Jacob Thomas Jr.
Raw-voiced singer. Songwriter. Sharp, detailed storyteller. Road warrior. Multi-instrumentalist. After spending years onstage and in the writing room, there are few roles Jacob Thomas Jr. hasn’t played.
His most engrossing role, though, may be the character he created with his 2014 debut album, Original Sin, and revisits once again with his follow-up release, Electric Sex. Equal parts autobiography and hedonistic fiction, the ten songs on Electric Sex tell the story of a man struggling to find the middle ground between his guilty conscience and R-rated instincts. It’s a rock & roll album rooted in lust, love, last calls and long nights, all wrapped together in a swirl of reverb-heavy pedal steel and 1980s-influenced electric guitar.
