I am a loud spectator and an individualist.
I write at low points and recently (unless it has spilled out of me), I’ve accumulated hours of voice memos of me mumbling with pretty guitar in the background. I like to make gentle music in contrast to my surroundings. I can tell when a song is gonna happen when I feel my heartbeat slow and I can focus; on a normal day my mind goes really fast and I am infamous among my family for losing my train of thought mid-sentence. When I was a kid and we were out in public, I would get distracted by something and leave whoever I was with and whatever I was doing to stare and walk towards it. My family would call that Jake’s world. I find that I write my best music in Jake’s world.
