Born and raised in South London, Jake Isaac began playing drums age 3 and by 19 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.
Marketing Manager by day, songwriter and session musician by night, Jake began working with artists such as Cynthia Erivo, Gabrielle, and boy band Blue. Soon after, he began to try his hand at writing songs for himself, eventually landing his first major festival opening The Other Stage at Glastonbury.
Signing to Sir Elton John’s Rocket Music, Jake Isaac has since worked with and supported Ella Eyre, Paloma Faith, Angus and Julia Stone, and Elton John himself. Jake’s distinctive style of singer-songwriter soul has earned him fans worldwide, selling out headline shows in the UK, Germany, USA, Netherlands and across Europe, and appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in the US in 2020.
2021 sees the release of Jake’s new album ‘Honesty’ featuring India Arie, Samm Henshaw, Yuna and Mumu Fresh. 'Honesty' is a vulnerable exploration into love and relationships as a black man in the 21st century.

Warming up the stage for Jake Isaac will be rising star Lucy McWilliams. The 20 year-old singer-songwriter from Dublin is tipped for big things this year with the press describing her as having ‘a voice as rich as velvet and killer musical instincts’.
