Jake Dominey is a consummate drummer. After his first drum lesson at the Merrick McCallum Drum School at age 15 he was hooked. Through his schooling years he performed in many local bands, including the Clarence Valley Orchestra.
Jake has studied a Bachelor of Contemporary Music (Performance and Education) at the prestigious Southern Cross University under renowned drummer and educator David Sanders. Here Jake honed his sense of timing, feel and groove.
Ever since Jake has been sharing his love of music with both domestic and international audiences, wildly touring Australia as well as through Asia.
As a professional musician Jake has written, recorded and performed with a variety of musicians, including Clocks and Dice, A Little Province, Claire Ann Taylor, Andrea Soler, Hudibrastic and Grammy-nominated artist Toni Childs.
