Jake Book
Jake Book is a old time musician, documentarian and songwriter from wild the midwestern state of Iowa. Growing up on a farm in the rolling hills of the southern part of the state, Jake learned about the banjo from his mother who played in the old frailing style. His mother also introduced him to many of the bluegrass icons such as Bill Monroe and Ricky Scaggs. This would stick with him while he learned to play guitar at age 10.

He grew up on the road with his parents attending historical reenactments focused primarily on the French and Indian War and Revolutionary War, something he is still very active in today. He developed a strong sense of history and heritage. During this time he was inspired by the music of Father Son and Friends and played with them around many campfires at reenactments across the country

We all bring something different and special to the table. We are not limited to any one genre of music. We believe there is soul in all music. We all come from different origins. Different life experiences make us who we are. We believe that we can best capture and express life's boldest statements as well as its most subtle declarations through our music. Our fans say that they often experience something that can't easily be put into words - a contagious feeling of freeness that can lighten your load and make you see things in a different way.
