ROCK ON! This Week's Sound Bites...12/14/17

By Danny Coleman

originally published: 12/14/2017

His website says that he's a, "Gentleman Rock & Roller" but the man who is sometimes known as, "Chito" is far more than that. You see, 18 year old Colorado resident Jacob Cade is setting the music world ablaze with his material; most recently a six song EP titled, "Hunger."

"Yeah, it's a six song EP and I worked with Michael Wagener which was awesome! The songs are straight forward rock 'n' roll with a modern twist," says this young man whom possesses a veteran musician's talent. "I'm in love with the music and I can't wait to take it out on the road."

 Cade has been playing guitar since the age of four and began doing so by watching his father. Eventually leading him to become a self-taught guitarist and a multi-instrumentalist. He has recently added piano to an arsenal which includes violin and drums and he shows no signs of quenching his thirst of musical knowledge."I got into music, I mean really into music when I saw Michael Jackson dance to, "Billie Jean," he said with enthusiasm. "I knew that I wanted to be an entertainer from that moment on and then when I was eight years old I got the, "Guitar Hero" game. Later that night I saw, "The Song Remains The Same" and when I saw Jimmy Page on stage, I just said, I wanna do that! I've not stopped trying to learn new things and instruments since; I like to broaden my horizons (laughs)."

Living in Colorado is a nice change of pace for this young rocker who speaks warmly of his home states music scene but yet he admits that his goal is to get out on the road and pedal his wares to the various music capitals all around the country. A recent two week tour of the U.S seems to be just what the doctor ordered and has increased his zeal to continue. "The Music scene here is OK, great places to perform if you work hard enough. It's thriving but not as much as a Los Angeles or Nashville and those are the places that most musicians need or want to be. I had this tour with Bobaflex and it was great! They were looking for an opening act and since they needed someone we jumped on it; we left on Thanksgiving Day."

With the release of, "Hunger" comes the drop of a new single and Cade has chosen, "What's Your Problem?" as the one to give to the masses; which he did with the help of Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan"I've got Michael to thank for that," he explained with reverence in his voice. "He put a bug in Rachel's ear and we came up with this killer song. There was this guitar riff and Rachel said, "Let's run with that one" and it developed from there. The lyrics and the messaging are good as it is about being different and being different is good because no one normal or should I say deemed normal has ever really done so. All the great artists and engineers, scientists have all been a little different (laughs)."

So for now, Cade will keep his trio rolling along, learning, rocking and rolling but of course, always as a gentleman. To discover more about Jacob Cade; please go to
