Jake Evans is a singer and songwriter based in Macclesfield, NW England.
He first gained attention through his first band, Rambo & Leroy, which lead to him joining Bad Lieutenant as a songwriter, co-front-man and guitarist. Bad Lieutenant featured Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris of New Order/Joy Division fame along with Blur’s Alex James.
2012 saw Jake emerge as a solo artist where he impressed audiences both new and familiar and was personally invited to open for the likes of Paul Weller among others.
His rapidly growing profile saw him most recently open up for Johnny Marr and New Order at their prestigious, sold out Jodrell Bank Live show on July 7th 2013. Jake’s most recent live appearance was at the award winning Festival No.6 on September 15th 2013.
Jake has recently completed his own debut album Day One, which firmly establishes him as a unique talent in his own right, with no shortage of effortless guitar and vocal melody, heartfelt lyrics and euphoric sonic backdrops. This is Post-Rock Indie at its best.
