Jake is a member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, playing guitar as well as horn/sax, back-ground

is from his latest solo project "Eyes on the Horizon." The project is produced by Jake Hull and Clemons, and is
mixed by Eddie Kramer (The Beatles, David Bowie). The "We the People" single was remixed by Matt Musty and mastered
by Chris Dugan. The music video was shot in Canada and edited by Mark Rashotte.

I asked where he has been with his superstar vocals. "My father was a Marine Band Director, the 2nd black in the whole
Navy-Marine Corps. We lived in a military community. My grandfather, my dad's father, was an entrepreneur. My grandmother
was a science teacher with a Masters degree from Virginia! A black science teacher - it was a big deal. We all work hard.
We have a long lineage of not settling for less. It wasn't until I was 30 that I sang in public. My family has strong vocals.
My sister has a voice like Whitney."
The music video to the remix single was released on Inauguration Day
with clips of Black Lives Matter protests, and his friends, family and fans singing the chorus.
I want to brighten the world we live in," Clemons stated. "The original single was more Rock oriented. I hope to
make it clear the condition our country is in, is what we made it and we need to dissolve the diversity. There are things
we can agree on. It's been 200 years and we still far from reality."
What's up next for Jake? He said, "We're
going to release another single." www.JakeClemons.com
