JACOB & THE DAZEY CHAIN Jump Into Summer With New Single “Swan Dive”

JACOB & THE DAZEY CHAIN
JUMP INTO SUMMER WITH NEW SINGLE
“SWAN DIVE” (Listen Here)

Swan Dive,” the new single from JACOB & THE DAZEY CHAIN, releases today (July 15) and is available on all streaming platforms. Written, arranged and produced by the emerging pop/rock singer/songwriter/guitarist Jacob Reese Thornton, his third single leads the way to his debut EP’s fall 2021 release on indie label Gratuitous Noise. Listen to the song, with its brisk tempo, soaring melody and shimmering guitar work, here and watch the lyric video for “Swan Dive” here.

“I read a quote that said, ‘When you take big bites out of life, life sometimes bites back.’  That inspired ‘Swan Dive,’” says JACOB.  “I was partly thinking of musicians I know who, like me, put our music out there against impossible odds.  But it’s more universal.  I’d say it’s about throwing caution to the wind.  Overcoming fear and self-doubt.  But also being careful what you wish for.”

The forthcoming EP THE SKY’S ALL I NEED TO GET HIGH features Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters) and Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses) on the yet-to-be released title track. The EP will include “Swan Dive,” “The Kids” and his first single released in January 2021, “Traces” (listen here) received nods by Classic Rock Magazine (“Tracks Of The Week”), continuous spins by industry tastemaker Rodney Bingenheimer on SiriusXM’s Underground Garage and was also added to Apple Music playlist on NPR’s KOSU Radio/The Spy FM “New Music Weekly.” A limited run of vinyl for the upcoming EP is available for pre-orders (here).

JACOB & THE DAZEY CHAIN is relocating this summer from South Florida to Nashville, TN where JACOB’s musical family roots have been planted for several decades. “My great grandmother owned a small label and recording studio on Church Street in the late 60’s called Varsity Records,” he says. “Her daughter (my great aunt) made a living in the 70’s playing piano in the venues along Printer’s Alley. I like to think I come by all of this honestly.”

“I believe good art challenges people to think, but at the same time
I don’t feel musicians should tell people how to think.” -JRT

THE KIDS,” the new single written, arranged and produced by artist/guitarist Jacob Reese Thornton of Jacob & The Dazey Chain, has been released today, May 13th, (listen here). The South Florida rock artist performs all instruments on this track except drums, which were laid down by session ace, Lee Levin (whose credits include Barry Gibb, Kelly Clarkson and more).

“The Kids” is a reflection of the world my generation is inheriting–-cynicism and a sense of peril,” says Jacob. “It feels like what I’ve read about the late 1960’s. Music had a huge cultural impact then. It was not disposable and it mattered.” Jacob goes on to say, “At the time I wrote this song, two things were going on really.  The anger that came with this country’s last four years of political divide, and the awful school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School here in South Florida–20 minutes from my own high school. It left the entire South Florida community reeling. None of us really felt safe after that, and unfortunately these mass shootings continue. Our grandparents had to worry about a nuclear event and had fallout shelters in their high schools. My generation has to worry about the bullied kid with assault weapons shooting up the school. I thought the students who spoke out after that were very brave–‘no more thoughts and prayers.’” Watch the lyric video for “The Kids” here.

Jacob & The Dazey Chain will release a new single every other month leading up to the release of his forthcoming EP this Fall on his Gratuitous Noise label, which will be available on all streaming platforms. The EP features Rami Jaffee from the Foo Fighters and Bill Reynolds from Band of Horses on two of the tracks (“Traces” and the yet to be announced title track). A limited run of vinyl for this EP will also be made available.

Jacob & The Dazey Chain released the debut single “Traces” this past January receiving nods by Classic Rock Magazine (“Tracks Of The Week”) and garnering spins by industry tastemaker Rodney Bingenheimer on SiriusXM’s Underground Garage and NPR’s KOSU Radio/The Spy FM “New Music Weekly” playlist on Apple Music. Listen to “Traces” here and watch the lyric video here.
