After years of honing his craft, local lyricist Jake Lloyd is prepared to share his biggest project yet. Native Austinite Jake Lloyd II returned from A&M in 2009 and quickly made the decision to pursue music making as a full time endeavor. Reuniting with high school friend Danny (DSII) Saldivar, Lloyd formed Kicks & Khords and released the Wishful Thinking LP. Kicks & Khords eventually blossomed into a full band experience before dissolving in 2012. After a brief stint with Big Money Gators, Lloyd was determined to drive his solo music with all his energy, and along with DSII, The Jake Lloyd LP had begun.
Hardly two weeks into 2018 and Lloyd is set to release what could be his crowning achievement! Jake Lloyd’s release show takes place this Friday at Swan Dive along with JJustine, Anastasia and Breezah. No need to wait to dig your teeth in though – check out the infectiously grinning feeling you get from listening to “Mile”! You can listen to Jake Lloyd right here on KUTX.
