Jake Miller Is Working On Being Happier

emilytreadgold #8, Features

TikTok and pop music are both my guilty pleasures during quarantine, so it shouldn’t surprise you that I caught up with Jake Miller during this time. The last time we met, he told me he was writing songs about being happier and I think “SAVED ME” emulates that exact feeling. We talked about his TikTok quarantine series and what else is on the horizon. 

Jake, so glad to catch up again! A lot has changed since I saw you perform in LA. What was the inspiration for "SAVED ME?"

Jake: Great to speak with you again! This song was inspired by someone I met who pulled me out of a dark time. I’m so happy now and only focused on the future ahead.

What are you doing to keep busy in quarantine? I know you're on TikTok, but anything else? 🙂

Jake: I’ve been home at my family’s house in South Florida doing anything I can to stay creative and busy. I’ve been writing a lot and practicing piano.

Favorite TikTok trend? And will you create a challenge with this new single?

Jake: My current favorite TikTok trend is my Quarantine series. They were so much fun to film with my family.

What do you think of music during self isolation?

Jake: I think now more than ever fans across the globe are benefiting from all of the new music. I think music is always such an amazing escape from the real world, but it’s definitely keeping everyone sane in this strange time.

What's next?

Jake: I will continue to write and put out music until I’m able to tour again.

"At 15 years old, I begged my mom to take me to Walmart to get Taylor Swift's debut deluxe album and I never turned back. This was my very first entry point to stan fandom. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee I was exposed to a ton of music - from rapping 3 6 Mafia to bopping to Justin Timberlake's solo discography. Now, in LA have a day job working in nonprofit development, but by night, I'm a full-fledged fangirl. I'll listen to generally any genre, but I'm a sucker for a good pop song. If you ever need someone to scream sing Carly Rae Jepsen's E·MO·TION with, I'm your girl. No, I still have not gotten over the One Direction hiatus. Please continue to respect my privacy.
