Third-generation pro musician, Jake Morelli has been creating music his entire life. He learned the artform & business from his father and grandfather, both drummers. At four years old, his dad would bring him into local NY establishments to play guitar and sing the blues, while they passed around a cowboy hat to earn him video game $$.
The other early music mentor, was his godfather, the late and great Howie Blauvelt. Howie played the P-Bass and sang with Ram Jam (“Black Betty”), as well as with Billy Joel in the early days on Long Island in "the Hassels".
Morelli modeled his business acumen after his uncle Bob Morelli, current president of RED Distribution/ORCHARD(Sony) http://www.redmusic.com.
He’s taken these formative influences and become a Producer, Grammy Voting Member, Songwriter, Engineer, Musical director, Educator, Multi-instrumentalist, & international Performer.
Morelli has worn many hats over the years such as MD, to studio ace, as well as playing guitar for artists such as The Village People, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Roberta Flack, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Grace Potter, Ne-Yo, The Roots, DJ Jazzy Jeff, N’dambi, Hunter Hayes, The Jonas Brothers, Esperanza Spalding, Musiq Soulchild, Vivian Green, Nicole Scherzinger (Pussycat Dolls), Rodney Holmes (Santana), Wes Morgan & K’Naan to name a few. He has performed live on countless radio stations, as well as NBC (Jimmy Kimmel), ABC (Regis & Kelly), FOX, TBN, ESPN, MTV, and VH1.
