JAKE BANFIELD RELEASES EMOTIONAL TRACK
A native of Oklahoma, spending time in Eufaula, Mannford, and Tulsa, Jake Banfield started his musical career at the age of 19 after a knee injury sidelined him while playing College Basketball. Banfield ended up buying a guitar from a local pawn shop and began teaching himself how to play and write music along with it.
Growing up singing in church, Jake was no stranger to song. Raised on 80’s Hair Bands, 90’s & 2000’s Hip-Hop and R&B, Old School Rap, and all decades of Country music, his inspiration from a variety of genres influenced him to begin writing music and performing live on social media, in the quiet of his dorm room while recovering from his injury. Eventually, a fan base of over 800,000+ thousand followers amassed on TikTok and Instagram, and doors started to open for the point guard from a one-stoplight Oklahoma lake town.
After one of his original songs, caught traction on TikTok, Banfield found himself a couple weeks later signing a management deal with Electric Feel Entertainment. (who represent artists, songwriters, and producers such as Post Malone, 24KGoldn, Iann Diorr, Louis Bell, etc.)
After signing his management deal, Banfield found himself writing songs for some of the top girl Pop Artists in the world.. Receiving his first songwriting cuts from Madison Beer, Little Mix, and Anne Marie.
Shortly after, Banfield began working on his own original music again and went out to Nashville to songwrite & record and work on his unique sound with some of the top songwriters & producers in Nashville.
Jake’s musical influences include Sam Hunt, Kane Brown, Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Bruno Mars, Russ and Justin Bieber. Best described as pop country, with a hint of rock, alternative, and a touch hip-hop, Jake’s versatility is what draws his diverse fan base from countries around the world.
Banfield is currently working on releasing his first full project in 2022.
Jake’s music can be found on all platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok & Twitter.
His song "Hold Me" hit 1 million streams on Spotify shortly after its release last spring and to date has nearly 3 million streams on all combined platforms
