Jake Allen is a young yet seasoned artist originally from Northern Michigan. Since creating his first musical compositions at age five in his father's home studio, the evolution of Jake's sound has been many years in the making. His music, complex but very accessible. It's something he calls "progressive ethereal rock." With a general "rock music" base, Jake seems to draw his main inspiration from the ear pleasing and peak moments within all genres. This truly makes this music an artistic style of its own.
Jake is one of America's most active independent workhorse artists, spending about two thirds of each year on the road, both solo and with his full band.
While touring solo, Jake's acoustic style of using both hands on the fret board, alternatively slapping the guitar for percussive effects, has “wowed” audiences in venues through his nationwide tours. While touring with the full Jake Allen Band, the level of musicianship and talent on display from the four members of the group has stopped listeners in their tracks. The show is a high energy musical exploration that plays out like a movie for the audience to view within.
In addition to guitar, Jake also plays keyboards, bass, drums, harp, and many other instruments. Jake performs all of the instruments heard on his albums recorded on the indie record label, Dharma Records, and he is currently touring with Jake Allen Band in support of his new critically acclaimed project, "Etherica."
