Artist Spotlight – Avid Dancer

Former Marine Jacob Summers has a legitimate shot at putting his indie release deep into the Alternative Chart — a relatively rare feat these days. Check out it’s power-pop goodness…

Avid I Feel ItBy Paul Marszalek

Jacob Summers picked up drumming in high school and rode his knack for drumline all the way to the U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps in DC.

While in the Marines he learned guitar and started writing – later moving to the West Coast auditioning for bands, unsuccessfully. So he went out on his own as Avid Dancer.

Some lo-fi releases were followed up with a well-regarded 2015 debut album called 1st Bath, and a SXSW appearance.

Now he’s back with what is his most radio-friendly track yet, I Feel It. The track’s big, friendly pop hooks have found a home on Sirius/XM’s Alt Nation as well as Music Choice, giving Avid Dancer enough spins to threaten The Top 50. A recent set of tour dates in support of BØRNS added to the momentum.
