I’ve worked with Jake on a variety of projects in the past and have always been happy with the results. He seems to have a knack for very quickly being able to see what the artist is trying to achieve whilst also being able to look at projects from an objective point of view, and so is able to suggest things and steer projects in a direction the artist may never have thought of. I’d gladly trust his input on any musical project.
