Singled Out: Jacob Davich's Hold On

Today up and coming singer/songwriter Jacob Davich tells us the story behind his latest single "Hold On" which is a track from his debut self-titled EP. Here is the story:

Lyrically for me this was pretty early on in the writers journey of self discovery, so I just wrote about what I knew. I thought about a girl I was dating in my brief 2 semesters at San Diego Sate, and how wildly complicated love can be. The girl in the song is inspired by her, and that struggle of holding on to who we are in the face of the emotional trauma that belonged to both of us, much more so for her. We had only been seeing each other for a matter of months but our connection was strong. There are no words to describe the change that took place in our relationship when her mother committed suicide. All of my youthful naοvetι came crashing down on me like a hurricane, I had never felt so powerless and confused.

The song itself is told from a selfish point of view, my own. I would never presume to understand how she must have felt during that time. I was too young to know a good thing when it stared me in the face, and too blind to see how much she really cared for me deep down, and I for her. I feel blessed to be able to share these experiences through my songwriting.

The lesson I eventually walked away with is that no matter what path I choose, and no matter how many incidents and accidents appear along the way, all I can do is follow my instincts right or wrong and stay true to myself. As long as I don't let the worst of me get the best of me, I'll always be able to look myself in the mirror and know what I'm fighting for. All dreams come slow, and none of them come without serious learning experiences. This was one of mine.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video here and learn more about the EP and Jacob right here!
