Jake Bradford-Sharp was born in Enfield, North London in 1992 into a creative and musical family. From a very early age he was surrounded by music; his Grandfather, guitarist Geoff Bradford, has been called 'a pioneer of British Blues'. Jake was never in any doubt that what he wanted to do more than anything was to be a musician. He got his first drum kit at the age of 9, and was asked to perform by his school at many events and occasions, both as a soloist and as part of a band. At the age of 15 he obtained a distinction at Grade 8 drum kit for TrinityGuildhall and was recruited by The Reasoning at 16. He played his first professional gig with The Reasoning at Leamington Spa Assembly Rooms for the Fish Convention. Jake recorded 3 Albums, 1 Ep & a DVD with The Reasoning, and has performed all over the UK and Europe, notably at the inaugural High Voltage Festival 2010 when at the age of 17, Jake was probably the youngest performer there, Rosfest, Gettysburg in 2011 and 2013's first ever HRH Prog festival. Jake's skills were applauded by readers of PROG! magazine when we was voted 5th Best Drummer of 2010 behind such greats as Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy & Gavin Harrison. The Reasoning disbanded in 2014. In 2015 Jake joined Ghost Community and recorded the drums for the debut album ‘Cycle of Life’. The album was released on ROK Music to great acclaim from fans, friends and peers alike. They have completed a UK tour and rounded-off 2015 with a set at Planet RockStock. 2016 will see them perform at the sold-out Summer’s End Festival and a UK tour in December. They plan to record, release and tour the follow-up to ‘Cycle of Life’ in 2017. On 07/09/16, Jake announced his solo project The Invisible.
