ABOUT JAKE MILLER

When an artist controls his destiny, he builds a lasting legacy.

Critically acclaimed Miami-raised and Los Angeles-based pop singer, producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jake Miller takes matters into his own hands. Not only does he craft all of his beats and pen lyrics, but he also plays guitar and piano. This artisan approach adds a tactile touch and heartfelt honesty to pop augmented by funked-out swagger and soulful style. That sound not only pushed his cumulative plays past the 200-million-mark, but also caused the likes of USA Today to predict, “Miller seems to be on the precipice of the next level of fame. Now, the multi-talented rising star stands poised to reach those heights on his 2019 debut EP BASED ON A TRUE STORY.for RED MUSIC, and he personally built the foundation to do so.

“I feel like I’ve been working towards this for the past two years,” he explains. “Everything in my life changed-from relationships to business. I became happy when I realized I could produce my own material, be independent, and do all of this by myself. For the first time, it really felt like me.”

Since his emergence, Miller has quietly and diligently worked towards such artistic freedom. In 2015, he earned a breakthrough with “First Flight Home,” which moved over 100,000 digital singles. That same year, his Overnight EP yielded the fan favorite title track, which co-starred Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles in its sexy video. On this steady rise, he attracted a diehard following known as “the Millertary” and comprising 1 million Instagram followers, 600K Twitter followers, and 1.1 million Facebook “likes” and counting.  He shared the stage with everyone from Ariana Grande to Shawn Mendes, and he garnered the endorsement of People Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Billboard, Just Jared, and more. Entertainment Weekly proclaimed him among “9 Artists to Hear Now” and Live Nation pegged him on its Ones To Watch. Going independent in 2017, he taught himself how to produce and make beats, leading to a pair of full-length releases2:00AM IN L.A. and Silver Lining–buoyed by hits such as “Can’t Help Myself” and “The Girl That’s Underneath” [feat. Jabbar Hakeem].

In the making of those albums, he found his creative compass.

“When I started out, I would go to sessions and work with other producers,” he says. “However, I took all of 2017 and dedicated myself to learning how to produce. I went to Guitar Center and bought thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment that I didn’t know how to use like a grand piano and a saxophone. Then, I stayed in my apartment and watched thousands of hours of YouTube tutorials. I wanted to download as much info into my brain as possible, so I didn’t need anybody else going forward. That set the stage for me.”

Signed to RED MUSIC in the midst of a stacked headline tour, he dove into making more music. Miller turned the first page of this new chapter with the 2018 single “WAIT FOR YOU.” Merging eighties-esque synth bass and expansive melodies, it clocked over 1 million global streams in under two months.

The 2019 follow-up single “NIKES” illuminates another side of the artist. Backed by rich production, thick bass, and hummable guitar courtesy of Miller, it paints a nostalgic, yet personal picture of a broken relationship with lines like, “I still got your Nikes laying in my closet right there in the corner teasing in me…All they do is bring back memories.”

“I had gotten out of an eight-year relationship, and I realized that I had a pair of shoes sitting in my corner that weren’t mine,” he recalls. “It’s basically reminiscing on what we had. It’s emotional about the past, but it makes you think about the future. My favorite songs can hype you up and cause you to get emotional too.”

His forthcoming six-song EP entitled BASED ON A TRUE STORY. thrives on that dynamic diversity, hinging on an upbeat funky strut throughout and incorporating everything from live choir to horn sections. It showcases the scope of his sound.

In the end, Miller has just begun building his legacy.

“When you think of me as a person and an artist, I hope it inspires you to take life by the horns,” he leaves off. “If you want something, just go after it. No one is going to work as hard for you as you are. I want my story and music to inspire you to keep going towards being the best at whatever you want to be.”

JULIA MICHAELS AND NIALL HORAN RELEASE ACOUSTIC VIDEO FOR “WHAT A TIME”

WATCH IT HERE

GRAMMY® Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling artist JULIA MICHAELS releases the official video for “What A Time” with Niall Horan today. The two performed the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Watch HERE.

JULIA MICHAELS recently surprised fans with the release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART I, a collection of highly anticipated new music featuring collaborations with Selena Gomez on “Anxiety” and Niall Horan on “What A Time.”  Upon arrival, the EP debuted at #1 on the iTunes Pop Albums Chart and #5 Overall iTunes Albums Chart, prompting three worldwide trending hashtags on Twitter.  In addition to critical acclaim, the music also received extensive support from artists like Shawn Mendes, Sam Smith, James Bay, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Ingrid Michaelson, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, and more.  Following the release, MICHAELS joined country superstar Keith Urban on the Australian Leg of his current world tour.

MICHAELS is currently on her first-ever headline tour, “The Inner Monologue Tour,” and is gearing up to release INNER MONOLOGUE PART II. She is also on tour with P!NK for her “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” through May.

In 2015, MICHAELS transitioned from behind-the-scenes as a top songwriter for the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez into a force in her own right. As a solo act, she forged an unbreakable bond with countless fans worldwide and skyrocketed to the forefront of pop. She received two 2018 GRAMMY® Award nominations in top categories such as “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for her debut single “Issues” from the 2017 mini-album Nervous System. “Issues” went triple-platinum, crossed 1 billion global streams, achieved consumption of 10 million, emerged as “the top-selling debut single of 2017, and scored a spot as the only solo female contribution on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017” list.

MICHAELS fired on all cylinders throughout 2018. Featuring on Clean Bandit’s “I Miss You, she notched her first Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart in addition to co-writing and lending her voice to Shawn Mendes’ “Like To Be You,” Lauv’s “There’s No Way, and Noah Kahan’s “Hurt Somebody. She also landed her first #1 at country radio with Keith Urban’s smash “Coming Home. Not to mention, she wrote for everyone from Janelle Monàe and P!nk to Christina Aguilera and Jesse Ware as the year went on. Meanwhile, her solo single “Jump” [feat. Trippie Redd] cracked 100 million streams as she hit the stage at Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and the Today Show Summer Concert Series to perform it. Along the way, she toured with the likes of Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, and Niall Horan. Most importantly though, these experiences prepared her for INNER MONOLOGUE PART I as she developed not only creatively, but personally as well.
