BIO

Jake Morelli has been creating music his entire life.  He’s a third-generation professional musician who learned 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 $ for video games.  

 

Another one of his music mentors was his godfather Howie Blauvelt, who played bass and sang with Billy Joel and the Hassels, as well as Ram Jam (“Black Betty”). Growing up, Morelli modeled his business acumen after his uncle Bob Morelli, current president of RED Distribution (Sony) http://www.redmusic.com.  He’s taken these formative influences and become a producer, songwriter, musical director, engineer, multi-instrumentalist, international performer, and educator.

 

Morelli has worn many hats over the years such as MD, to studio ace, as well as playing guitar for artists such as Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Roberta Flack, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Grace Potter, Ne-Yo, The Roots, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Hunter Hayes, The Jonas Brothers, Esperanza Spalding, Nicole Scherzinger (Pussycat Dolls), Rodney Holmes (Santana), K’Naan, Wes Morgan, & Musiq Soulchild 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.

Saving the best for last, he is also the Producer/Musical Director of his wife Donn T www.Donn-T.com

While not on the road, Jake is busy around the clock in his studio, producing music for TV/Film, various artists, as well as being a part of the worship team at 1st Baptist Church of Paschall, in South Philadelphia.
