Jake Ohlbaum is a songwriter, producer, and full-time member of The Foxies, with an intense case of musical hyperactivity. Cutting his teeth in his hometown of Philadelphia, he’s worked as a professional musician since he was 16 years old, moved to Nashville in 2016, and has been fortunate to work with artists like Ruston Kelly, Emily Weisband, and Katie Pruitt, among others. His music has been featured in recordings by Universal and Concord, and his music has been featured in film, tv, and radio by the likes of The CW and NPR.
The Foxies have been touring the country and recording in Nashville since 2016, with stops at Bonnaroo, Summerfest, SXSW, and Nashville’s Live on the Green. After a year of headlining and supporting various national acts, the band released Growing Up Is Dead in May 2020, an EP that features in Rolling Stone, MTV, Alt Press, and more. It’s their most personal and ambitious release to date, unveiled about a year after their second EP, Battery.
Ohlbaum continues to write with the band, produce other projects, and go wherever the excitement of something new might lead. His work in The Foxies, as a solo artist, producer, and writer for other artists, makes him an exciting new vibe in 2020, where musical genres and boundaries seem blurrier each day.
