Jake is a true Renaissance Man--mastering music, website development, and real estate. In addition, in 2013 his concern for the environment drove him to earn an MBA in Sustainable Enterprise. He also recently started acting and can be seen in recent block-busters 'Steve Jobs' and 'San Andreas', and has worked on films with Sharon Stone (Running Wild), James Franco (The Fixer), Jon Voight (The Wizard), Hugh Lowry (Chance), and Peter Fonda (You Can't Say No).

He has made his living as a California Real Estate Broker by buying and selling real estate and arranging loans for clients since 2002. He can be reached at 415-847-2670 and Jake@JakeBaker.com to discuss all aspects of real estate. Recently, he has been helping fellow Boomers transition into retirement by helping them make informed financial decisions, then having his crew pack up, clear out, and fix up their homes prior to listing them for sale.

He has been the leader of The 7th Sons since they formed in 2010.

He started his professional music career after graduating from High School when he was discovered by the leader of The Jefferson Airplane, Paul Kantner, and his girlfriend Grace Slick while performing in the band "One" in a park down the street from Paul and Grace's new home in Bolinas. Paul helped the band sign a record contract with RCA Records subisidiary Grunt Records.

With the exception of one 10-year break from touring and performing, Jake has continued to perform with many, many bands including local favorites Judge Murphy (Landsdale Station), John Neff (Night Sage), Eugene Huggins, and Joe Tate.
