With only two EP’s to his name, emerging recording artist and songwriter, Alex Jacke’s soothing vocals, enticing lyrics, charm and rapidly growing fan base are enough to give R&B veteran, Trey Songz and newcomer, Travis Garland a run for their money. The summer 2012 release of his first EP, DFM ,trailed by its sequel, DFM Deluxe shortly thereafter, has captured the hearts of listeners worldwide. It is no wonder Jacke has earned a spot as a finalist in Macy’s iHeart Radio Rising Star contest. But, behind the angelic falsetto and sensual lyrics, is the story of a man who allowed nothing and no one to stand in the way of his music reaching the world; not school, not his parents and certainly not the mainstream music industry. During our exclusive conversation, Jacke speaks openly about his decision to leave Morehouse College to pursue music full time, what inspired DFM andDFM Deluxe and what lies in store for his career in the near future.
