FRESH: ‘Shot In The Dark’ – Jerry Jacobs

Jerry Jacobs returns with “Shot In The Dark”.

by Christopher Smith

Born in Charleston, South Carolina and raised in the era of unlimited access to endless genres of music, Jerry Jacobs uses a wide range of influences to deliver a unique perspective on modern country. He discovered his love for music at a Hootie & The Blowfish concert at age five, and hasn’t looked back since. Jacobs and his band are nationally renowned for their high-energy live show that seamlessly disregards genre lines in the name of nostalgia and authenticity.

Of his new single “Shot In The Dark”, Jerry tells us that: “This song is a huge risk for me personally and musically. It’s an extremely personal song that really pushes the limit on the experiences in my life that I’ve let out into the public via song. Musically, it’s a a huge step into the direction I want to go, but it also is a step away from the more traditional sound that I’ve had in the past. I’m so excited to share this song with the world and see where it takes me”.

His debut album “Carolina Tonight” hit the iTunes Country Top 15, and Jacobs followed up with a series of fun-loving singles including the tequila-slinging bar anthem “Read Between the Limes” and fan favorite “Making Of A Memory”. Jacobs most recent release, “Kinda Carolina”, is the second of two summer singles in Jacobs musical bull pen, and fans can expect a flood of new music until the end of 2019. Jerry Jacobs is an unapologetic 90’s kid with an ear for catchy country/pop/rock bops.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
