Jacob Seeger is a rising singer-songwriter who established his craft through self-taught sufficiency. The limelight was first cast on Seeger when he was just 17, following his victory in a local performance competition, Englewood Idol, where seasoned industry heads made note of his talent. Through his educational tenure at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center, he managed to kickstart his career by scoring an opening slot with Los Angeles rock duo Best Coast. From there, Seeger continued to earn acclaim through his self-produced debut, Girl – EP, as well as several follow-up singles within the next few years.
Now 22, Seeger has attained noteworthy proficiency with his most recent single, “Something Real.” Right off the bat, the song does work well as an auditory complement to its cover art, with a neo-retro soul sequence bringing to mind a late night blue color palette. Seeger’s voice benefits the track as a whole in its lacy chill pop factor, and there’s a generally well-implemented sense of dynamics between his vocal delivery and that of the instrumentation. It’s interesting to note that the song was originally intended for a TV pilot only to soon be scrapped. If anything, the song would fit nicely as part of a current gen rhythm game.
