I was raised on a farm just west of the Twin Cities in Hamel, Minnesota. My dad Steve, and uncle Bob, farmed together with my grandfather, Hunk Scherer. Bob and Steve had a southern rock band called “Stampede” who played upwards of 5 nights a week along with farming full time. This is where my musical life began at a young age, watching my dad play old southern rock classics from the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Allman Brothers, Molly Hatchet, Bob Seger, and many others. The “Rose” comes from my little sister Jocelyn Rose who tragically passed away. I decided to use her middle name for my new stage name for this project to honor her and her legacy. I previously founded the rock band New Medicine who charted a top 15 Billboard hit with “Race You To The Bottom” and played over 400 shows around the US and Canada. I have been living in Nashville since 2012 penning songs for other artists such as Meatloaf, Colt Ford, Keith Urban, Sleeping with Sirens, and many others. I started working on the Jake Rose solo project about a year ago when teaming up with my long time collaborator and producer Kevin Kadish along with Taylor Swift producer Nathan Chapman at their new company: Starts With Music. Recording has begun and the debut EP for Jake Rose, and will be released in 2017.
