    Jake is an incredible drummer! He makes my songs sound great and has the style and sound to make you sound better! He’s also extremely professional and super helpful! If others want to use my kit to record that’s ok but for my songs I’ll only use Jake!
    Pro players make a difference!!

    Excellent drummer and highly professional. I have worked with Jake for many years, always great to work with and always delivers the goods. I have probably done 30 tracks with Jake, maybe more over the years.

    I highly recommend him, good for all styles and projects.

  7. Review by Erin H.

    Working with Jake was great. He has an incredible pocket, the playing is smooth and tight, and the recording quality is excellent. He was responsive with revisions and was nice enough to send me a couple of takes so I could cut and paste. Definitely keeping him in mind for future work.

    I'm a singer/songwriter, and I have used Jake on my last three CD projects. Jake is first-class musician and he always comes up with drums and percussion that exceed my expectations. His drum tracks are always appropriate and awesome. He has a real talent for fitting the emotional intensity of any song I send him, and he always comes up with a solid rhythmic structure that often also provides powerful arrangement for the song. He's a joy to work with and always seems genuinely excited about what ever project I send.
