Jake Scott has released his highly anticipated debut album, Lavender.
Lavender is a sincere and beautiful album, and listeners can easily relate the lyrics to their own lives and experiences.
For Jake, the inspiration for Lavender came from his wife and their growing family, he wrote and recorded much of the record at his studio with a group of trusted collaborators, handling most of the production himself.
“I wanted Lavender to feel like nostalgia. Like a beginning and an end. Like magic,” Jake explains. “I’ve been building toward it for years – one song at a time, one step at a time, one experience at a time. And it’s finally here! I put every bit of my heart and soul into this album, and I hope you love it. I hope you see yourself in it. I hope it feels like magic.”
“In a lot of ways, making this album was a process of self-discovery,” Jake explains. “It was my first time sitting down to make an entire body of work. So, I kept asking myself, ‘What do I want to say?’ Over the course of making the record, there was a lot of growing—personally and artistically. The last two years were some of the hardest and best of my life. That bled over to my music. To me, Lavender is an authentic body of work that’s honest to the stories I’ve experienced and am currently living. I’m really proud of it.”
Lavender features 14 tracks, including hits Married Young, Good Day, Come Close, and One On The Way all of which have garnered millions of streams.
Over the weekend Jake performed at Hollywood’s Hotel Café for a special Lavender album release show.
