a Nice, Objectifying Tune :)

“10 in my Bed” is the last song I wrote while drinking, back in 2016. I had told myself “ima drink for 1 more month, so I’ll write what I write and figure out how to write sober.” As much as I <3 this tune, it was either met with a drunken “Oh hell yeah!” (sang the hook at a drunk dude at a bar once) or a confusedly lackluster: “Ha = trying to be funny?” I’m not so sure I’m trying to be funny [more below]… Please Share + Subscribe to my Channel!!

This tune is more a desperate yet tongue-in-cheek plea made quietly many of us with a Porn- and/or Love-addicted mind. I could prolly settle with much less than a 10 (it’s a lotta trouble anywhere above 7.23) and ya know they say: “You can either be Smart, Attractive and/or Emotionally Stable: Pick 2.”
I’ll just keep makin’ whatever music comes. Please Share + Subscribe to my Channel!!

New Song + Friday Gig in OTR


Been on fire writing material and sounding badass with Carly. “Jake Rathburn & Sis” are playing this Friday in OTR at Lucius Q at 7 – 9pm ==> Click here for Friday gig info!

Below is an example of combining of your 2 favorite things: music & snow. I recently wrote this tune, inspired by bein’ accused of by a scorned-ish lover “wtf you only write love songs!” and a later charge to “Write something good – these recent songs suck!” by someone else who is cool after all. Enjoy :o)

Email Fail: Why You Never Got Your Song -.-


If you haven’t been getting the “NEWSFLASH from RATHWORLD” email newsletter, I apologize. Meaning well, whilst adding ppl to the subscription they opted into – I’d personally write an email & send them a free song (by attaching an mp3). Unfortunately, that email with mp3 (and maybe all other emails since – newsletter included – went largely unseen.

If you’d like to hear the song I sent you, check your spam or junk for rathburnj@gmail.com. I’m sending the newsletter from Jake@JakeRathburn.com from now on, which sounds OFFICIALER anyway!

I sincerely appreciate your continued support.

Speaking of which – below is the 1st track on my 3rd album (BETTY). “Why Ya Gotta Be So Pretty?” is a pretty shallow title, but a nice lil jam nonetheless.  If you’d like to hear the rest of BETTY, click here for YouTube. It’s also on Amazon, Google Play, and Spotify. Please comment, share, and like. Thanks 🙂
