about jake


Jake is a virtuoso session drummer who was born into a creative and musical family. His Grandfather, the guitarist Geoff Bradford, has been called 'a pioneer of British Blues', and his sister is a talented singer. Jake got his first kit at the age of 9, and by age 15 had obtained a distinction at Grade 8 drum kit and began touring with live bands.

Since then Jake has recorded numerous albums and DVD's with various artists, and worked with lots of clients around the world providing live drums as an online session drummer. He performed at the inaugural High Voltage Festival 2010 (in the company of such acts as ELP, ZZ Top, Marillion and Dweezil Zappa) at just 17, and in the same year was voted 5th best drummer of the year by classic rock magazine behind such luminaries as Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Gavin Harrison, and Nick D'virgilio.

Jake records all of his drum sessions for Kollab clients out of a top of the range studio in Camden, and has access to award winning engineers if production is also required. Take a look at some of his videos on this page, which were all written and performed by Jake. These show not only his virtusotic skill and groove but also the dedication and passion that Jake brings to the kit.
