Composer, producer and session drummer. Working in a variety of fields and genres, with artists and directors from all walks of life.
English drummer, musician, composer and educator Jake Bradford-Sharp is a technically proficient artist working in many musical fields: regular gigging, tutoring, session work & composing music for TV & film.
Jake discovered his love of progressive music and its blend of styles early on. He immersed himself in the sophisticated style. At the age of 16 he joined his first professional band & honed his craft on the touring circuit. In 2010 he was voted the “5th Best Drummer of 2010” by readers of Prog magazine.
Jake fell in love with composing, and his ability to jump between styles and genres effortlessly yet still bring a unique and recognizable sound is creatively showcased in his showreels.
Over the years Jake has developed his own unique take on the Electro Swing genre; His first release of ‘Nu-Jazz Experiments’ fused older genres such as swing and gypsy jazz with modern electronica, EDM and dubstep. Since then he's expanded his compositional skills into more orchestral works, his synthwave-tinged project entitled Dark Future, & continuing to explore the Electro Swing genre that sparked his compositional journey into TV, film and game music.
Outside of performing drums and composing music, teaching is a passion of Jakes and as such, he is a permanent tutor at Bang Drum School in London.
