Tyler Jakes is an American musician, songwriter, and producer. His sound blends elements of rock n’ roll, blues, punk, outlaw country, gypsy folk, and surf music.

When Tyler Jakes’ first album, Lo-Fi Matter, was released in late 2005, Pulse of the Twin Cites drew comparisons as broad as Bob Dylan and BRMC saying that, “Jakes is intent on laying down some truly dirty rock and roll here…Lo-Fi Matter is a great starting point. ” Rift Magazine added, “On Lo-Fi Matter, Jakes displays great range and talent as a song writer.” The first track on Lo-Fi Matter, “Lie Awake”, was used during the opening credits to the short film “Under The N”, with Jakes also performing the film’s score.

Jakes moved from his home of Minneapolis, MN, to San Francisco, CA, in early 2008 and formed Tyler Jakes & The Bootleggers. The band featured Jakes on vocals and guitar, Nick Payne on drums, Corey Fiala on acoustic guitar and bass, Clint Taxdahl on trumpet and guitar, Matthew Whitemyer on guitar and bass, Dominic Henri on bass, and Zach LeWinter on drums and percussion. Shortly thereafter, the Emmy award-winning Discovery Channel program Deadliest Catch featured the song “Gamblers Off The North Pacific Shore”, a song Jakes had written and recorded specifically for the show. In May ‘08, Jakes released his second album, Rocking Hoarse Calypso.

    And this is why musicians should love the internet. Tyler Jakes was played on some other station I was listening to, and it led to me actually going out and buying the entire album. I'd have never of even heard of him if not for And look, ma! No promoter!
