Rob Daniels is also a professional musician with years of studio and stage experience. As a guitar player he has played music alongside Jake for close to 11 years now and shares many of Jake's touring accomplishments.
In the beginning Rob studied guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music and learned about recording at The Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio. He began his musical journey writing, playing, and producing recordings with his own rock and metal bands through the late 80's, 90's, and early 2000's. During this time he opened shows for top name acts like Lamb of God, Mastadon, King Diamond, Firehouse, God Forbid, Dope and others. After years of indie touring in bars and music venues on the East Coast, Rob got the opportunity to join a professionally touring Country Music Artist in Nashville and started the transition to the Country Music World in 2007.
Since then, Rob has toured in the live bands for Jimmy Wayne, Sunny Sweeney and Country Music legend Tanya Tucker. He has been on major tours with Artists like Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, etc. and has opened shows for Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Alan Jackson, Big & Rich, Alabama, and many more. He has also appeared in a TOP 20 video on CMT & GAC, and has played on multiple TV broadcasts.
In the studio, Rob's focus is more on the engineer/producer side of things. He records the majority of tracks at JD's Joint including tracks for Artists like Chris Young, Jess Moskaluke, & Seth Ennis. At times, Rob lends his guitar playing to some of the more uptempo/rock type tracks. He also co-writes and co-produces Jake's own albums, so he too has the view of a songwriter, studio musician, engineer, and producer, and has worked on music from the writing room, to the studio, to the stage.
