Jake Johnston is a 17 year old American Guitar player, producer, and composer in the group Skyhaven. He found a love for music at a young age, when his father introduced him to guitar. He was taught by Tim Henson of Polyphia starting when he was 13, where he developed most of his technical and songwriting skills. Jake started Skyhaven out of his bedroom when he was 14, and eventually found other members, they quickly gained a following in the Minnesota music scene after being established. Skyhaven has gained a respectable following over the last year on various social media platforms, specifically on Youtube.
Jake’s writing crosses many genres, incorporating many electronic and pop influences, with progressive guitar playing and techniques. He wanted a guitar that could cut through the layers of synth layers and virtual instruments that are used in Skyhaven’s music, yet also be expressive in his writing. Aristides provides him with an instrument that does just that.
