Jacob Humber – “Afterlife”
Human connection is so important for our mental health. On “Afterlife” singer-songwriter Jacob Humber weaves an honest narrative through introspective lyrics. Finding confidants who will listen without judging or offering their biased opinions can be tricky. Sometimes, it’s easier to bury your head in the sand than face life’s ebbs and flows head-on. I guess that’s why therapists are in such high demand.
Humber questions how you could really form a deep connection without REAL conversations on “Afterlife.” The mid-tempo track features Humber’s genuine vocals that he delivers with pure ease.
“Afterlife” is the first taste of new music that Humber will be releasing this year and we can’t wait to hear what else he has up his sleeve.
