Weekend Two of ACL, baby! Those gates are wide open and ready to receive fest-goers of all kinds. For those who’ll be out at Zilker early tomorrow, you shouldn’t have a lot of trouble getting close up to the T-Mobile stage for a favorite of The Breaks and beyond, R&B vocalist-songwriter-producer Jake Lloyd. Along with our August 2022 Artist of the Month Deezie Brown Jake Lloyd makes up one half of Geto Gala, and be he paired up or strictly solo, you can always tell how much pure passion is stored in his pores.
The temps don’t look terrible for this weekend, but knowing Jake’s work and performance ethic, he’s sure to work up something 12:45PM this Saturday, whatever the weather. We’ve included a couple pop-ups from the past below to get a sense of what to expect. However, if you’re the type to lock into an artist and learn all the lyrics so you can impress your festy-bestie by singing along in concert, check out the full video and animated short for Jake’s latest banger. Wonder what ’80s-era Stevie Wonder would sound like if he’d ever teamed up with Sir Mix-a-Lot in his prime? Simply press start on “Sweat”, another outstanding entry into Jake Lloyd’s already-resplendent discography.
