Featured Artist(s): Jake Skubisz

Pretense (or is it presumption?) seems a natural part of every artist, perhaps of every man. In a way, you have to have that small voice in your mind, whispering "I'm better, I have something to say and contribute to this world, I want people to listen to me, I want people to notice me".

Some of the time this conviction may not be without basis. Many people leave their mark on the world and on each other, sometimes in ways they did not even realize or intend. Other times, very few get a glimpse at the fading light in some secluded corner.

Some don't seem to have much pretense at all. They may hear that voice inside and try to do their best, for sheer enjoyment and fun, far from the limelight, creating simple, raw and honest music, that makes you want to pick up a guitar and try a few chords for yourself.
Jake Skubisz is one of those people; care to give him a try?

Hi! My name is Jake Skubisz and I believe this post is about me?

My brother gave me a call one night and told me he stumbled upon this blog. Thanks for the kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed the music. I think I'm correct when I say that you are the first bootlegger of my music! Haha no worries, if you'd ever like a version to put on your blog, let me know and if time allows, I'll record a live version of a song or something like that.

Again, thank you for your kind words!
