Jake Simon | “If It Was Still Summer”
Jake Simon spent his childhood in the countryside with his three brothers. After graduating high school, he enrolled at the University of Northern Iowa and formed a band. For two years, he managed to balance his studies and his music, playing three shows a week while also being a full-time student. However, it soon became apparent that pursuing higher education wasn’t the right path for him. Instead, he chose to focus entirely on his music career. This decision proved to be a wise one, as it led to the band receiving national radio play and opening for prominent musicians in front of large crowds. In addition, Jake was eventually able to headline his own national shows. He has just recently released a new single called “If It Was Still Summer.” His voice is made for this genre of music. His tone and delivery are both absolutely stunning. Definitely a standout this week. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
