Singer-songwriter and jazz vocalist, Jake Koelzer takes a pop forward approach on his newly released, sophomore album, Virtue and the Vice. The transition seems second nature for Koelzer as he moves seamlessly from one style to the next on the 14-track LP. The first single, “Bside,” is a hip swaying tribute to the singer’s musical inspirations, while the second single, “Acrobat,” recalls a riveting tale of grief and regret following the loss of a friend. Self-produced and engineered by Koelzer, Virtue and the Vice, delivers an authentic punch that is sure to intrigue listeners from many backgrounds.
"Koelzer already conjures the low-light ambience of hip uptown nightclubs and large downtown ballrooms, exuding confidence from flawless technique and spot-on intonation." - Lively Times
