Jake Woodruff is the guitarist in New England melodic hardcore outfit Defeater (Epitaph records). Their latest release, “Abandoned”, was called “A rager of a hardcore anthem” by Substream and led Noisey to declare that they “will be a band remembered for taking risks.” Defeater has also proven themselves over years of touring as a mainstay in aggressive music.
Apart from Defeater, Jake is also a founding member of Dreamtigers, an indie rock project with members of Caspian and Defeater. Constantly on the road and recording, he plays guitar for Aisha Burns (Western Vinyl) and has played in Tigers Jaw, Miles Away, Make Do and Mend, Ambitions, and Hospital Ships, among others. He has also recently contributed to recordings for Caspian, Miles Away, and Hospital Ships
