Weekly Winner. - Introducing: Higher by Caleb Jacob
Explores the space between real human connection and a persistent need for self-medication.
Whether spending time in his hometown of Calgary or working in his studio in Toronto, Caleb Jacob has been dedicated to his music since writing his first song at age 13. Being the youngest of three siblings and always the youngest of his friends, Caleb naturally took on an introspective role, analyzing the experiences and situations he found himself in.
It is this passion for reflection that pulled him towards music, and away from everything else. He would skip class just to put his thoughts into songs that made sense of a complicated world. Today, Caleb produces much of his own music in addition to writing and producing for Toronto’s local scene. He has developed his talent for observation and storytelling into an introspective style of hip hop that is both emotionally vulnerable, and pop ready. "Higher" combines a bit of slow funk and deep 808-style bass with a lyrical prowess that explores the space between real human connection and a persistent need for self-medication.
All the friends I got are family
No one I know gets left behind
We've all hit our lowest points
But that's why we keep getting higher
