At just 19 years old, Fort Lauderdale’s own Jake Miller is a singer, rapper, musician and songwriter. Since uploading a few homemade videos on YouTube last year, he has enjoyed a meteoric rise within the music industry. Attracting the attention of music industry insiders, Jake Miller is no longer an “unknown” as they say within the business
Jake’s first live performance was opening for the legendary Snoop Dogg. Shortly after that, Jake opened for Billboard Magazine cover phenomenon, Mac Miller.
Jake was one of the acts for the THINK PINK ROCKS concert, sharing the stage with Flo Rida, Sean Kingston, Asher Roth, Melanie Fiona, Shontelle, Iyaz, Mann, among others. Benefiting breast cancer awareness, this concert was sponsored by Steve Rifkind and SRC Records.
Jake has performed with Schwayze, Cisco Adler, and the Wonder Broz (Nick Cannon’s protégé group). He recently performed at the Y-100 Jingle Ball Village along side Cody Simpson, We the Kings and more.
Jake will be performing New Year’s Eve weekend at the Miami Beach Orange Drive music festival with Cee Lo Green, Ne-Yo, Gym Class Heros, Cobra Starship, and Jason Derulo.
Jake’s song, ON THE MOVE, a remix of Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now, by McFadden and Whitehead was recently picked up by V-103 (CBS radio) in Atlanta and is quickly picking up spins in several markets.
Jake was brought to New York for a showcase by Universal Republic Records and was offered a development deal. Other private labels have also offered deals, but Jake is maintaining his independence until the just the “right” deal comes along.
The studio has become a “home away from home” for Jake. He is an integral part of the production of every song. Jake writes his own lyrics and works closely with producers to ensure that the final product contains his own unique character and style. He fills a void in current music with his clean, up-beat, positive raps and indelible hooks.
Jake won the national Battle of the Bands contest sponsored by Samsung/T-Mobil. The grand prize included $35,000 toward his music, a music video with YouTube sensation Keenan Cahill, and various other projects.
Jake has been interviewed by multiple television shows and news programs. WPOW (Power 96) in Miami features Jake on their website as an “up and coming” artist. He has written a promotional jingle for the NBC 6 morning news show, and a theme song for the Miami Heat. Jake has created that “buzz” any artist needs to propel them to the next level.
In addition to writing their promotional jingle, Jake will be honored in January by STOP Burgers, a gourmet burger shop in Weston that features celebrity burgers. Jake will be presented with his own celebrity burger design and naming rights as a sensational superstar rapper.
“Jake Miller is an exceptionally talented young man,” stated Jamie McDonnell, philanthropist, serial entrepreneur, and owner of STOP Burgers. “A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Jake Miller Burger will benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation.”
