There's no doubt that Cherokee recording artist Michael Jacobs is a remarkable and creative musician. An amazing singer, his passionate delivery is impressive. He sings like he means it... because he does. But Michael's skills as a songwriter - a painter with words and music - are what set him apart. His incredible blend of Native American and American "roots" music - a mixture of pop, rock, and folk - artfully fuses contemporary and traditional sounds and powerful imagery. His songs are the stories of life: of the past, present, and future - of beauty and pain, hope and heartache, and of love lost and love found. Michael's debut solo CD, Sacred Nation, received the 2003 Native American Music Award for Best Independent Recording.
