Welcome! I’m Jake Lives and I write music for Film, TV, and Video Games. I'm also obsessed with all things Pixar-related. For a detailed bio, scroll below.

Detailed Bio:

Jake has been in constant demand as a composer and musician. As a drummer and percussionist, he has performed with groups worldwide specializing in a wide range of genres. As a composer, he has written original music for TV shows, films, and video games, with his music being heard in media from BBC Radio, Nintendo, and other industry giants.

Jake’s music has been heard around the world, reaching a wide range of audiences. His work, King of Kings, was performed on tour by the Draper Philharmonic & Choral Society in France, Austria, Slovakia, and Czechia. Having composed and produced multiple game audio assets, he received a nomination for Best Artistic Content at the 15th Unity Awards in 2023.

Something not many people know about Jake is his abiding love for Pixar films. His ongoing collection of Toy Story replica toys decorating his office is a testament of that love.

Jake has a bachelors degree in commercial music from Utah Valley University, where he met his wife, Emily, a cellist and nurse. Together they adore their dog, Bo, a barker and goofball.
