Jake Kulak: A Rock Icon in the Making


Jake Kulak’s new single “The End” combines indie rock style with pop songwriting and
explores themes of idealizing nostalgia and growing into oneself while missing the
person you were. The song features guitar focused melodic lines and tight rhythms, and
a dynamic arrangement that is as energizing as it is melancholic.

Jake Kulak’s signature guitar driven sound tells the story of newly found freedoms that
come in tandem with growing pains. Through his honest lyrics, Jake explores the
complexity of human connection, and one’s ever changing place in the world. Despite
embracing the nostalgia, he never lingers too long on the past. His energetic playing
style and dynamic live performances encourage audiences to live in the moment.
Hailing from Hartford County Connecticut, Jake is a young guitar phenom who quickly
found his place in the regional music scene. Inspired by the authenticity and raw
emotion of the Blues, Jake immersed himself in the genre, thrilling audiences from

five summers playing in the home of the blues - Clarksdale, Mississippi.
