With his debut EP The Valley, LA native Jake Davis has shown what it takes to find success. Drive and ambition are essential for the music industry and they are two things that Jake has in spades. The Valley showcases a wide range of styles and genres often within the same song. ‘Half Past 9’ combines heavy synths with a top notch bass line to create a slice of gold standard electropop. ‘Saying It Right’ is a sure fire R&B summer anthem and his latest single ‘So Le Me Go’ throws a slick alternative rock riff into the mix, taking a leaf straight out of Lenny Kravitz’s book to really shake things up. His EP boasts a high standard of production, most of which is the result of Jake himself working from his home studio. There are plenty of people out there who can put out finely polished pop hits, and likewise there are many people who are gifted with vast musical talent and the urge to experiment. Rarely do the two schools of thought meet together in such a perfect match.
The Valley is out now for fans of Chvrches, Oh Wonder and M83
