Jake Gray has been writing songs since he picked up a guitar in his teenage years. His style is a crossbreed of Rock and Americana. It is the country rock sounds of the Eagles, meets the storytelling of John Hiatt, with a slice of Foo Fighters attitude.
Jake can be booked for 1 to 3 hours, either as a solo act, or up to a full band.
Shows will typically be a mix of rock, country, and Americana covers, with a few originals from his four albums thrown in.
Brad ~ Jake Gray puts his blood into these songs—heart, artery, vein, and vessel
Bethany ~ Jake's smooth and fun singing and strumming had our whole family humming and swaying the whole night. Jake brings a versatile repertoire that ranges from feel good classics to fresh original songs that reminded us that we we were not just listening to live music we were experiencing a little bit of magic
Recognizing how important music was to the foundation of his being, Jake wanted to share the gift of music with kids. A few years ago, he started a non-profit foundation, The First Chairs Club, Inc., that helps provide instruments to high schools where students can't afford to pay for instruments.
Jake is a multi-instrumentalist. On his records he will usually be found playing acoustic, lead, slide, and bass guitar. He also plays the harmonica, mandolin, keyboard, and will at times, take his turn at percussion.
