Florida raised, Jake Miller, is freshly 21 years old, newly signed to Warner Bros. Records, and is currently touring the United States selling out venues as he goes. Jake’s first live performance was as an opener for Snoop Dogg in 2011. His first self-released album, Spotlight, along with the YouTube videos he’s made of himself performing since high school helped him get the attention of E1 Music and later, Warner Bros. His song/video for “A Million Lives” is from his 2013 album, The Road Less Traveled which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Hip Hop Chart.
Jake Miller names Seattle’s own Macklemore as one of his influences. In October, he released “Collide,” his latest video from The Road Less Traveled.
