Your new album, “Silver Lining” has gotten an amazing reaction from your supporters. What has been your thought about the reaction of the album?
I think this has been my favorite fan reaction to one of my albums yet. They are who I make my music for, so seeing them connect and relate to it is amazing.
How did the idea for this album come about?
Silver Lining is all about my day to day life. My life is a rollercoaster. Some days are amazing, some aren’t. Just like everyone. I’ve had a million ups and a million downs but life is all about seeing the silver lining in things and realizing that good things come out of every bad thing.
Any fun moments while creating the album?
It’s just amazing creating this whole album in my bedroom because there is absolutely no pressure. No guidelines or rules to follow. That was the best thing about creating this album.
You write your own music so Whats the process of writing one of your songs?
Usually I create the beats first, then I record different takes where I mumble gibberish on the song. Then once all the melodies are great, I’ll fill in the gibberish with words, which is my favorite part.
Whats been you favorite song to write and why?
My favorite song to write was Think About Us because it was the first song I wrote off the album and it just came so naturally. It was such a therapeutic studio session.
I watched a few of your music videos for your original songs and they are amazing. Whats the process to make a “Jake Miller” music video?
It all depends on the song. I usually get together with my director and try to think of creative ideas that we’ve never done before. It’s all about one uping yourself every video, every song, every album.
