JakeHyland

A Colorado-born guitar and keyboard player, Jake grew up between the downswing of classic, guitar-based rock and roll and the emergence of heavy metal, punk and synthpop music. Country and Blues, however, is Jake’s fervor, and he has cultivated and preserved his deep roots in these genres, attempting to incorporate leading-edge resonance into his piano harmonies and guitar rhythm.  

 

When asked why he does not solo more, Jake simply stated that he would miss his rhythm too much. Jake’s rhythm style oversteps the boundaries of simple sixteenth note chord chinks, and by blending swing jazz, blues, and folk harmonies, his country-rock rhythmic style can reveal both a dusty punch or understated gentility.
