20+ years on guitar. 150 original songs and recordings since 2010. They call me “one take Jake” because of my studio proficiency. I’m an indie rock specialist. Let’s get your track spruced up!
I got my first guitar in 1996. Master of Puppets made me want one. Later on, Radiohead opened my eyes. I entered into a prolific period in 2010, and have written and recorded over 150 songs since. I’m still going. My specialization is indie rock, which is a big umbrella. I’m working on a sort of post-punk, Parquet Courts meets AC/DC thing now, inspired by the big chunky rhythms of Malcolm Young. I live in Brooklyn, and I’m always looking for new ways to express myself on my instrument. I take instruction well, and I love trying to work toward someone else’s vision. If you don’t have a vision, I can help with that too. I’ll lay down licks, or co-write, or just talk shop with you until we figure it out. I can write lyrics as well. I'm basically just comfortable and highly creative in a studio setting. I’m eager to get to work.
