Inspired and eclectic, Jake Hawrylak is a multi-instrumentalist who specializes in curating a mood for his clients. For over ten years, he has been in-demand as a session musician and band leader. Whether it's something relaxed and contemplative with his jazz group Underlines Quartet, the simple yearning of his solo sets as a singer-songwriter, or a full blown party with his indie-pop group Sedgewick, Jake has plenty to offer.
Price Range: $100 and up
For nearly 10 years I have been a professional musician and educator, and for the last three I have been bringing these skills to the greater Chicago area. For most of the regular clubs and restaurants I've performed in the goal has always been to carve out a space for the live music that is the bed on which an experience can happen. I love working with clients that have specific visions for how the whole mood of a room could come alive with the addition of a group, and I love the challenge of catering to that while still offering a unique experience.
My repertoire consists of jazz standards new and old, as well as over three hours of popular music ranging from classic rock, soul, funk, folk and everything in between. I have original music to offer as well, upon request.
I do curated playlists as well, should you have specific requests in mind. For more information, don't hesitate to call or email me directly. Thank you for your consideration.
