About Jake Cinninger
Jacob Alan Cinninger one of two lead guitarists for Chicago-based jamband Umphrey’s McGee. His style is a fusion of speed and soul, and resembles artists as varied as Eddie Van Halen to Jeff Beck.
Hailing from Niles, Michigan, Jake left the band Ali Baba’s Tahini to become a full-time member of Umphrey’s McGee in 2000.
Since joining the band, he has, along with founder Brendan Bayliss, become one of the group’s main singers and songwriters.
In 2001, Cinninger released a self-titled solo album. Several of its tracks developed into Umphrey’s McGee songs, such as “Blue Echo,” “Utopian Sky” which became “Utopian Fir,” and “Aster Heights” which grew to become “Roulette.”
In 2004, five years after their initial split, Cinninger reformed Ali Baba’s Tahini to record an album in the North Carolina mountains.
Jake is also endorsed by G&L Guitars and Fuchs Audio Technology.
