By 19, Isaac had begun to make a living as a part-time session musician playing drums and bass on various jazz and rock records for a variety of international artists, including the Grammy-award winning Duffy.

Jake then began working with artists such as Cynthia Erivo, Gabrielle, and boy band Blue. Soon after, Jake began to try his hand at writing songs for himself, eventually landing his first major festival opening ‘The Other Stage’ at world-renowned Glastonbury music festival.

Signing to the iconic Sir Elton John’s Rocket Music, Jake Isaac has since worked with and supported Sting, India Arie, Ella Eyre, Paloma Faith, Lake Street Dive, Joan As Police Woman, Angus and Julia Stone, Tori Kelly and Elton John himself.

Jake Isaac is at the forefront of a British soul renaissance that has grown by stealth. Friends like JP Cooper, Jacob Banks, and Michael Kiwanuka are doing similar things, albeit each in their own way: aiming for lyrical honesty and finding the emotion in the music to complement it.

Modern soul is making a comeback and I’m here for it, mate,” Jake concludes. By his own admission, Isaac finds a lot of things hard to say — as do so many men — so he sings about them instead.

What a privilege it is to have Jake Issac perform at Chapel Allerton Arts Festival. A concert not to be missed!
