Here’s a picture of baby Jake with his first lute.
Jake grew up to be a composer. He has written scores for multiple award-winning films including, 'Cumar - A Galway Rhapsody', 'Sooner or Later' and 'Grace and Goliath'. And although Jake has composed for MASSIVE symphony orchestras, he prefers the intimacy and detail achieved with smaller ensembles (a preference shared with budgets).
Jake has learnt from the best. His previous mentors include industry giants; Maestra Cecilia Weston (Moulin Rouge, Love Actually), Pete Anthony (The Hunger Games, Disney’s Dumbo), and Christopher Young (Spiderman 3, The Exorcist).
Jake also holds a masters degree in ‘Composition for Screen’ from the University of Edinburgh. (The lucky son-of-a-gun bypassed a bachelor’s!)
