Jake Thomas started his musical adventure as a young teen when he first laid eyes on the Gulf of Mexico. As his toes hit the sand, he felt an instant love for all the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean. His salty veins had a way of always pulling him back each year and, several years later, he arrived in Orange Beach, Alabama for the first time.

He drew from the inspiration of the little beach town to write songs, choosing many local hangouts like Tacky Jacks, Pink Pony Pub, FloraBama, and Lulu’s as part of a focus for his songs. Combined with the white sand, the emerald water, and the breathtaking views of Perdido Bay, he knew this magical place was the missing piece to the puzzle.

Jake was fortunate to broaden his writing and playing skills when he met singer/songwriter, Eric Stone. Together, they wrote a song called “Beer Money” which appeared on Eric’s CD “Permanent Vacation.” The song was based on a true story when Jake came across a homeless man holding a sign that said, “Why lie? I need beer money.” He fell for it, gave the man $5.00 and told him to have a beer on him.

A short time after that, things began getting serious when Jake met Nashville songwriter, Mike Schultz. They began writing songs about their love for the Gulf and quickly came up with enough songs for a CD. After 2 failed attempts to record the CD, it was then that Kevin Johnston of Orca Sound in Baltimore, MD came onto the scene. Drawing from Kevin’s experience in Trop Rock music with Kevin’s band, Captain Quint, he was the right fit to produce Jake’s first album. His professionalism and ideas were able to turn Jake’s music into something he had only dreamt about. “Life on the Gulf” was released in 2006 with immediate hits in the Trop Rock genre including the title song, “Life on the Gulf” and catchy fan favorite, “Grouper and Beer.”

Following the success of “Life on the Gulf,” Jake began playing for parrothead events including one of the biggest, Stars Fell on Alabama. The Jimmy Buffett-type of events were exactly where Jake’s music fell into place. The like-minded individuals loved his music and he was soon inspired to write more songs for another CD.

“Salt in My Veins” was Jake’s follow-up CD, produced by Kevin Johnston and released in 2010. It was immediately picked up by internet radio stations including BeachFront Radio, Island Dreams Radio, and Permanent Vacation Radio. With songs like “Shot of Mexico” and “Corona Drinking Dreamer,” the CD offers a beach party vibe. Jake’s song “Time for a Change” from the album was voted within the Top 15 songs of 2011 by the listeners of BeachFront Radio.Jake Thomas

Jake immediately went to work on his third CD. He wrote with Mike Schultz and Kevin Johnston, working meticulously to put together the best album to date. He added some country and rock influence into his beachy themes, creating a sound that will cater to everyone. He released the first single, “Tequila Happy” in 2013. Not only was it picked up by internet radio, but it was also picked up by Radio Margaritaville, as well as FM radio stations around the nation. The listeners of BeachFront Radio voted “Tequila Happy” within the top 5 songs of 2013 in BeachFront’s Top of the Trops countdown.

Production continued on the CD and Jake’s third album, “Nothin’ but Sun” was released in July, 2014. “Nothin’ but Sun” includes a song about Jake’s beloved Gulf called “Waterline” that will leave you mellow and feeling like you don’t need anything but a hammock and a beach. His remake of Van Halen’s “Beautiful Girls” has his own twist on it and his playful “Busted in Jamaica” will have you laughing (or crying). His entire album can be heard on internet, satellite, and FM radio around the country.
