Jake’s first foray into playing music was a result of his father being diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease and being unable to provide physical interaction with his son.

Concerned that he could not participate in sports with Jake, his father commissioned some of his lifelong best friends to teach Jake how to play the guitar and take him to regional bluegrass festivals.

Sadly, Jake’s father later succumbed to his illness, and that tragedy inspired the singer’s music.
