Jake Scott began his career in 2013 with the release of his first EP, Of Life and Love and Longing. Shortly after, the Arkansas native signed a publishing contract with Grammy-award-winning songwriter David Hodges and moved to Los Angeles. He spent several years writing and producing songs for other artists, including Jason Mraz, Aloe Blacc, and more.
Following his time in the trenches of the Los Angeles songwriting circles, Jake committed himself to releasing, writing, and self-producing a song every month. He began this process in January 2018 with the song Tuesdays, which has since earned 60M streams. Other hits from this period include “Favorite T-Shirt” and “Like No One Does”, with 80M and 70M streams respectively. After 3 years, he ended his song-per-month release strategy in December 2020.
Over the years, Jake has accumulated 500M+ streams, 4.5M+ monthly listeners, and recently sold out his first major North American headline tour – all while remaining independent.
Today Jake is beginning to roll out his debut album with Elektra Records. The latest single “She’s Not You” was released on July 22, 2022.
Jake lives in Los Angeles with his wife Rachel and their 3-month old daughter, Ruby.
