Jake D continues to work hard on being a versitile musician, learning to play multiple styles. Recently at the 2019 Chicago Drum Show fans were able to see that in an intimate setting at the Odeum Sports & Expo Center. Saturday morning of the show, Jake D. woke up his audience with a powerful cover of the Shadows Fall song "What Drives the Weak". Jake has had the opportunity on a couple of occasions to study with Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner as he passed through Chicago on tour. Here you'll see Jake's rock chops getting a good work out! (Jake D is currently studying with Hannah Welton FanPage) Enjoy...

THIS IS A COVER: Jake D. did not write, compose or record this original version. Jake D. does NOT own any rights to "What Drives the WeaK".
