A month ago my father had a serious heart attack and my family and I were given the news that he would be lucky to live through the night. I had to cancel a lot of shows and I had to face the reality that I might never hear my father's voice again. I want to thank everyone who prayed for my dad and who supported me during this difficult time, especially my wife and the band. This experience taught me that life can change in an instant, and we shouldn't take anything for granted. I am happy to report that my father is doing well and expected to make a full recovery. Through this experience, I learned that the true rockstars are heart surgeons and ICU nurses. Thank you, Dr. Sergio Tavares, for saving my dad's life. I owe you.
I'm also happy to report that I have signed with True Grit Talent Agency and my agent, Shelby Vanek, is booking some great shows for us. We rescheduled our Brewster Street show that we had to cancel for September 28. In the fall, we'll be releasing our next single, Heartland Girl, which will be the first single off our upcoming EP. We can't wait for y'all to hear the new songs. We'll be filming a music video soon.
2018 came close to being the worst year of my life and has turned out to be one of the best years, which has inspired me to write new songs. I'm so blessed to have the best family, friends, and fans in the world! Thanks for the love. See you at a show soon! Jake
