"Never heard of Evil Jake? Don't worry - soon they'll be one of those bands that you end up changing the radio station when their latest over-played hit comes on... " - fm sound
"full of catchy, perfected pop gems... a promising debut from a real NYC rock trio" - ctmusic
"rocking and instantly hummable tunes... the songs are short, crisp and catchy as hell, just the way all good power pop should be... Evil Jake made this tried-and-true form of music sound fresh and vital." - Thomas Pizzola, Hartford Advocate
Evil Jake is about superior pop songwriting, refined virtuosity (no shred here), and kick-ass live performances in the vintage rock style. Unlike so many of today's so-called bands who live and die by detuned power chords and Pro Tools deception, the boys of Evil Jake can PLAY. With guitar virtuosity that'll shake your ass while breaking your heart, backed by a rock-solid yet explosive rhythm section, Evil Jake layers and intertwines parts to create a 'veneer of sound' - no smoke, no mirrors, just great musicians playing great songs.
With a tip of the hat to the past, and a damn-the-torpedoes vision for the future, Evil Jake will make you remember just how much FUN a kick-ass band can be. With influences ranging from KISS to Motown, The Ramones to Phil Ramone, Evil Jake has been compared to a range of bands including Weezer, Foo Fighters, Elvis Costello, and The Police. The hooks, the licks and the attitude are all in place. Within months of its debut, Evil Jake was already in rotation at stations around the world, kicking butt on mp3.com, appearing on national television, and packing clubs with their vibrant form of rock.
"WHY AREN'T THESE GUYS SIGNED? Best CD/song title ever... extremely clever lyrics (an understatement), think Elvis Costello meets They Might Be Giants, plus "get up and dance" music mixed with hint of rockabilly. Track seven: 'Be my Ex-Girlfriend' alone is worth the price of admission." - Aural Fix
"Amidst the current soundscape of dour metal, gilded pop and mall punk, Evil Jake separate themselves from the pack... the music that Evil Jake play is undeniably and unapologetically fun. Almost any of the albums 13 tracks could be the theme song for your favorite television sitcom. All Evil Jake seem to want is for you to remember what is was like when rock got everybody all shook up..." - Switch Magazine
