Jake Allen, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards, Harmonica, Vocals: A unique stylist and virtuoso musician, Jake wows with his own breed of six-string wizardry, merging his exciting percussive tapping style into a music fusion that both rocks and grooves. With his multi-instrumental skills and ear for creating complete band arrangements, Jake creates live looping parts to produce the sounds of an entire band – all while performing solo. At a young age, Allen began exploring synthesizers and recording music in his father’s recording studio, taking on his own recording studio clients by the age of 15. Jake has performed throughout Europe, China, Russia, Japan, and North America. He’s played alongside Steve Miller, Stephen Bishop, The Accidentals, Andy McKee, Mike Dawes, and more. Growing up in Michigan, Allen was mentored by his guitar and songwriting hero, Dick Wagner, who influenced Allen’s ear for melodic, orchestral, and unexpected chord progressions.
