Jake Vance – Singer/Songwriter
Emerging from the Alberta music scene in Canada, Indie Rock/Pop recording artist, Jake Vance,
began hitting the ground running in the music realm since 2012 at the age of 16; and since that
time has manifested into a versatile and multifaceted artist with his own signature sound and
stylization that has garnered him critical acclaim and positive reception since his inception.
After honing his craft for the first few years, Jake hit the studio in 2015 and released his debut
EP "White Elephant" while still in high school. It charted on several Canadian college radio
stations, reaching #4 in both Alberta and Ontario. By the time 2016 came around, Jake released
his follow-up EP “Eden”, produced by renowned engineer Russell Broom. His exclusive single
from the EP “The Poet” is currently receiving airplay internationally, and was nominated for a
2016 Canadian Folk Music Award. This set the groundwork and foundation for what was to
come for the rising artist, and had no intention of slowing down.
Wasting no time at all, Jake began highlighting his career in music with exclusivity and
authenticity. In 2016, he completed the Artist Entrepreneur Program at CMI in Toronto,
performed at the TD Green Room at the Juno Awards, and became a finalist in the CWOF
Emerging Artist program.
Driving his momentum forward, Jake performed a showcase at Folk Alliance International,
performed at the Canadian Juno Awards, and was the opening act for Tom Cochrane in Calgary
through the TD Music Series. In 2017, Jake performed at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and was
nominated for two Calgary Music Awards for “Male Performer of the Year” and “Folk/Roots
Recording of the Year”.
Most recently, Jake released his new buzzing single “White Lights” and is currently available on
digital music retailers. As Jake Vance continues to compose, create, manifest and innovate
