Winter Wanes, Love Blooms…

JM tshirt
Jacob Moon T-shirt entry. Select your favorite and then wear it. Details below.

Now I realize that the header may not seem true for some of you that aren’t in Seatle…on both counts. But winter can’t last forever (can it?) and love can (if you feel a bit low on love, fire up some Jacob Moon music like ‘Love of Mine’). I also understand how too much work gets in the way of us enjoying the better things in life – Jacob Moon music, puppies, rainbows, and sleep! I can’t seem to shake the work bug enough to get out regular blogs this year. Tonight, unfortunately, is not an exception but there is exciting news for us Jacob Moon fans.

First up, you can see a couple of the designs, one above and one below, in competition to be the first Jacob Moon merchandise. It is not the first JM shirt as we had one celebrating the first 20 years of Jacob’s musical journey (now a collectable item). Here’s a chance for you to help select the next awesome merch design though:

Jacob MoonSomeone more poetic than I once said: ‘If music be the food of love, play on’.

JM Now

What Jacob is up to now.
“I’ve been writing, dreaming up new things…and coming back to the guitar to try and learn some new tricks. Studying Robben Ford at the moment. Amazing tone and intelligent soloing…learning a lot!
Also trying to keep my voice in shape in this lighter touring season, so I have found karaoke versions of my favorite songs by bands like Keane, Sqeeze, Ray Lamontagne and Gabe Dixon, and am singing them every day, while recording karaoke versions of my own songs as well. Good times. I am entertaining pubs full of people in my mind every night.
I am booking for the next few months, and excited about shows at Simcoe Little Theatre and Aeolian Hall. Looking to head west again in April/May to hit BC, AB and SK.

I am aiming to get set up with a more robust creative space here at the Woodshed, and updating a few things over the next few months as I start writing and pre production on the next recording. It will be an all-original EP at least and maybe more if I can find the songs.

Spending lots of time with family and loving it. The kids are 5/6/7 now, and I want to enjoy this season with them while they are so young and still want to play with daddy.

Picking a T-shirt design winner today based on the vote (see link above). Thankful for all my FANSI supporters who are making this creative season possible, and will be wearing a new T-shirt very soon!”


So don’t let a little winter weather slow you down, let your love bloom with a bit of Jacob Moon music and fan support sporting a new JM T-shirt!!
