Since having his music aired on Playboy TV and on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape, Jake Aldridge was invited to perform for Billie Laurie, an Award winning Producer who has worked with the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, The Bee Gees & Tina Turner. The Gig was televised on Sky TV and was set up by Ding Walls Music, the company responsible for discovering Ellie Goulding.

Watch the music video for Jake’s new single ‘Fireman’ here:

When Jake was 11, his father passed away in a tragic accident, forcing him to later use music as a form of therapy. Unlike many musicians, music wasn’t in Jake’s blood but as he began to write, he discovered he was a confident lyricist and started to master rapping. Music became a positive way of expressing his emotions as well as offering others a form of comfort.

‘Fireman’ features the 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 Jake Aldridge. 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.
