Short Bio: Jame Doe is electro-pop singer Jake Moffett. Keagan O'Brien works the synths and drums. Jame Doe takes inspiration from Years and Years, Elton John, Adele, and Fleetwood Mac, in addition to avant garde fashion, plants, and the LGBTQ community.
He is also the co-coordinator of OUT/LOUD, Portland’s bimonthly celebration of queer live music.
Recent Press: The second act of the night was Jame doe. His music is self-described as "Queer power pop you belt while descending a marble staircase in your favorite cloak." And that is no exaggeration. Slow and emotional, his music has a massive presence.
Jame doe’s voice is electrifying, with a range that is haunting and sends shivers down your spine within five seconds of listening. The saxophone accompaniment by Joshua Davis was perfect, with flirty fills that bring life to the songs. He played a new song for the first time live called "Skin" that was simply mesmerizing.
Before introducing that number, he had some positive words about Portland's new queer showcase, "This is so special to me to have a night of queer music."
