In addition to his work with Ms. Clarkson, Jake has performed and/or recorded with John Legend, Meghan Trainor, Darius Rucker, Charles Kelley (of Lady A), Brett Eldridge, Kelsea Ballerini and countless others. He has toured extensively in the United States, Europe, and Russia. In addition to his free-lance ventures, Jake is also an accomplished bandleader and composer, regularly hosting jazz jam sessions in Nashville and releasing music under his own name.
