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.

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.
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.
