Two things drew me to Jake when I was given his information. One he is from my home state of Missouri, the second thing and really the more important thing is this guy has talent. Jake is 16 from Ozark Missouri, has performed four times on national television via his time on America’s Got Talent. Jake made it to the quarter finalist stage in 2012 before being eliminated. Jake released Diamond a four song EP in December of 2012, he is set to release American Dream very soon.
Despite still a teenager, Jake’s lyrics have depth. “Matter of Time” a single that Jake wrote is a song about a breakup. “When I looked into your eyes, and I believed all your lies, I can’t say I was surprised, You were only a matter of time. I loved the opening piano notes to the song “James Dean” The song is just a good pop/rock song with a good beat a song. I would put on a road trip CD. The electronic beat of “Satellites” and “Neon Light Anthem” both are songs that will be on the new EP, that should do well in the dance clubs.
Overall of the 6-7 songs I heard from Jake I enjoyed each one. He is one artist it will be interesting to watch his career. You can learn more about Jake by visiting his website http://www.jakewesleyrogers.com.
