Community Spotlight: Jacob Mattson releasing first album

Freelance musician Jacob Mattson of Jacksonport is planning his first music release, “Something Like Home.”  Coming from a family of musicians, including his older brother Eli, Mattson has branched out to find his own style.  He says his music provides a good outlook and brings something good into the world.  Mattson says his music is all about emotion and ranges from folk acoustic to duets with female artists. The title of Mattson’s first release has special meaning for people who are always searching for a home.



Mattson says his eight-year-old daughter, Alice, is on the album cover of his first release because of the inspiration she provides him while dealing with Leukemia and Autism.  You can listen to the entire conversation with Jacob Mattson on the podcast page here.  The pre-release of Mattson’s original song, Momentum, is below.
