ABOUT JAKE

Jake Kershaw has accomplished more than some twice his age. He has had the privilege of playing with great performers such as Jonny Lang, Anthony Gomes, Larry McCray, Albert Cummings, Walter Trout, and has opened for Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Tommy Castro and the Painkillers, Bernard Allison, Marcus King, and Tab Benoit. Jake recorded and released his first album, Piece of My Mind, in the summer of 2017 when he was just 16 years old. Earlier that year he was honored with his first endorsement from Heritage Guitars as a Young Artist. He has since been endorsed by companies such as Lizard Spit, JobeTone pickups, Apex strings, and Medina Made straps. Jake has also won a “Jammie award from Western Michigan’s WYCE radio for “Listener’s Choice Best Album by a New Artist” and “2018 Emerging Artist of the Year.” All of this and he has maintained a 4.0 GPA taking honors and advanced placement courses, is a member of the National Honors Society (volunteering at least 50 hours a year at charitable events), Symphonic band, and marching band, in which he plays the euphonium at Marshall High School.

At the age of 9 Jake began playing the acoustic guitar. Although he wasn’t a big fan of this, at the time, he continued lessons for a few semesters. At the age of 11 he received his first electric guitar, a Fender Starcaster combo kit, as an Easter present and everything changed. He immediately bonded with the electric guitar and rarely put it down. A fire had been ignited deep within his young soul; one that continues to burn stronger every day. The guitar is the first thing that he picks up every morning and the last thing he lies down at night before he sleeps.
