Upcoming Release: Fireman – Jake Aldridge (ft. Lisa Ambrose)

Having gone to number one on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, getting his track played on Playboy TV daily and receiving airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape, JAKE ALDRIDGE returns with ‘Fireman’. Fusing R&B, pop and hip-hop, Aldridge tells the captivating story of losing the person you love, a theme he is all too familiar with after losing his own father at the age of 11.

‘Fireman’ features singer-songwriter Lisa Ambrose, who recently won Battle Of The Bandstands, hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Rob The Bank. This led to Ambrose supporting Mark Ronson and now collaborating with Norwich-based hip-hopper.

Inspired by the likes of Tupac Shakur and Dr Dre, Jake believes his music is entirely honest and offers his fans an insight to his life and emotions. The song has been produced by Ninety II, an up and coming producer from Bristol.

‘Fireman’ is set for release via iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and many more on 7th April 2017.
