Hello! I'M jake greider


I am an independent song person out of Tempe, Arizona. I make original music which I perform solo, and with my band Some Magical Animal; I play covers and originals in lounges, bars, restaurants, weddings, and private parties in the Phoenix area; I make a pretty good curry.

If you're here about booking me for a 2-4 hour solo bar/lounge type gig or private event, I typically cover songs from Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, White Stripes, Jimi Hendrix, Wilco, Spoon, Beatles, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Radiohead... that kind of stuff. I'll throw some newer pop tunes into the set if the occasion calls for it, and I will learn a few songs if you need something specific. Hit me up for a song list.

For booking, check out the contact page, or just email me at Jakegreider@gmail.com and/or call (602) 733-9121.

My band is also available for booking at the same number.

If this section is blank it is because I have forgotten to update it... and yes, I am ashamed. Check my Facebook page for weekly gig updates, as sometimes I get booked day of. 


Shot this video with Freddie Paul on top of Papago. A string breaks about halfway through. My Youtube presence is sparse, but fierce. Peep the linkage, Tube people.
