From the sunkissed shores of Canada comes a new wave of music called surf hop, created by the energetic brothers duo Sam and Jake Cooke. Their groovy tunes are stylistically-inclusive and upbeat, melding hip-hop, nu-funk, and neo-soul for a refreshing swirl of vintage and modern sounds.Sam brings electricity as the wonder boy at centre stage, amping up the crowd with his infectious positivity and engagement. With his trademark head of curls and puka shell necklaces, Sam is as much a style icon in person as he is with his distinctive voice. With a smile as bright as his future, there’s no doubt he’s ready for a good time. Jake brings remarkable talent but a humble spirit, while producing and singing on many of the tracks jake keeps everything flowing smoothly, from studio production to performance operations. Jake had the vision for 538st while touring in the States with his mobile recording studio (“The Band Wagon''). By the time he returned, Sam was on board and the band was in motion. The brothers are always there for a good time, happy to make people smile (one of 538st’s main motivators). They always strive for musical growth and evolution while they stay grounded in their roots; 538st is named for their childhood home, in the town where they have a vigorous fan base of dedicated supporters.
