AUDIO: Wylie Jakobs – “Seven Days”

Singer-songwriter Wylie Jakobs released a new record this past Friday. Written while he was home sick with COVID one week in 2021, the album was conceived as an exercise where Jakobs would write a song a day and see where his instincts would go. The result is a collection of seven tunes that channel deeply emotional and vulnerable subject matter, guided by acoustic melodies that get robust at times and mournful at others. Jakobs’ voice is bold yet gentle, full of conviction and candidness; lyrically he touches on themes such as love, loneliness, self-esteem, self-perception and escapism. He is joined by Therese Thompson for a duet in the fifth track “Short Piece of Twine.” Wylie Jakobs falls back in love with writing with “Seven Days.”
