When he's not performing onstage, Jacob coaches and consults up-and-coming Singer-Songwriters on their careers: to develop their Performing, Songwriting, and Business Awareness.
From the brilliant coaches he’s trained under and the life experiences that helped grow his career, Jacob uses this information to lead Singer-Songwriter Retreats around the Los Angeles area.
January 10-12, 2020
What to expect:
We’ll dive into Songwriting, giving you tools and exercises to step beyond ‘writer’s block,’ reconnecting you to the joy and play in your work.
We’ll explore Song Performance, bringing your dynamic vision as a writer to life as a performer. You’ll find the true character of the song, giving you (and your audience) a visceral experience.
We’ll discuss the Business of being an artist: Bookers, Managers, how to inspire your band members, social media, branding… and all questions related to your career. These conversations will cause you to have new insights into how to find and take your next steps in success.
“The retreat with Jacob truly made me step up as a person- which I learned is also required to raise the bar as an artist and a songwriter. The work he does on this retreat is for those who are serious about taking their career to the next level. He is the most warm and encouraging person and genuinely wants to see you succeed and help make your dreams become a reality. I have gained total trust and faith in the work he gives me because I have seen myself grow in infinite ways already- as a person and as an artist.”
-Ashley Keene, Singer-Songwriter
