Jake Miller Opens Up About Producing On His Own for The First Time (Exclusive)

Jake Miller Opens Up About Producing On His Own for The First Time (Exclusive)

Jake Miller is hard at work getting his upcoming tour ready for the best fans in the world.

Meanwhile, we’re all still obsessing over his latest album, 2AM in LA, which is still blasting in our offices.

JJJ had the opportunity to speak to Jake about producing the entire record on his own and all the challenges that came up.

“It was actually a lot of fun,” he admits. “This was the first time I’ve ever produced any of my music by myself. Usually, I’d have producers making the beats and I just write the words, but this time around, I did all the songwriting and the beat making, with the help from some of my friends.”

Jake adds that “it was kind of like a therapy session to just have that complete creative control and make all these songs from my bedroom and having nobody tell me what to do; to do just whatever my heart wants.”

Kelsea adds, “Then it takes you through the darkness of that, the bounce back from that, into just growing up and finding who I am as a young girl.”

We can’t wait!

Jake Miller Just Put Out An Acoustic Version of '2 AM in LA'!

Jake Miller Just Put Out An Acoustic Version of '2 AM in LA'!

Jake Miller pulled off the ultimate surprise on his fans last night — he dropped an acoustic version of 2 AM in LA!

“Just me and a guitar, that would be cool,” the singer mused to JJJ in our recent interview, opening up about how an acoustic version of his most recent album seems right up his alley.

He adds, “I’ve always been drawn to acoustic songs — it just takes the whole beat out of it and you concentrate on the lyrics and the meaning of the song more.”

Jake says, “I’m a lyric guy. I think the lyrics are way more important when it comes to songs than the beat. The beat is important, but it’s the lyrics that get me. With an acoustic album, not having that beat is what gets the point across. You’re listening to every word and every emotion.”

While the album isn’t on Spotify yet, you can grab it on iTunes right now!
