Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Bio: Formed in 2015 by vocalist Kaytlin Medley and keyboardist Daniel Bonnet, Flying Jacob is an alternative rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. The band quickly established itself in the local scenes of Maryland and Virginia with their unique take on the alternative rock genre and their engaging and energetic live shows. After the release of their EP, "Pilot", the band underwent lineup changes, bringing bassist Rob Perkins, drummer Alex Despard, and guitarist Julian Lofton on board. All while releasing their newest singles, "You Consume Me", "Hurricane", and "To Our Corporate Fathers" from their first LP, "Renew", which have all since garnered international attention for the band.
