Babydaddy is considered a bear by many members of the gay community due to his husky frame, beard and friendly demeanor. He unwittingly became a sex-symbol for other bear admirers after the launch of the Scissor Sisters' first album Scissor Sisters. He has even acknowledged this status by stating "Jake gets a lot of attention just by virtue of being the lead singer, but when the boys want a little beef, they come to me."
Since then, the band has grown and recruited further members, in the process expanding its original musical style to cover the rock, disco and dance music genres.
Babydaddy plays a number of instruments including keyboards, guitar, bass and banjo; he and Shears are the main lyricists for the band. The two also wrote the hit single "I Believe In You" for Kylie Minogue, as well as the title track from her documentary White Diamond. Babydaddy has also co-produced with other artists including Tiga and Xavier and has produced remixes (alongside Jake Shears under the Scissor Sisters moniker) for Pet Shop Boys, The Ones and Blondie.
In 2010, Babydaddy remixed disco icon Amanda Lear's new single I'm Coming Up.
