Jake Brisson

Saint Paul, MN

Born in Torington, Conneticut in 1993, this piano-based Indie Pop singer was taught early on by his grandfather how to play piano by ear as well as “Silent Night” on the Harmonica at the age of five. By the age of ten, he was taking private piano lessons as well as singing in his church choir. After a year of writing music on the piano, he started taking his composition skills more seriously. He had been writing poetry and short stories all his life, but he wanted to write the lyrics to his songs on piano. Last summer, he travelled to Nashville, TN to record a few tunes at Dark Horse Studios. Since 2011, he has been studying Composition at McNally Smith College of Music and plans to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Composition in 2014. Currently, he performs all around the Saint Paul/Minneapolis area (solo acts as well as with his band).
