Jake Andrews
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Andrews began playing guitar at age 5, taught by his father, John Andrews of the 60′s Roots Band Mother Earth. Since the age of 8 he has been trading licks with and opening for such masters as Albert King, B.B. King, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, and Jimmie Vaughan, starting at his hometown’s legendary club Antone’s. By his early teens he was wowing audiences and fellow musicians at such premier blues venues as B.B. King’s in Memphis and Los Angeles and Slim’s in San Francisco. He has performed at major festivals such as the San Francisco Blues Festival and Madison Blues Festival with Ray Charles. Andrews has been featured on CBS, Austin City Limits, Guitar Player, Texas Monthly and Vintage Guitar among numerous other publications.
By the age of 17, Andrews was signed with Jericho Records, a Warner Brothers/Sire subsidiary, and began working on his debut album in Los Angeles. In 1999, he released his debut album ‘Time to Burn’ with producer John Porter (Los Lonely Boys, BB King).

Billboard Magazine stated, “Time to Burn’s mix of guitar pyrotechnics, fiery vocals and powerful new songs confirms that Jake Andrews is already blazing new paths with the torch he’s been passed.” The first title single scored a Top Ten Rock Radio hit. Andrews earned the award of “Breakout Rock Group” in 1999 by R&R (Radio and Records). The record was supported with a national tour with artists including the Allman Brothers, The Doobie Brothers, Susan Tedeschi, Boz Scaggs and George Thorogood.

Andrews has released his fifth solo album ‘In the Shadows’ on Spectra Music Group. Released September 2017, ‘In the Shadows’ delivers a 21 st century wall of sound; heavy songs and intense vocals make for a powerful, tough, rockin’ guitar heaven. A remix of Andrews and Grammy winning guitar god Eric Johnson’s dueling guitar epic “Solid” makes a cut on this record.
