Jake Sherman Gets Sexy

Jake Sherman

In an era where naked integrity is at a premium, Jake Sherman Gets
Sexy reminds us that, no matter who you are, the sexiest thing you can
do is to be yourself. Perhaps Jake doesn't need to "get sexy," as he
has been sexy all along, as those of you who have been paying
attention to his performance schedule would know. Following the
release of 2017's Jake Sherman Returns, Jake toured and/or recorded
with Bilal, Meshell Ndegeocello, Emily King, Blood Orange, Benny Sings, Doyle
Bramhall II, Andrew Bird, Gabriel Garzon Montano, Nick Hakim, and gospel heavyweight Doobie Powell, with whom he co-wrote and -produced "Close to You,” on Powell's latest release. Wherever he was in the world, odds are he was in front of an
organ, and hard
at work on what would become this, his third album.

Here we are again, voyeurs into Jake's private moments. While earnest
piano-driven numbers like "Isabelle" and "Maureen” are in the vein of
his earlier releases, the meat of Gets Sexy is more reminiscent of 80’s
RnB than any of the artist's prior efforts. Throbbing slow jams like
album anchors "Midnight Escapade" and "Me" pull as much from Dick
Griffey's handbook as from the producer palette of early Babyface,
while "Help Somebody" and "Dig Deeper" rely more on the cunning of their lyricist
to bring the listener to the precipice of pleasure. The common thread here is the steady, measured motion of his ocean, the earnest course of his boat, and a dedication to leaving all parties satisfied.

Profile

D36b5f60 ac1c 4348 b806 41b34c0f395c
New York
Born in Boston, Jake Sherman learned classical piano by listening to his father play Bach every morning. If not for an intervention - stumbling upon the catalog of Weird Al Yankovic at 11 years old - he would have followed in his father’s path or perhaps become a jazz purist. But Weird Al changed everything. Jake started a parody band and sang his newly-written lyrics to classics like “All Star” by Smashmouth and “Men in Black” by Will Smith, along with composing new family classics such as “Amy, You’re Turning 49” and “Charles, Charles Sherman.”

Fast forward some years beyond his time studying at Berklee College of Music and it’s clear Jake has found a way to combine his appreciation of great songwriting with his piano/organ-playing prowess. He has become a go-to musician on recordings, and tours for artists including Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, Andrew Bird and Nick Hakim. Chance the Rapper’s Grammy-winning song “No Problem” includes some of Jake’s work.

More recently, Jake has re-tapped his well of musicality and songmaking to create his upcoming album, Jake Sherman Gets Sexy. Due out in March 2020, the album is a journey through modern dating and relationships, with a point of view that is somehow both poignant and Weird Al-esque.
