Jacob is a music producer, audio engineer, songwriter and performer who has been active within the Leeds music community since he was 16 years old. Jacob’s passion for recording music started when he would record ideas for old projects during school, which then grew into an obsessive thought throughout his later years in secondary school where he would go on to study Music Technology at A-Level. He quickly realised in his first year of A-Levels that the only subject he had and interest and talent in was Audio Production, so he dropped out after 1 year at AS Level and went to Leeds College of Music to do a 2 Year BTEC Course in Music Technology, where he finished with a Distinction. Jacob stayed at Leeds College of Music to study a university degree in Music Production, where he finished with an Upper Division Second Class Honours.
Over his time at University he fully threw himself into the art of production with an interest in vintage recording techniques and recording equipment to produce modern yet stylistically appropriate recordings, refining his production style by taking inspiration from modern producers such as Sam Owens (Sam Evian, Hannah Cohen, Cass McCombs), Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Buck Meek, Hovvdy) and Rob Schnapf (Andy Shauf, Elliot Smith) to name a few. While studying he found himself in part of a community of musicians in the Leeds Music Scene that all thrived off of the same taste and aspirations in music. As a performer his main instrument is Guitar, which he plays in the bands for Niall Summerton, Harry Hanson and Holy Water. Jacob also writes, produces and performs in his own solo project under the name Honey Guide. Within these projects Jacob has produced the single ‘Peaked’ by Niall Summerton. As well as recording some of the parts for Harry Hanson’s songs.
