Jake Shakeshaft

Jake Shakeshaft, originally from Newcastle-under-Lyme, was first seen on TV back in 2015 when he appeared on the fourth series of The Voice UK. After successfully getting three chairs to turn in his blind audition, Jake chose as his mentor. Eventually he made it to the third round.

While on the show, Jake met fellow singer Joe Woolford on Rita Ora’s team and the pair decided to form a duo called “Joe and Jake”. Together Joe and Jake managed to win “Eurovision: You Decide” when the BBC decided to return to a national final for the first time in 5 years and thus represented the UK in 2016 with the song “You’re Not Alone”. The song eventually came in 24th place.

Jake has been playing guitar since 2012 and one year later began performing solo gigs. Prior to The Voice and Eurovision, Jake made it to final of “NUA Entertainment Next Big Thing” back in 2014, held at The Cavern in Liverpool. | Find out more about this artist and others like them at
