At the beginning of 2016, Jake Miller made a conscious decision to flip the script. Known to millions for his clever, charismatic rhymes, the 23-year-old recording artist, performer, model, and actor challenged himself in the studio as he commenced work on what would become his new Overnight EP [Warner Bros. Records].
“If you’re an artist, your music is going to evolve with you,” he explains. “I started off as a kid who wanted to explore rapping, because I love hip-hop. I gradually evolved to spitting the verses and singing the choruses. The more I explored singing, the more I was interested in it. I never really did that before. I wanted to see what it would be like to make music with all singing. I studied with some vocal coaches and worked harder than ever. It’s the Jake Miller you know and love, but I’m growing up.”
Since 2012, the Miami native has continually evolved, surprising fans at every turn. His incredible, impassioned, faithful audience dubbed “the Millertary” encompasses over 970K Instagram followers, 700K Twitter followers, and 600K YouTube subscribers. By 2016, his breakout hit “First Flight Home” exceeded digital sales of 100,000, while “Dazed and Confused” [feat. Travie McCoy] racked up over 11.6 million Spotify streams and counting. Along the way, he’s been featured by the likes of Popstar Magazine, Pop Crush, Teen.com, MTV, Just Jared Jr., and many more, and he’s performed alongside everybody from Pharrell, Mac Miller, Ariana Grande, Flo Rida to Jason Derulo. 2015’s Rumors EP shot to #1 on iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart upon release and saw him crisscross the globe on his biggest headline tour yet. Upon returning to Los Angeles from the road, Jake embraced a different slate of influences, finding inspiration in the swag of Pharrell, N.E.R.D., and “old school” Justin Timberlake.
