Jake Paul Band is an original rock band with a reggae influence. "A modern day Sublime" is one fan's description of this new band. Another fan said, "Their lyrics are spiritual and real. Some of their songs remind me of Citizen Cope."

Jake Paul Band is influenced by artists like Bradley Nowell (Sublime), Dave Matthews, Layne Staley (Alice In Chains), Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead), Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, G-Love, Slightly Stupid, The Pharcyde, 2Pac, Citizen Cope and many, countless artists who share the love of music.

JPB puts on a great live show by transitioning from their acoustic ballad creations into free-flowing jam band, energy driven, improv's.

Jake Paul Band is financially supported and sponsored by their own indie label Anamoly Records, LLC.

How did JPB form?
Jake's mother was murdered in the 90's and her case had NOT been closed or solved. He wrote the song "Hollow" and set out to share his story with the world as a singer/songwriter. After college Jake connected with an old friend and guitar player, Chad Layton. They started jamming together and Jake's cousin, Johnny G jumped into the jam with his keyboard. One day Jake entered a print company to get merch printed and he noticed the guy behind the desk had a bass guitar in his office. "A chill ran down my spine," Jake said, "I knew I was exactly where I was meant to be at exactly the right moment in time." Dan, or "DanK," was in the band. What about the drummer? ...just ask one of the guys at the show...
