Mont Jake

A very modern triple-threat, Jake started writing, recording and producing all his own music from the confines of his Copenhagen bedroom – “When I was in Copenhagen I was completely isolated. The music scene didn’t inspire me. So I had to move.” Mont Jake arrived in London with only his laptop, some threads and one friend from home in the city, but he appeared with a sound you wouldn’t usually expect of a young artist from Denmark.

His innate ability to absorb diverse music cultures, piecing contrasting vocals together and bringing them into his world sets him apart from his contemporaries. Jake mashes the old with the new, 90s Hiphop / R&B with 70s classic soul, carrying velvet vocal tones and fresh melodic highs.

Mont Jake has teamed up with saxophonist Leland Whitty of BADBADNOTGOOD and rapper Gene Fisher on the infectious ‘Come Closer’, out now via Island Records.
