Initially from regional Victoria, Jake grew up on dial-up speed jazz videos. Hit determination to pursue music was set from a young age, loving and inspired by his grandmother's late-night organ jams. Jake moved to Melbourne immediately after high school, and in only three years, Jake now plays over 250 gigs a year as a session keyboardist.
From thirteen, Jake began to tour nationally and internationally with various ensembles, and had the opportunity to perform in New York alongside acclaimed drummer, Tony Moreno. Jake's original compositions have been featured in France's biggest-selling jazz magazine, Jazz News. Jake was invited to perform his latest album at the Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés festival in France.
