Biography

Born in Seattle, Washington, Jake Moulton has been performing professionally for almost 20 years. Mimicking the sounds of a drum kit, as well as utilizing the more organic sounds inherent in beatboxing, Jake has created a style all his own; a driving, technical style that makes his work with vocal groups, bands, and as a soloist powerful and successful. His strong musical ear allows for strength in both beatboxing and in his re-creation of many instrumental sounds, including the guitar, trumpet, flute, harmonica and turntables.

As a founding member of the rock a cappella band Kickshaw and later as member of the world-renowned pop/jazz vocal group m-pact, Jake has performed at countless jazz and music festivals worldwide. Over the years, he has shared the stage with many of the music industrys greatest talents, including Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Herbie Hancock, Sheryll Crow, Boys II Men, Kenny G, Hearts Ann Wilson, and the New York Voices, just to name a few.

Currently, Jake is the beatboxer for the original rock band without instruments, The House Jacks.
