Jake started out as a percussionist...

and at the age of 15 when he got an opportunity to do his first professional tracking with a local band and Producer Steve Browne from Big Time Audio. This ignited his love for music and shortly after he started gigging weekly with local groups playing between 2-4 shows every week.  

For the next couple of years Jake picked up numerous instruments including the guitar, bass, organ, piano, accordion, and mandolin. From the ages of 19 - 24 Jake spent months touring part-time and full-time as a professional keyboardist for different local and nationally known groups. Over the past 8 years Jake has played hundreds of shows all over the United States and parts of Europe as a instrumentalist for other groups as well as performing his own music.

During these years of touring Jake played on over 40 radio singles and albums with various groups and has produced a number of records through his own production company. Jake now does all his own recording, producing, editing, engineering, mixing and mastering. In his free time Jake does what ever he can to help out local artists get up off their feet.

After living in Austin and spending time on the road for 5 years as a keyboardist for other groups, Jake moved back to his home town of Dallas TX  to focus on pushing his project. After months of auditions Jake  found the perfect group of solid musicians to join him on stage. 

 

 
 

Through years of experience performing, writing, and composing, Jake has found his own unique style by using his skills as a keyboardist to mix spoken word poetry with live soul and alternative rock.

Jake and his group The Main Street Sound now strive to put on a high-energy unforgettable performance at every show, giving a whole new outlook on live music.  

 With this, Jake released his debut album "Clockwork" in 2014 which brought such a buzz that Jake gained over 80,000 combined social media followers in just 14 months. Jake then released his full length  album "Echoes" which reached number #7 on the New Release Best Sellers iTune charts, helped him to get more regional and national attention from radio stations, blogs, and Television outlets.  

After spending the past year on the road performing and in the studio writing, Jake is now getting ready to release his new 18 track album "The Call Room" March 25th of 2018.


"Music is my life, and I gave it everything I have. There is no going back now. Without these keys, I am nothing but a broken dream". said Jake in a recent interview. With the heart and soul that Jake and his group possess, it seems like nothing will stop them from making Jake Dexter and The Main Street Sound, a household name.
