Jake Miller: Jake Miller (born November 28, 1992), is an 18 year old American rapper, songwriter, guitarist, drummer and honors student with a passion for music. Born in Washington, D.C., Jake moved to Florida when he was two years old. At a very early age, Jake was captivated by all types of music, especially teen pop/soul recording artist N-Sync, but as a teenager found his true passion with hip hop. When Jakes 10th grade English teacher assigned a creative writing project, the rest of his classmates turned in short stories and poems. Jake turned in a CD collection of songs that had written. That was his first experience as a songwriter. From that point, Jake dreamed of sharing his music with the world with hopes of making a positive impact. Jakes first official single, titled Dreamin samples the late Great Michael Jacksons classic single, Never Can Say Goodbye. In this song, Jake raps about the dreams teenagers all over the world share, the desire to be rich, successful and famous. Jake recently opened for the legendary Snoop Dogg and underground rapper Mac Miller. In May, 2011, Jake won the nationwide Battle of the Bands contest sponsored by Samsung/T-Mobil Sidekick 4G. The grand prize includes $35,000, a music video with YouTube phenomenon Keenan Cahill, and various other projects to promote Jakes music. The month of May proved to be very productive as Jake penned an anthem for the Miami Heat, titled Miami Heat, The Top Spot, which has been featured on local radio and television stations. He has created a serious buzz over the last several months. He has already met with several record labels, programmers at radio stations, been interviewed by different local television stations, and was featured on the popular Deco Drive TV show and Miami Music Television. Radio station Power 96 features Jakes music on their website as an up and coming artist to watch. He writes his own lyrics and works closely with the producers of his track. Jakes musical influences, in no particular order, include: Jay Z; Eminem; Lil Wayne; Chris Brown; Drake; Asher Roth; Wiz Khalifa; B.O.B; and Mac Miller.
