We’re going to be starting a new section on the website for testimonials and stories about how Jacob, his guys and his music have affected people’s lives, or just how they’re feeling about the music.
Here’s one we posted last week on Facebook:
And then there are stories like this, with Jacob’s music literally becoming a soundtrack for someone’s life:
Hey y’all, thought I would share a story on how Jacob Davis and his music has worked its way from my ears to my heart. I have been listening to Jacob’s music for about six months now and I absolutely love it. Jacob, the band members and the squad has made loving Jacob’s music so easy to do. When you listen to an artist’s music as much as I do, you tend to have songs playing through your head here or there and maybe never even notice because it is a good song, and then the next day it’s something else or someone else. I have known for quite some time that Jacob’s music was different. It makes you feel different, his music makes you want to fall in love when it’s a love song like Letter Jacket; or makes you want to shake it when it is a dance jam like Get Down (James Brown).
On a random Saturday night out with my girls, I threw in my Jacob Davis koozie (because every proper Squad member represents loudly anywhere) and went to a new bar. The girls and I sang along with the band, had drinks and enjoyed life like any other Saturday night. That’s when it changed. I didn’t know it completely at the time but I met one of the nicest guys on the planet. We had drinks, chatted, danced the night away and exchanged numbers. I’ve been guarded for quite some time and it is probably cliché’ to say that I was waiting for the right guy to break down those barriers. I’ve allowed music to infiltrate that portion of my life; be my boyfriend, my love, my go-to. In a very short time I have realized this guy (we’ll call him Nick) has given me the feelings of receiving a new song from Jacob. I’m excited, anxious, happy, smiley, trying to learn all the words (learn everything about him), etc.
After one completely too late night of texting and refusing to go to sleep, I woke up thinking of Nick alongside two different songs of Jacob’s. Thinking I was crazy (no pun intended), I immediately texted some of the squad girls. I had to tell someone that Jacob had clearly passed through dream state. So what songs you ask played around in my head? Losing It and Thinking Bout You. I realized about that time Nick had won me over much like Jacob did, fast and strong. That feeling when your favorite song comes on, or the one you know you have to dance to. For me it is usually Get Down (dance jam) or my favorite, See You Around.
“I never ever felt this way, I think you got me going insane, can’t get you off my mind girl” – Losing It.
“Thinking bout You, every day every night every 24/7 365 all the time , girl it’s all I do”- Thinking bout You.
Jacob was the first artist in a while whose music just completely spoke to me and I had to listen to everyday. Is it too cliché to say that he opened my heart a little? Because looking back over the last six his music has continued to speak to me and change me. That’s what good music does, it changes you for the better. I want say I appreciate and adore Jacob, the band and his music for changing me a little which had allowed me to open my heart to the most amazing guy I have met it the longest time. Now, I just need to keep those Sugarcoated kisses for only me.
