Jake was raised on a farm just west of the Twin Cities in Hamel, Minnesota. His dad Steve, and uncle Bob, farmed together with his grandfather, Hunk Scherer. Bob and Steve had a southern rock band called “Stampede” who played upwards of 5 nights a week along with farming full time. This is where Jake’s musical life began at a young age, watching his dad play old southern rock classics from the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Allman Brothers, Molly Hatchet, Bob Seger, and many others. The “Rose” comes from Jake’s little sister Jocelyn Rose who tragically passed away. He decided to use her middle name for his new stage name for this project to honor her legacy. Jake previously founded the rock band New Medicine who charted a top 15 Billboard hit with “Race You To The Bottom” and played over 400 shows around the US and Canada. He has been living in Nashville since 2012 penning songs for other artists such as Meatloaf, Colt Ford, Keith Urban, Sleeping with Sirens, and writes for Rezonant Music Publishing. He started working on the Jake Rose solo project about a year ago after teaming up with his long time collaborator and producer Kevin Kadish along with Taylor Swift producer Nathan Chapman at their new company: Starts With Music. His song “Sleeves” co-written with hit man Craig Wiseman is resonating with fans across the globe and is now on the airwaves as well as streaming. Look for Jake on his headlining tour this summer. Jake is booked by CAA. The Jake Rose debut EP to be officially released in 2018.
