From car-seats to the stage, Jake Shockley had always had his heart in the music. Inspired by U.K. blues musicians and classic rock (a la Brian May, Peter Green, Eric Clapton and Rory Gallagher), he first picked up the guitar at the age of 10. From there, he found a love for punk and garage rock, and has poured his passions between those worlds to create his own eclectic style.
Throughout high school, he played in a variety of cover bands across Naples and Ft. Myers. It was in one of those bands that he met Chris, his future Roxx Revolt and the Velvets bandmate. But, his drive to create original music always fueled his fire, and it was when he met his RR&TV bandmates, Roxx and Dan, that it all came together.
Now, Jake lets lightning out of the bottle and electrifies audiences across the circuit with his rocking riffs and melodic solos.
