Portland, Oregon — After a decade-long hiatus marked by personal struggles, self-discovery, and a battle with demons, the iconic folk singer Jacobthewilliam emerges from the shadows with a deeply personal and highly anticipated new album. Titled “Malted Milk,” this release is more than just music; it’s a testament to resilience, redemption, and the indomitable spirit of an artist on the brink of a powerful comeback.

Having navigated through a tumultuous past filled with tragedies, self-abuse, depression, and the clutches of substance abuse, Jacob’s journey back to the spotlight is a story of survival, growth, and the transformative power of music. This album is a raw and authentic reflection of the artist’s experiences, serving as a cathartic expression of the highs and lows that have shaped his soul.

”Malted Milk” is not merely a collection of songs but a sonic representation of Jacob’s awakening, a second chance at life that manifests through each note and lyric.

The album’s melodic beauty, coupled with his raw and emotive vocals, creates an immersive experience that transcends the boundaries of folk music.

Growing up in a musical family, Jacob “the” William was destined to follow in their musical footsteps. He formed his first musical group, a hip hop duo “Explorers Of The Dreamworld”, at age 11, and quickly demonstrated his aptitude for the technical side of audio engineering and music production. Over the years, he continued to hone his skills and explore different musical genres, launching several bands and solo projects.

In 2014, tragedy struck when Jacob lost his entire family in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. He himself was left in a coma for three weeks, awakening to the devastating news of his loved ones’ deaths. Struggling to cope with this new reality, he turned to drugs and other addictions, soon losing everything he owned, including his prized instruments and family heirlooms.
After ten years of self-destruction, Jacob found himself at death’s doorstep. It was then that a kind nurse took him under her wing, helping him to rediscover his love for life and music. Together, they embarked on a journey of redemption and recovery, finding hope and purpose in each other’s company.
Jacob’s story is a testament to the power of music, perseverance, and the human spirit, proving that even in the darkest moments, there is always a chance for redemption and hope.
