Four months ago Jake Lloyd released visuals to the lead single, Daily Interlude from his recently released album, MoonLit Mornings, which premiered right here on kutx.org. Now with the album out Jake decided to team up with videographer, Amir Rofoogar to reprise said visuals and do a fun style video for DSII produced single.

Jake Lloyd is a sonic explorer. Songs on his new album, MoonLit Mornings, move seamlessly from R&B to Soul to Rock n’ Roll all in the course of single track. When asked how he categorized his music, Jake just called it “hip hop/soul.” That may be an oversimplification but it certainly captures his genre-bending approach to making music. Jake Lloyd has been teasing singles off the new album but we think the best way to experience the new music is in person. Take a look for yourself in these videos shot during his recent visit to Studio 1A for a KUTX After Hours with The Breaks.
