Biography

Jake has always, from birth, been able to make music with things that should not make music, and music with things that do! He was always interested in music. He taught himself to play the guitar before he was 11, and formed his first band,
Half Life, while a junior in Perkins Tryon High School. Soon after graduating, Jake was instrumental in forming remede, and together with Rion, Vernon, Kevin, Alan, Shawn, Zane, and Kenn, they played from Ponca City to Dallas and lots of
points in between 5 nights a week.
But time changes things. The band disbanded. Jake decided to go back to his roots. He is now writing new lyrics and music, and is now playing acoustic gigs.
His first love is now and always has been his music. He truly is a man with a mission. His lyrics are very heartfelt and sincere and expresses the feelings of a young man coming to terms with life.
Jake's influences are many in number and in style as well. There are so many over the years that he is sure he has left out someone! But here goes:

Shawn Howard, Ragan Parkerson, Kevin Miller, Brooke Brunken, Amy Brinker, REX, and all the P-Town gang, and of course my family, and Mom and Dad!
