Twenty-four year old Jake Burford was born and raised in Mobile. He started playing guitar when he was about 11, and started writing his own music when he was 17. After playing at house parties and family cookouts, Jake realized how much he loves playing in front of an audience, and started playing open mic nights at T.P. Crockmiers and Bojangles.
Jake covers all types of music genres, but especially enjoys country music. Last summer he opened up for Colt Ford at Soul Kitchen in downtown Mobile. He says that’s been a landmark performance in his music career. He’s now working on writing more original songs and putting his first album together.
