At the age of 14, Jake Huffman began his musical journey while traveling up and down the east coast with his rock and roll band, McLovins.
From bars to clubs to theaters to major music festivals, from an early age Jake became a fixture on the rock music scene.
Jake’s band shared the stage with acts such as Blink-182, Jack White, BB King, and The Flaming Lips.
In 2010, Rolling Stone described his band as “having the ability to harness the musical ferocity of Trey Anastasio, Les Claypool and Stewart Copeland before being able to legally drive a car”.
In 2015, McLovins recorded a self-titled LP with Grammy/Tony/Emmy award winning producer, Bill Sherman, who discovered the band on a trip to Hartford, CT.
From there the band toured nationally for several years opening for the likes of the Gin Blossoms, an extended run with Flobots, and playing major festivals like Bunbury in Cincinnati with Jack White, Chainsmokers and Post Malone as well as Summer Camp in Illinois with Tom Petty, the Roots and Lil’ Dickey.
Meanwhile on television, Jake left an imprint as a composer and lyricist for Sesame Street writing dozens of songs for artists like Ed Sheeran and Leon Bridges.
He also did a stint leading the house band on ESPN2’s Sports-Nation for a season. In 2019, Jake felt the urge to evolve his sound further and enlisted the help of producing wizard Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers, Chelsea Cutler, many more).
The result of three days in Los Angeles with Andy marked the debut release of Jake’s solo project.
The sound combines rock n’ roll and Jake‘s acumen as a songwriter with Andy’s golden touch as a next-generation producer.
With years of touring and production experience under his belt and an ability to masterfully handle multiple instruments, Jake has created a sound that pulls deep from his rock roots and reaches far into what can only be described as the sound of the 20’s. On stage.
Jake goes from drums to keys to guitar all while communicating to an audience with deeply personal lyrics and stony vocals. Jake has managed to create a sound with the uniqueness of Arcade Fire, the drive of Tom Petty, and the honesty of Death Cab For Cutie.
