WELL THEN I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THAT YOU
well, you asekd…
2019 PORTLAND, OR: An established music producer, audio engineer, beat maker, mixing & mastering engineer with over 15 years experience and about 5,000 recordings under his belt - Jacobthewilliam has been there/done that, but still manages to maintain a uniquely mysterious ability to stay "off the grid" and out of the limelight. Which, according to him, requires an immense amount of effort [No kidding]. With an already lengthy, well endowed music career going for him, in 2016 everything changed. After a series of life altering events in his personal life, Jacob made the decision to forfeit his career as a record producer, and quit music altogether. Literally, by cutting all ties within the industry while even getting rid of all his instruments and pawning his gear and giving away his recording equipment and anything else that reminded him of his “previous life” as he considers it.
But why? What for? This is the difficult thing for me to understand: Because, well, as a music journalist having interviewed hundreds of independent artists who all struggle to have a life dictated by their music - to see someone who has it all just one day up and leave it behind? Or to everyone who’s given everything they have toward working in a studio…As a career… To be producing acts like The Shins, Modest Mouse, Explorers Of The Dreamworld, Everclear, The Dandy Warhols - whoever - & Just to give up and throw it all away?
