Jake Stokes is a Wellington based guitarist and singer, predicted by many to become a force to be reckoned with on the Australasian blues-rock scene. Having cut his teeth as a hard-working teenage busker on the streets of Wellington, he became a regular feature at the Capital Blues Club, wowing audiences with his youthful, enthusiastic take on the blues. He has since gone on to write and record his debut album, and has regularly toured nationally as a guitarist and singer for Madsen Promotions.

In his late teenage years, Jake began writing the songs which would eventually form his debut album Midnight –recorded in February 2013, at STL Audio. The resulting album was released in January 2014, to excellent reviews. As Jake has matured as a musician, the songs from Midnight have matured with him, adopting the blues-rock themes and influences that underlie his more recent music, to remain as relevant today as when they were recorded.

He is currently performing throughout New Zealand with his 3-piece band, with two national tours planned for 2016. Jake blends old-school music sensibilities, youthful energy, and jaw-dropping chops to deliver a truly unique live experience to his audience. Combined with his effervescent stage presence, Jake is a highly entertaining performer that appeals to both old and young alike.
