Love & Nausea
Jacob Callis is quickly making a name for himself as one of the most captivating and dynamic singer/songwriters on the Eastern Seaboard. His acoustic guitar driven style combines the classicism and wit of the Beatles with the modern sensibility of acts like Aimee Mann, Ben Folds and Fountains of Wayne. His songs are catchy, 3-minute bursts of pop fury that you'll find yourself humming the next morning in the shower (or bath). On April 5th, Jacob's barnstorming deubt, LOVE & NAUSEA, was released to the public on M Records. The event was duly celebrated with a performance/party at the Saint in Asbury Park, NJ. Shortly thereafter, the title track from LOVE & NAUSEA went into regular rotation on the prestigious radio station, 90.5 The Night (Brookdale Public Radio). One month later, Hush-Up Magazine chose LOVE & NAUSEA as an 'editor's pick.' Jacob has since been featured in the Ocean County Observer, the Islander, and Upstage Magazine. In September, 2005 he was nominated for his first Asbury Park Music Award in the Top Male Performer category. And in October, he toured the UK in support of acclaimed NYC rocker Jana Peri.
