Jake Hooker

Jake HookerJake was born listening the sounds of traditional country music through his father’s west Texas country band.  Born in 1976, Jake began playing the bass at the age of seven and practiced diligently until he mastered the honky-tonk sound.  Jake formed his own band at the age of 14 and began performing.  By the age of 18, Jake was playing bass and singing full time. 

He spent some time at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas studying music and theory.  Jake moved to the Fort Worth area in 1998 where he quickly became the local favorite. Jake began playing upright bass in 2002 and has loved the instrument ever since; he feels it is the key to a lost sound. 

There is no doubt that Jake is strongly influenced by the sounds of Ray Price, Johnny Bush, Farron Young, Curtis Potter, Leon Rausch, and Darrell McCall, yet he still sings with his own conviction and style. You can catch Jake performing on shows such as Tru Country and West of Wall Street on RFD TV.  

Along with his TV performances Jake spends time as a studio musician, both in the playing and producing facet, a spokesperson for NRS and as an  inspirational vocalist at many types of church services.  Jake’s graceful and professional image on the bandstand, along with his voice and talented band make his show unbeatable!
