About Jake Aldridge

ake Aldridge, was eleven when his father died suddenly. Being so young, he never quite knew how to deal with his bereavement. He then entered into what he describes as his “Rebellious Period” and because of this his studies suffered. He was an extremely active child and played golf to a good standard. At the age of seventeen he was offered a place at Merrist Wood Golfing College in Surrey and was more than happy to accept. Being away from home for the first time in his life, he found it comforting to express his emotions on paper. Over time these began to read more like poems, as he would start to rhyme his sentences. As Jakes passion for writing grew, his passion for golf suffered, “Whilst playing an important tournament, I found myself typing lyrics into my phone” he says, “ At that moment I knew I was going to have to re-evaluate my future.”

Up until this point he had kept his newfound passion to himself. Wanting a second opinion he sought advice from his childhood friend, Tom Moran. “I wasn’t even aware that Jake was into writing,” he says, “but when he read me his lyrics, I was blown away by his creative use of similes and metaphors and urged him to continue”.

Jake now had the reassurance he needed to continue writing but had no idea how he would share it with others. He was certainly no singer, but had always been a huge fan of Hip Hop and RnB from a very young age and it was to be this genre that he would pursue.

Wanting to help Jake discover his potential, Tom invested in some basic studio equipment and they began to make music together from the loft in Jake’s Mum’s House. Soon after, they had a chance meeting with a local music producer, Wesley Hurr, who offered to help Jake produce his music and even to teach him how to do it himself. “Jakes passion to succeed and his eagerness to learn made him a pleasure to teach.” says Wesley. They worked together for over two years and during this time Jake’s knowledge of music production grew to a stage where he felt comfortable producing music by himself.
