Jake comes from a long line of musically talented ancestry, paving the way to his love for music, and talent as an engineer, composer, and pianist. Both grandparents were internationally established artists. His grandfather, Umberto Vedovelli, excelled as a conductor & opera coach for La Scala Opera House in Milan and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. Grandmother Flora, performed for years as a concert pianist with his mother Fulvia singing, and playing the castanets.

Testimonials:

Jake co-produced, mixed and mastered my EP "Fall Away". Because there were many world elements to the songs, it was imperative to have a solid mix to give the tracks depth and dimension without crushing the dynamics. The final product came out better than I could have envisioned. Jake not only understood that I was looking to achieve a fusion of genres, but he actually made it current and marketable. He will be my "go-to" engineer for all my future projects. I highly recommend him!

Brenda K. Starr is a salsa star, and I'm proud to have mastered her single ʻEl Pez Muere Por La Bocaʼ that my buddy Jake Tanner mixed. The song's got perfect balance. I sprinkled some pixie dust on it and sent it out. Jake captured her charisma and put in punch, drive, clarity, warmth, impact, spatiality and dynamics — all of which I either kept or enhanced. What's not to like!!!! I'm really looking forward to our next collaboration

Jake and I have worked on many Projects, and the number one reason why? He's the best man!! Always on time, and never afraid of working, and reworking until it sounds PERFECT!
