Jake Scott began his career in 2013 with the release of his first EP, Of Life and Love and Longing. The project debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and quickly caught the attention of industry professionals. Shortly after, the Arkansas-native moved to Los Angeles. He spent several years writing and producing songs for other artists, including Jason Mraz, Aloe Blacc and more.
Following his time in the trenches of the Los Angeles songwriting circles, Jake decided to commit himself to releasing, writing and self-producing a song every month for as long as possible. He began this process in January 2018 with the song “Tuesdays”, which has since earned nearly 30M streams. Other popular releases include: “Like No One Does” and “2014”, both co-written with female pop artist, Katelyn Tarver. He also collaborated on several singles with Nashville artist, Josh Kerr, including “CWJBHN” and “Keep In Touch”. He recently ended his song-per-month release strategy in December 2020 — accumulating 250M+ streams, 3M+ monthly listeners, and selling out his first headline tour in the process.
Jake released his first formal project titled, Goldenboy, in the summer of 2021. Jake said about the project, “The project is the story of realization, accepting the difficult truth and having the courage to let go.” Leading up to the EP, he released the three singles: “Off”, “Meet My Shadow”, and “Anymore”. Throughout Jake’s entire career as an artist, he has remained 100% independent by choice.
Jake collaborated with Russell Dickerson in 2021 for the single “She Likes It”. The collaboration has been a huge success with 20M streams on Spotify alone. In March 2022, Jake performed his own new hit single “Texas Girl” on the Kelly Clarkson show. Additionally, he has an upcoming headline tour across the U.S. starting in May 2022.
