ABOUT

My name is Jake Hill. I'm an experienced saxophonist and bassist always looking to start or join a part-time project, mixing funk, jazz, soul, blues, rock... I don't mind starting off jamming to cover tunes, but am always looking to write and record. Give me a shout (jakehillsax (at) g...mail...)(you can also look me up on and message me from the FB messenger.) If you can double instruments, all the better (all the more options.)

I'm also an experienced studio musician, so give me a shout if you need a sax, bass, percussion, and/or vocals for your recordings. (Will travel, within reason, for recording.)
