“Jakob Drummond is an Alternative singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer gaining a reputation for his experimental and genre-defying approach to songwriting.”
Born in the mountains of Northern California, Jakob was raised in a small agricultural community roughly 50 miles from the state’s capital, Sacramento.
At a young age, Jakob was introduced by his mother to a variety of musical genres. Through this exposure, his passion for music grew quick, but it wasn’t until 7th grade when Jakob would pursue his first instrument, guitar.
By high school, his instrument of interest had progressed to the bass guitar.
He would play in several punk and hardcore bands over the next few years, touring the states out of a small van and eventually landing shows at large venues and gatherings such as Sacramento’s “Ace of Spades” and “Van’s Warped Tour”. This exposure would prove to be a major factor in growing a large following for the Post-Hardcore band “Before You Fall” in which Jakob played Bass. After the band’s break-up, Jakob, now a multi-instrumentalist, found a new passion in songwriting and storytelling. He now aims to provide his listeners with impactful, heavy-hitting lyrics and ever-changing musical themes to create a long-lasting, honest ambiance perfect for any scenario or emotion. “
