Jake Walters – Artist Interview
What made you decide to jump into the music industry or music business?
Jake Walters (JW:) I’ve always felt drawn to music, and have since learned that it is the best way to use my voice for good. Music is healing to both the listener, and the creator. I feel so blessed to be able to create it.
What do you think makes you stand out from all the other aspiring and upcoming artists in your genre of music?
JW: I really feel like I have a palpable innocence, positivity, and love that penetrates my music, and makes people feel good, which is ultimately my deepest wish. I use pop music, the most accessible genre, to paint a sonic picture of the human experience, and my message is always to spread love.
If you could collaborate with ANY artist/band… Who would you choose and why?:
JW: Probably Lady Gaga, because she stands so strongly for the power of kindness.
What do you think is your biggest Advantage and your biggest Disadvantage about being an Indie artist?:
JW: My biggest advantage is that I can be free to create art that feels good, and that I think will truly make a difference. A disadvantage is that it can sometimes feel overwhelming, as I don’t have a team with me to help me with things like promotion.
Do you prefer the Independent route or would you rather sign to a major record label, and why?
JW: If I could somehow have both, I think that would be ideal. I want my art to be free and expressive, but also be able to have someone who believes in it and invests in it.
Out of all the songs you’ve released, what do you think is your Best song and why?
JW: I think my song “The Golden Hour,” speaks the loudest in terms of what my message is: that is, to love yourself, and to love others, no matter the pain you have gone through. That pain does not define you.
Between creating in the studio OR performing live on stage, which is your most enjoyable one and why?
JW: There’s nothing like a live performance. The energy is electric, and anything could happen! 🙂
What would you consider your most successful or proudest moment in your music career, so far?
JW: I am not sure if this counts, but I sang a song dedicated to my family, “Evelyn,” at my Uncle’s funeral service. I struggle sometimes to tell people how I feel with words, and my Uncle and I had a strange relationship. Singing that song for him, and for all of my family there, was transformative and healing, and I’ll never forget it.
What inspires you the Most about the music industry these days?
JW: There is a big push for social awareness, which is something that I think is so important. People are hurting right now, and it’s important to remind each other, and ourselves, that we are not alone.
If you wasn’t in the music business or industry, what do you think you would be doing with your life instead?
JW: I truly can’t imagine doing anything else, but I do LOVE to cook, so maybe I could be a chef! 🙂 I also am interested in psychology, so that would be a pretty interesting career path to explore!
