The song entitled “Wire & Thorns” reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release. This led to Jake being invited to perform at 2017’s Country 2 Country festival in London. Having worked with several top industry writers and producers in 2017 including the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper (Sting, Gary Numan), Jake is back with a brand new EP titled “Englishman” due for release in March 2018 as Jake once again performs live at Country 2 Country 2018.
