After ten years in the business, JAKE ALDRIDGE has just released his ‘best work yet’, Pieces Of Me, featuring long-time friend and vocalist Kelly Jenns.
2015 has been a busy year for the Suffolk-based R&B/hip-hop artist. The 27-year-old has seen his music video for previous single, Give You The World, which was filmed in Spain, go to number one on the VTYO video charts.
He has signed a publishing deal with Leopard Music, a synchronization deal with Go DIY Records and also secured a sponsorship deal with Asian-based RudeBoy Clothing Line. The smooth operator also became the first artist outside of the US to win a feature competition hosted by music blog, Daily Hip Hop Jamz, receiving more votes than anyone else.
Known for his heartfelt delivery over smooth rhythms, Jake’s music career came unexpectedly after losing his father at just 11 years old and eventually turned to his diary as a way to cope with his grief. He started out with a £12 microphone and a pop shield made from a sock.
Judging from his impressive CV, he’s come a very long way! Pieces Of Me is available via iTunes.
