JAKE TOUZEL BAND
Discovering music at the age of 13, Jake Touzel performed in and fronted a handful of other groups until realizing that his efforts were best spent solo. Drawing inspiration from such artists including but not limited to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Constantines, Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley, Jake spent his early musical years playing countless café gigs. In 2007, he created the band Gordonn, to showcase the songs he had written with some talented friends to fill the gaps a musician cannot achieve playing solo. Recording a 5 song EP and playing the likes of Vancouver's Media Club and the Bourbon at the age of 17. The group disbanded in 2008.
The latter years found him performing solo, jamming with new friends, and continuing to write songs. Deciding to make music his focal point, he had a realization that, being the chief singer and songwriter, there was no better name for the project than his own, Jake Touzel.
December 2015 marked the release of Jake's debut offering, the "BAD FAITH" EP, a collection of songs about admitting who you really are and not being afraid to leave people behind. The four track album was produced and recorded by Jeff Zipp & Matt Drake at White Hart Studios in the heart of East Van.
"BAD FAITH" is available worldwide on iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.
