Jake Sherman
Jake Sherman
With one foot in the piano pop lineage of Ben Folds and Randy Newman, another foot in the jazz organ tradition of his mentor Dr. Lonnie Smith - and perhaps yet a third foot in the expansive soul of Stevie Wonder- the three-footed Jake Sherman has proven that he can walk the walk.

Sherman honed his sound by playing gospel organ at Baptist churches in Brooklyn, as well as performing and recording as a sideman with such artists as Bilal, Meshell Ndegeoello, Chance the Rapper, Nick Hakim, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, and Benny Sings.

Exhibiting a wide scope and endearing humor, Sherman’s music is a synthesis of popular and esoteric elements, combining glimmering orchestral spacescapes with lo-fi drum machines, and vintage keyboards. But make no mistake - this is pop music, cemented as such by Jake's lyrical charm and strong penchant for melody.
