Biography

Evan wrote his first song on an out-of-tune piano in his basement.

"My mom's an artist, so I think I inherited her talent but in another form. Because when I write music, or even listen to it, I see colors. I know it sounds crazy, but its true. So, when I write music I feel like I'm painting."

Evan Jacob is dedicated to writing music that will surprise his listeners. And that notion is the reason for his enthusiastic, cult-like following. "My major influences, Ben Folds, Tori Amos, Rufus Wainwright, The Beatles, and Guster all inspire me to...be"

He grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, and though he was cold, he learned that music made people happy. And happy people are Evan's favorite kind of people. "I hated homework so I graduated from the Hartt School at the University of Hartford with a BFA in music and theater. It was there I developed a sickness that involves the inability to walk past a piano without sitting down and playing it.

Evan lived in NYC, and he could often be seen playing at places like The Knitting Factory, Rockwood Music Hall, and Kennys Castaway.

Now you can see him in Minneapolis.
"Feel free to let go, let go to feel free."

Lyrics

The Happiness

Written By: Evan Jacob


We're at the end, you knew we'd be. So don't pretend you're over me.
I'm crazy, you keep on telling me.

Yeah I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit.

You got a lot of nerve to say you got over me yesterday.
If that's true then I guess I'm out of luck.

Yeah I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit.

I need to get through this. If I don't I'll be lost, oh I miss the taste of your lips when we kiss.
OH where is the happiness?

I got a lot of demons here, don't be afraid if they find you dear.
You know eveyone can lose their cool.

I may be still in love, and if you're not then I guess it wasn't love.

I need to get through this. If I don't I'll be lost, oh I miss the taste of your lips when we kiss.
OH where is the happiness?

I see your eyes light up when I'm with you. Now I'm blind and I can't see what's true.
But I still feel you, in my blood pumping through, yeah I feel what's true.

I need to get through this. If I don't I'll be lost, oh I miss the taste of your lips when we kiss.
OH where is the happiness?

Luanne

Written By: Evan Jacob

Hello Luanne how do you feel? You've looked like a mugshot all day.
Just let it go, cause everyone knows. It is how it is and its gotta be your way.

You've got it bad, good 'ol Luanne. You weren't supposed to be here at all.
But that's how it goes, yes everyone knows you can't lift a finger not no way not no how.

And what's with those pain pills you took. What's with that nasty look?
Your shields up there's not getting in. If you can't lose then you can only win.
Luanne you'll never change.

Well, well Luanne. We all see your plan to bring all of us down to you.
You like to speak your mind to the weak, you say, "Hey if its true then its no harm, no foul."

You make us feel sick. We don't have to justify it. Something must have conquered your esteem. YOu build it up by being mean, everybody pities you, no we're not afraid of you.
Luanne.

Trust, flcating away. Thus filling opinions to stay, plus holding in everything. Those who pass judgement will have judgment passed on them.

She Breathes

Written By: Evan Jacob

Light from the moon is filling this room. The light and Cecily's mood, and soon everything becomes cold.
No sleep in sight, no not tonight. I am awake in moonlight. And soon, I'm sure that I'll lose.

When she breathes, gently.
And she turns her back to me, you should see. Cecily.

I'm a child left alone when she wants to go home, but still i find comfort in her eyes.
And soon I'm sure that I'll lose.

Everybody's happy for you. Come on, forgive.

She won't let go she's holding on, she can't forget whats wrong. She won't move on.
She is leaving me too early. We can't resign to what's easy. She needs my love, she needs it. But she can't seem to recieve it.
