From unincorporated Midwest town to golden Hollywood, Jake'O has paved his way through diverse music terrain. He captivates all age groups with his electric stage presence, timeless appearance, and Nuvo-Retro sound.
Jake’O mesmerized millions of viewers last year with his debut television performance on the series premiere of NBC’s American Song Contest. The 29-year-old received sincere praise from Snoop Dog and Kelly Clarkson for his raw showmanship and vintage-futuristic style. Jake'O has collaborated with NYC music producer, Ali Dee (e.g. Pitch Perfect’s “Cups”, Spider Man: Homecoming, Despicable Me 2) and has worked with giant music robot, Atlantic Records. In 2018, Jake’O performed at Summerfest –The World’s Largest Music Festival– with artists such as The Weeknd, Imagine Dragons, Buddy Guy, Shawn Mendes, and Marshmello.
Jake’O is a Filipino-American singer, songwriter, guitarist, performer, and producer who exudes the “It Factor” aura. When people attend his shows they shockingly refer to him as a modern day Elvis, with musical bloodlines running from Prince to Bruno Mars. His music has a simple-complexity which he believes can “teleport listeners to reside in the past, present, and future within one song”.
