Unsigned artist pledges thanks to friend through latest collaboration
“Jake Aldridge is one of those artists that you need to listen to. Talented, but humble, this man needs to be signed to a major label.”
DJ Sterling, Funky SX Radio
Young musical artist, 28 year old Jake Aldridge, has just announced the release of his first-time collaboration with fellow UK artist and singer/songwriter, Ellie Jamison, as a way of thanks to a loyal friend for many years of support.
Ellie has been performing since the age of 9 and has worked closely with Amy Wadge, who co-wrote the Grammy winning song, Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud.
When I’m Feeling Down has further built-in quality as it features production by California-based Johann Elliott, who has worked with Jake on previous tracks.
Jake commented: “A great Kanye West Lyric said: People never get the flowers while they can still them. That is what I wanted to do with this song, to thank my best friend for always being there for me and I hope it inspires others to be thankful for their true friends as well.”
Aldridge, who is from Suffolk in the UK, has been busy building his credentials. His music video for a previous single, Give You The World, which was filmed in Spain, went to number one on the VTYO video charts.
He has signed a publishing deal with Leopard Music, a synchronisation deal with Go DIY Records and also secured a sponsorship deal with Asia-based RudeBoy clothing line.
Jake’s music career came about rather unexpectedly after losing his father when at just 11 years old; he eventually turned to his diary as a way to cope with his grief. He started out with a £12 Microphone and a pop shield made from a sock.
Today, Jake Aldridge is a professional singer in his own right, racking up over 100,000 plays online and working with some top names in the industry to write and produce music.
