Jake Sherman

Jake Sherman was playing music before he could tie his shoes. He began taking Suzuki piano lessons at age 5 but soon fell in love with ragtime, learning many Scott Joplin classics and even composing some original rags. It wasn’t until Sherman was 12 that he began studying jazz piano. He learned very quickly and was soon playing in ensembles. At 14, Jake discovered the Hammond organ. He received his first Hammond from the Brookline Music School and taught himself how to play it by listening to records and reading countless posts on Hammond organ listservs and websites.

Sherman has moved into the top tier of young musicians in the Boston and New York areas. He has appeared with Ralph Peterson, Gretchen Parlato, Bilal, Lalah Hathaway, Casey Benjamin, Jamire Williams, and Dave Fiuczynski, among others. In addition to jazz, he has become passionate about a variety of other styles of music. He plays gospel organ every Sunday at Eliot Church in Roxbury and often performs with other up-and-coming artists such as Nick Hakim, Jesse Scheinin, Sid Sriram, and Margaret Glaspy. He recently released his first solo album, which is available via his website.
