In 2003, Jake Stratton founded his original rock band Ten With Strangers. With Jake as the songwriting and co-producing (along with Johnny Geib) force behind the band, Ten With Strangers' 2004 debut album "INFECTIOUS" made waves in the Chicagoland music scene by landing six of the ten songs on major rock radio stations in the area, leading to additional publicity such as radio interviews, live radio performances, and stellar critical reviews.
With his songwriting and producing talents recognized, Jake gathered the band with a semi-new lineup and once again teamed with co-producer Johnny Geib for Ten With Strangers' 2009 follow-up album "WAKE UP CALL." Jake's incessantly catchy songwriting and slick co-production once again earned rave critical reviews for the album.
In 2014, Jake took over lead vocal duties for the first time on his fully self-produced punk/rock/pop EP release "THE SURVIVAL" with several tracks reaching as high as #1 on streaming service nationwide Top 10 Punk Rock charts. Additionally, in 2014, Jake also released a retro dance/electronica EP under the alter-ego band name "Supersonica."
Now, in 2019, Jake has teamed up with lead vocalist Zane Spiegel and self-produced the release of multiple country rock hits, now available on all major digital services!
