Jake Miller, born November 28, 1992, is an American rapper, singer, musician and songwriter from Weston, Florida. He is currently attending the University of Miami. In high school the multi-talented musician who taught himself to play the drums and guitar at a young age, put out a few homemade music videos on YouTube which immediately created a buzz and attracted the attention of music business insiders who began to guide Jake on his journey.
Jake's very first live performance was in March 2011 when he opened for legendary rapper Snoop Dogg in Pompano Beach, Florida and shortly after he opened for rapper Mac Miller in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In May 2011, Jake won the Samsung & T-Mobile national "Kick it with the Band" competition designed to highlight some of the best music talent on the verge of stardom across the country. As the grand prize winner, Jake was awarded $35,000.00 for use towards his music career and a music video with YouTube sensation Keenan Cahill. In November 2011, Jake performed alongside Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Asher Roth at the "Think Pink Rocks" concert in West Palm Beach, FL which is sponsored by Steve Rifkind and SRC Records. In December 2011, Jake took the stage at the annual Y-100 Jingle Ball concert where Cody Simpson and We the Kings also performed. On December 31, 2011, he rang in the New Year at the Orange Drive Miami Beach Music Festival in which Jason Derulo, Cee Lo Green, Ne-Yo, Gym Class Heroes and Cobra Starship also performed. On March 11, 2012 Jake performed on both the Planet Pit Stage and Power 96 Stage at the famed Calle Ocho Festival in Miami, FL in front of an estimated crowd of 200,000+. He also had a show sponsored by Miami's pop radio station Y-100 where he performed with Sammy Adams, Austin Mahone, J Rand and others. A personal highlight for Jake (as he is an avid Miami Heat fan) was when he performed at the AAA arena during the NBA championship finals.
MTV Buzzworthy says "Jake Miller is about to blow up! Jake just released a brand-new video and we're mildly obsessed, to say the least. Jake's rap flow is serious, and we haven't even discussed his vocals yet! Unsurprisingly, Jake's also got a killer set of pipes." The Miami Herald recently featured Jake in a full page article titled Young Rapper in the Fast Lane, and goes on to say "It's Miller time! Get used to hearing the name Jake Miller. The Weston rapper is on his way. At just 19, the singer-songwriter is a Web sensation." J-14 Magazine featured Jake in their weekly Hot Music Alert section while YoungHollywood.com says "South Floridian Teen Jake Miller (is) breaking through to the Music Mainstream." WFOR-TV (CBS Miami) says "Jake Miller is a star on the rise whose catchy rap tunes are exploding all over the internet." On March 6, 2012, MTV.com did the exclusive music video premiere of Jake's single "I'm Alright." Jake went on a Florida radio tour in March, 2012 to promote his single, "What I Wouldn't Give," and at one point, it was the only record near the top 50 on the Top 40 charts by a completely independent artist.
Jake recently released his first EP, "Spotlight" on iTunes. Jake is a social media wiz and stays extremely connected to his growing fan base. He currently has over 150,000 followers on Facebook and over 200,000 Twitter followers.
Action Item is a up & coming Pop band out of New Jersey. These five boys have been making a name for themselves all over the country with their refreshing sound, charm and charisma. You may have seen them open for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez or on their two national tours supporting Hollywood Record's Allstar Weekend. They have also supported acts like Boys Like Girls, NeverShoutNever & The Veronicas along with festivals like Bamboozle and Warped Tour. The band released their 7 Song EP entitled "The Stronger The Love" August 2010. It debuted at #34 on Billboard's Heatseakers Chart & by December 2010 has sold over 8,000 copies. In November, the band's lead single, "Somewhere Out There" landed regular rotation on Radio Disney and is currently in the Top 15 on their Countdown. 2011 will without-a-doubt a breakout year for Action Item.
Easier experienced than described, Air Dubai is a bustling seven-piece hailing from the burgeoning music scene of Denver, CO. With disparate musical backgrounds and indiscriminate influences, the boys of Air Dubai have truly created something new: pure, melodic cacophony. When vocalists Julian Thomas and Jon Shockness conceived the product of their musical aspirations in the summer of 2008, the short-lived duo underwent a rejuvenation in the spring of 2009 with instrumentalists Nick Spreigl, Lawrence Grivich, Michael Ray, Taylor Tait and Wesley Watkins rounding out the band's current line-up. The band as it exists will go on to collect several titles (including Westword Magazine's Best Hip-Hop Band, and KTCL 93.3's Hometown for the Holidays competition) and universal praise for their eclectic brand of spicy alternative music: always well done, but never over-sauced.
Wonder Age, their debut long player released October 5th, 2010, is the embodiment of two years of anticipation built solely upon Air Dubai's critically acclaimed live performance. An Air Dubai show is a truly unique experience – an open invitation into the passion and soul behind Air Dubai, but also simply a testament to having a good time. Both national and international publications will say that Air Dubai stands confident in delivering both. While their impressive roster of accomplishments would suggest that Air Dubai might be seasoned and frail, and reaching the bottom of their slope, the truth however is quite the opposite. This young band has the world ahead of them – working efficiently and successfully to catch up to it. Though Air Dubai is certain to document their experiences, life lessons, and discouragements – through their infectiously tasteful music – all along the way.
