2 humans. Guitar and drums and vocals. Grunge infused blues, with a surreal, west coast twist, a whiff of evil, and the occasional eyeliner. It's a good time!

"Tyler Jakes is an astonishingly accomplished musician who revels not so much in virtuoso self-indulgence as in writing tunes which resonate heart and soul with the listener."
--Sonic Abuse

Tyler Jakes is a singer-songwriter, music producer, and multi-instrumentalist based out of Oakland, CA (by way of Minneapolis, MN). His music has appeared on TV shows such as Deadliest Catch and Survivor, as well as in films including Under The N. His sound has been described as “…a combination of Black Francis, Jack White, and Tom Waits” on Pandora.com, and concerning his live show, S.F. Bay Area Rock proclaimed, “He seems to truly appreciate the crowds and puts on a show fit for thousands.”

When Jakes’ eclectic mix of alternative garage-rock was debuted on his first album, Lo-Fi Matter, Pulse of the Twin Cities drew comparisons as broad as Bob Dylan and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club saying that, "Jakes is intent on laying down some truly dirty rock and roll here ". Rift Magazine added, "Jakes displays great range and talent as a songwriter". Vernon Reid (of the Grammy-award winning, Living Colour) described Jakes’ songwriting as being “gritty and witty”.
