Biography

I was born in 1980 in Las Vegas, NV. My mother played vinyl records a lot, and my father restored model A and model T Fords. I grew up in downtown Las Vegas and worked for a private ambulance company as a EMT-Intermediate for four years. I have also worked at a production art studio, as a phlebotomist, and as direct-care-staff for the mentally handicapped. I am currently in medical school in Phoenix, AZ and will graduate in 2011, which limits the amount that I can record and tour.<br>
<br>

I have played music since childhood and began releasing music semi-commercially in 2003. My first proper album was a self-released CD called <b>”Animal Diseases.”</b> This album contains 15 lo-fi tracks, many of them legitimately about animal diseases!! This album is still available from my website (www.jacobsmigel.com). <b>Animal Diseases</b> was recorded at home in mono on my brother’s computer with a primitive USB-interface, over the period of 10 months or so. I played all the parts on the album and designed the album art. I made several hundred copies and distributed them freely to friends and anyone who was interested.<br>
<br>
Some friends of mine who enjoyed the album were Britt, Amanda, and Joel who started the DIY indie-label called <i>Not Not Fun Records</i>. NNF released my second album called <b>”Full Grown and Talking About Fountains,”</b> which came out in 2004.
