Singer, rhythm guitarist Jake Livgren is both a talented live and studio performer with deep, family roots in Kansas and musician blood flowing through all instruments. Jake’s appearances are numerous and varied: performing on Sony’s “Odyssey into the Minds Eye” a computer animation video to “Somewhere to Elsewhere” by Kerry Livgren.
Jake is a member of Proto-Kaw, the progressive rock band formed by Kerry Livgren, a direct precursor to Kansas. However, many seveneightfivers may best recall Jake as rhythm guitarist and vocals for Jabberwockie, a local quartet rockin’ the early 2000s.
Today, Jake’s projects continue to be varied, as expected, and include work with Phoenix, a German producer working in Q Base and Brazil band Brilliant Liars. He hopes to release an EP with Bill Evans from Flying Colors by end of 2020.
