20-year-old Jake Linux, also known as Jake Henderson, is putting on for his city in a major way. Hailing from the historic city of St. Louis, Missouri, Linux is using music and creating to tackle depression and anxiety.
Growing up with parents, who divorced early in his life, is the main reason why he is so passionate in his flows. But music is something he was born into.

“It is not easy to thrive in a city that bases talent off of popularity,” exclaimed Linux. As a newcomer he prides himself on remaining true to who he is as a person and artist.
His sole purpose for writing music is to help his self, and anybody going through the same hardships, over comes pain.
