“I hear people say, ‘Your concerts are my happy place,'” Jake said. “It’s an hour and a half where you can just shut the world off and just be surrounded by other people who just want to do the same. I think from the beginning of my career, I just preached how important it is to just be yourself and be a good person and I think my fans are the same way.”
That authenticity has continued to win over old and new followers as he continues releasing new music. On Aug. 12, Jake unveiled an original song titled “Keep Her.” And this time, the single’s accompanying music video starred his girlfriend Brandi Burrows as his adventurous (and essential) plus one.
“To me, from the beginning, every song goes hand in hand with a video,” he said. “Videos are definitely really important to me. The reason that I started making music was because I was so in love with Mac Miller. Not only was he putting out amazing music, but him and his friends independently were running around Pittsburgh making the coolest, most fun music videos. It was just inspiring.”
