BABY TV Presents: JACOBER
David Jacober is a seasoned, and well-recognized, native Baltimore-based percussionist, song writer, composer, recording artist, session musician, and drum teacher. He is best known for his role as drummer and as 1 of 3 founding members of the band, Dope Body (Drag City), which toured the U.S. and Europe extensively from 2009-2016, and has released 5 full length records.
Aside from Dope Body, David has made a name for himself in Baltimore and beyond recording and touring extensively with Dan Deacon (Domino) and recording marimba with Future Islands (4AD). David is currently drumming with Dope Body, Loris, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat (Carpark Records), and Scroll Downers, while earning a MAT from Goucher College.
Light Years is the newest release from Jacober, the solo project of David Jacober featuring Tariq Ravelomanana (Infinity Knives / Loris) and Allison Clendaniel (of the ‘Mind On Fire’ collective). This record explores the ideas of growing pains and reluctant optimism through lush, multi-layered marimba and drum-driven compositions. Created after a time of intense personal change this album is a look backwards from the initial stable moment after adversity. As defined by the International Astronomical Unit, a light-year is the distance that light travels in a vacuum in one Julian year. Aptly named, this record is a reflection on the distance the artist has traveled through to get back to the light and be here now.
Light Years was mixed and mastered in Baltimore by Rob Girardi (Arbouretum Beach House, Celebration, Double Dagger, Future Islands, Ecstatic Sunshine).
