Jake Laufer

Jake Laufer


Electrifying singer/songwriter in the mold of Ben Folds and Elvis Costello with quirky, unforgettable songs and powerful stage presence.


The July, 2009 release of Singer/Songwriter Jake Laufer’s second studio CD, Notes from the Sherpa Underground, features the musicianship, soulful vocals and quirky lyrical stye that made him a longtime favorite of the Mid-Atlantic club and college scenes. Having shared the stage with everybody from Rick Springfield to Eric Hutchinson, Jake has proven his ability to entertain crowds and win fans at venues large and small for over 10 years. Jake’s literate acoustic pop has been compared to artists like Ben Lee, Elvis Costello and Matthew Sweet, with poppy hooks and thoughtful lyrics that reward multiple listens. Now based in Los Angeles.
