Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Singer-songwriter, Jake Koelzer returns with a full-length album that blurs the lines between vocal jazz and pop. The result is a texturally rich album that seamlessly moves from one stye to the next. Described by first listeners as, "Beautiful, thoughtful, complicated, and yet perfectly suited to each tune and feel." "[The] lyrics are smart, compelling, and meaningful - truly." Virtue and the Vice is available now for purchase, download and streaming.

Originally from Bozeman, Montana, Koelzer studied jazz performance at Berklee College of Music and graduated from Montana State University. His music is an eclectic blend of contemporary vocal jazz, blue-eyed soul, and pop. Lively Timeswrote in response to his 2010 debut album, "Koelzer conjures the low-light ambiance of hip uptown nightclubs and large downtown ballrooms, exuding confidence from flawless technique and spot-on intonation." Jake has studied with critically acclaimed musicians such as; Jake Fleming, Jeni Fleming, Ryan Matzinger, Eden Atwood, Gwendolyn Leathers, and Daniela Schauter. He has been featured with numerous trios, combos, and big-bands. 

Koelzer is currently based in Portland, Oregon and preparing for a Spring Tour 2017.
