than Friends?” revealed a new level of authenticity and rock. His acoustic album “Rude, Crude, and Uncouth” (Winter 2023) further demonstrated his unapologetic individuality and cohesive grasp of his sound’s inspirations. BabyJake’s music invites listeners to sit back and enjoy the show.
Fan reviews:

Courteous man whose here to have a good time. So much fun, Jake and his band were so enthusiastic for such a small venue and made it personal. Got to talk with him after the show and he took the time to ask a few questions and doing so while making it funny and not awkward. Humble man and shared so much truth in his advice and meaning to his music and I hope I can run into him again.

Incredible showmanship! BabyJake is a star no matter what genre he chooses! Such a vibrant performer with a one of a kind, unique voice and talent. 10/10 show!

One of the best live performances ever. Both of the openers and BabyJake were amazing. The vocals, the instruments, and the stage presence were some of the best I have ever experienced, and I am a frequent concert attender.

Great show, great energy. I've been following BabyJake for a few years. I don't follow many bands but BabyJake is one that I will certainly follow. I love seeing his continued success and dedication, not only to his profession but to his fans. Love him and the energy he creates.
BabyJake shared the stage with Hobo Johnson and The Lovemakers and Remo Drive at Emo's Austin. They continue across the United States with the last stop at the Kinda Spoopy Music Festival 2024 in Adams, Tennessee on October 3, 2024.
