ARTIST BIO

Jake Haws is a musician and composer based out of Springville, Utah. He has released 4 solo albums, along with several other projects and collaborations over his 25+ years of making music. His original compositions have appeared in numerous projects including the films Scout Camp, Hanging Five, and The Tailypo, as well as in dozens of podcasts. He has performed hundreds of concerts including performances at the Sundance Film Festival, Utah Arts Festival and opening for the notable groups Ryan Shupe & The RubberBand, Menomena, The Appleseed Cast, Neon Trees, and 31 Knots. 

During high school, Jake fronted the rock band Made In The Shade, after which he recorded his first solo album, “Ocean” in 2002. This collection of acoustic songs was released during his first year of college and serves as a farewell to his childhood home of Tacoma, Washington.

From 2005-2011, Jake owned and managed Muse Music Cafe, a music venue and recording studio in Provo, Utah, where he organized events and produced recordings for hundreds of artists, including his own groups, Declaration and Adding Machines.

While running the business, he also graduated from the BYU School of Music with a degree in Sound Recording and worked as a Sound Engineer at the LDS Motion Picture Studio and as a Global Marketing Intern at Sony Music Entertainment in New York City.

During 2012, he recorded 50 original songs over the course of 50 weeks and documented his progress in a blog called 50 Songs in 50 Weeks. He subsequently released an album of the same name.

In 2018, he released “Good Grief,” an album of original songs spanning across multiple genres (rock, folk, piano pop, electronica). He played all the instruments himself and recorded everything in his home studio.

During 2020, he co-founded an audio production business called Arches Audio, which specializes in music and podcast production.

He returned in 2022 with his fourth solo album, “Starting Over.” Written and recorded during the COVID-19 global pandemic, the album’s themes center around getting through dark times and finding light at the end of the tunnel.

He currently produces episodes of Making Music with Jake Haws, a podcast which looks behind the scenes at the creative process of writing and recording music. He also performs with his wife, Melissa, in the folk rock duo The Fab Folk.
