who's jake?

Breaking down the walls of a cubicle, Jake Bernard shed his 9-5 to return to his positive, feel-good roots. Reflecting his inner-optimist, Jake's beach-pop sound meshes the more colorful sides of Jason Mraz and John Mayer, and he's appeared at the Hotel Cafe, The Peppermint Club, BMI's Acoustic Lounge (Genghis Cohen), The Levitt Pavilion (with American Idol's Nick Fradiani), and The Bitter End. The Huffington Post recognizes his beach-pop sound as "intoxicating," and his love letter and tribute to Philadelphia, "City of Love," was recognized by Mayor Kenney and the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Connecticut native recently shared "words2say," depicting an awkward romantic's inability to hold a conversation. In 2019, he debuted "Barely Strangers," a colorful twist on losing touch with someone who was once a constant presence.

Now based in Los Angeles, Jake has played a slew of popular venues across the area, toured up the coast, and released music videos on the beach and in the mountains. He's spreading his roots amongst fans and friends on the West Coast, aiming to spend as much time as he can by the beach with all of them and his guitar, "Tay."
