Inside A Van is 604 Now’s latest series in collaboration with Indie Vancity. This week, we bring you a live performance from Jake Touzel, a local Vancouver artist.
Discovering music at the age of 13, Jake performed in and fronted a handful of other groups until realizing that his efforts were best spent solo. Fast forward to 2015, Jake released his debut offering the “BAD FAITH” EP, a collection of songs about admitting who you really are and not being afraid to leave people behind.
To get to know Jake Touzel on a more personal level, we threw the following random questions his way:
Most extreme sport undertaken: Rugby
Your teenage angst anthem: The end of Heartache – Killswitch Engage
Name of favourite imaginary friend (past or current): Dolf
Favourite local comfort food: Bestie! (currywurst)

Two line bio: “Jake Touzel’s smoky vocals paired with multi-generational alternative rock elements combine to form a balance of raw, whiskey fueled energy and crafted musicianship that resonates like a growing storm cloud.”
