FOR RELEASE APRIL 14, 2023 — Faith-based contemporary rock band Jacob Shane & Company is back with “Freedom,” a celebratory new roots-rock single capturing the feeling of a restored relationship with God’s goodness. You can find it on Spotify and Apple Music.
“The inspiration for “Freedom” came after a season in my life where I had strayed from the Lord,” band leader Jacob Shane confesses. “Realizing I was headed down a very dark, dead end path, I repented and dedicated my life back to God. It was while diving into His word, worshiping Him, and basking in the fact that He had picked me back up from the pit I had dug. That’s when it hit me: this is freedom! And everyone should experience it.”
Calling the song “Freedom” his “own little revival,” Jacob invited his bandmates in to create a raw, raucous, folk-leaning anthem. It’s tent revival meets rock and roll, sure to resonate with fans of artists like Zach Williams and NEEDTOBREATHE.
“I envision this song as being one of revival and regeneration for those who listen,” Jacob offers.
The song follows “Grace,” which Ohio-based Jacob Shane & Company released late last year. The worshipful rock track put Jacob Shane & Company on the map as a rising artist to watch. The band plans to release another single in May, with a full album coming early this summer.
The building momentum of new music is the culmination of many years of vision for singer, songwriter and guitarist Jacob Shane. He voices his purpose simply and powerfully: “My mission and calling is to bring as many people to Christ as I can through the gifts that He has given me.”
