Jake Ward is the “#1 Best Kept Secret” on the Texas music scene according to Texas Music Pickers, one of the premier web sites devoted to Texas music. Well, the secret is out, as Jake’s third and fourth singles released to Texas radio, “Take my Hand” and “Lonely Street” both reached #1 on Texas Regional Radio Report in 2016. Less than two years after Jake and the band cut their first single, they have developed a reputation for high-energy original songs, blending classic country with contemporary rock and rich harmonies. All of these qualities are on display in their live shows and recordings.
Growing up, Jake was surrounded by diverse musical influences. He fondly recalls sitting in the back seat of the car listening to Elvis, the Beach Boys, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, George Strait, and other performers from many eras and musical traditions. His great grandfather was a legendary local fiddle player in rural Oklahoma during the depression, and his maternal grandparents were missionaries who taught and recorded music. Jake performed for the first time at the age of 7 at church, and by age 10 had participated in several local musicals in his hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. Source
