About Jake Jones ~
Learning his first song on guitar at 6-years-old, Jake Jones is no stranger to the six string. As a teen living in a small town dominated by sports teams and cow tipping, musicians and musical opportunities were few and far between. With no one to jam with and a burning desire to make music of his own, he picked up a four track recorder and became his own band. From drums to piano, Jake Jones began expanding and fine-tuning his musical abilities in an effort to write and produce his own music. By the time he graduated from high school, Jake had already begun to build a clientele that would span from country and bluegrass to hip/hop and metal.
Today, Jake plays guitar for the Atlantic Records rock group "We as Human". Having toured with a diverse array of artists from worship acts including Kari Jobe and Newsong to heavy hitters like Shinedown and Papa Roach, it has allowed him to keep a keen eye on an ever changing music industry. His attention to detail and the ability to play an array of instruments have made him a proverbial "triple threat" in an industry where budgets are shrinking and the demand is growing.
