We had the good fortune of connecting with Kaleo Jacobs and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kaleo, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I believe the biggest factor in my success was determination. Waking up everyday and putting the work in and knowing that things may get difficult, but would be worse if you stop.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a music artist. I speak my truth and my truth only and in doing so allowed me to travel the country and perform and make music in other places. And my proudest moments come from listeners who quote lyrics and relate on deeper level. Of course it wasn’t easy, but what in life is besides doing nothing. Understanding you have people who put there lives on the line for this music career to be in the position it is now. So understanding that fact is a constant reminder to continue to put the work in.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Top of Boston. The seaport area. The Prudential shopping center and a lot of restaurants are around the seaport area in Boston. After we could go check out the the studios in the area to make music.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My team. I credit all my success and accomplishments to the people behind me. They keep me motivated and vice versa. The ability we have to push each other to the next level is the reason I believe we are at where we are today.
