One of the most energetic rockers to emerge in the last year is 18-year-old singer/guitarist Jacob Cade, who drew quite a bit of attention with his explosive live performances and the song “Icky Nikki.” And now, Cade is looking to take it to the next level as he launches his new band, The BRKN.
The band recently released their debut single and accompanying video for the song “Your Existence.” See the video below:
“Making the video was amazing!! It was incredible, finally being able to fulfill my vision for a music video. Kyle and his guys of Digital Myle are super talented. They made every one of our wishes come true and brought many different ideas that enhanced the video even more. Such a great experience, can’t wait for the next one!” – says Cade
The band is now working on new material with producers Glenn Sawyer and Rich Veltrop at Colorado’s The Spot Studios. The BRKN is Jacob Cade – vox and lead guitar, Kick Stevens – rhythm guitarist and Mike Bokenkamp – drums. The band recently played Rockfest in Cadott, Wisconsin on July 20 and won over a standing room only crowd, sharing the stage Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, and Evanescence, among others.
As Cade continues to take the reins when it comes to writing all the material for The BRKN, he is thrilled about joining forces with his new musical brothers. “Couldn’t be more excited for this new project and record to come out!” says Cane. “Meeting Mike and Kick was such a blessing. For the first time, I feel like this is exactly where I’m supposed to be and can’t wait for the fans to hear the new music. We’ve added more to the live show and filled up the sound immensely. It’s like a dream playing with these guys.”
Cade, who picked up his first guitar at age four, started to make a name for himself as a teen. From the beginning, he has surrounded himself with exceptional talent first working with producer Michael Wagener on his solo EP, Hunger, where he was deemed “One of the most spirited rockers today” by My Global Mind. Highwire Daze called him “Massively talented and ready to rock your world.”
And others have recognized this young talent, as he has previously worked with the likes of Paul Taylor from Winger, Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger from Halestorm, and Rachel Bolan from Skid Row, and has already shared the bill with some of rock’s biggest names, including Steel Panther and Bobaflex.
With a new band, a new video, and a new single Cade is just getting started. The BRKN will be releasing more new songs with accompanying videos over the next few months with a full album and tour in the works.
