Although as an artist Jekob has performed alongside the lauded (and diverse) likes of No Doubt, Nelly, Counting Crows, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Garbage, Boyz II Men and Erykah Badu (to name a few) he still considers himself a producer first, & artist second. He taught himself to play by ear, write, sing, & produce shortly after his father bought him his first guitar when he was 13. His first instrument is Guitar, & second is piano. Throughout his time in the industry he has been sponsored by Carvin Guitars as well as several other local San Diego Brands. His software of choice is Digidesign’s Pro Tools, Waves Platinum, Izotopes Ozone, & Native Instruments Komplete.

LUKE WITHERSPOON III – Luke Witherspoon III was born to Pastor Luke A. Witherspoon, & Jacqueline Witherspoon on January 16th, 1989. Born into a musical family, he was already destined for greatness. With the ability to play drums and keyboards he tuned his gift into producing, where he was fascinated by the crazy sounds of The Full Moon Project in which Rodney Jerkins did most of the production. Also the music arrangements of the Neptunes, Timbaland, and Just Blaze has fine tuned Luke Witherspoon’s ear. Although great producers have been mentioned no other is a bigger musical influence than his uncle Marcus Witherspoon. With his patience he has fine tuned Luke into the keyboard player that he is at the age of twenty. Luke has already produced for acts like Washington Projects, Applejaxx, & many more. To hear some of his production click on the music tab in  the menu.
