The Jake Rivers Band: Friday March 11th @ 7pm
Jake Rivers grew up in San Jose, California. Son to a single mother for most of his early years. When he wasn't with his family or in sports, he spent most of his time writing music on a keyboard in his bedroom. Picking up the guitar while in high school, Jake quickly latched onto a whole new world of songwriting as a coping mechanism for many of life's difficulties. Rivers lists some of his many inspirations to be Carly Rae Jepsen, Foster the People, Oasis, The 1975, Goo Goo Dolls, Keane, Max Martin, and of course Coldplay.
Most of what you hear in Jake's music is written entirely by himself. From every melody and rhythmic noise you hear, to one hundred percent of the lyrics, Jake likes being apart of the artistic process throughout the whole journey of each song. With a few exceptions, he will be the writer, performer, and producer of his original work unless otherwise noted.
