Four years ago Jacob was excommunicated from the Jehovah’s Witness’ faith and disowned by his family because of his sexuality. In the painful years following that experience, Jacob wrote the songs on “The Afflicted” as he struggled with drugs, thoughts of suicide, self-acceptance and the death of his estranged father to colon cancer. Jacob's songs are about his recovery from this experience but have a universal appeal with themes of rejection, loss, love and the strength and determination of the human spirit.
Two of Jacob's songs have been recognized by the Vh1 Song of the Year songwriting competition. "To Be Me" a song about self-acceptance was named a winner in July 2005, and "Don't Drink the Water" a satirical take on political and religious homophobia was a top 5 finalist in April 2006. With his music and web site, www.jacobgrenz.com, Jacob hopes to inspire others who are facing similar life experiences and help the public to understand life and love from a different perspective.
