This week we meet Jake Clemons, a solo musician, singer and songwriter who understands legacy. Since 2012 he has been the saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, after the death of the band’s original saxophonist, his uncle Clarence Clemons. We discuss performing with his famous uncle in church, having big shoes to fill and much more.
