One of five siblings born in the South Texas town of Weslaco, this Rocking-Gypsy Blues player was said to have started playing at 3 years of age.  Influenced and taught by his father’s Mexican-Folk style, Jake soon acquired a love and passion for classical music.  His father always played for fun and would bring his family together to play by passing around the guitar.  Jake studied classical, jazz, and opera in college, while his fingers were unleashing burning “licks” yearning to go out and perform for crowds. 

Jake has great respect for his influences like his Dad.  Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the Eagles are among a few ; however Jake has applied his own interpretation of their music into his own style.  Jake is currently residing in McAllen, TX as a full time musician, studio guitarist and private instructor.
