Sand Springs native Jacob Dement has already written and recorded his first full length album, but that’s only half the battle. He needs your help to finish it.
Dement recently launched a GoFundMe campaign hoping to raise $3,000 for mastering, duplication, distribution, and an album release event. At press time he has received $730 in donations towards his debut record, Abandoned.
A long-time musical veteran, his style has developed drastically from his early exploits with the high school screamo band AfterEIGHT. Dement’s later band, The Sellouts, performed a broad selection ranging classic rock to modern Top 40 hits at venues like Los Cabos, Riverwalk Jenks, and River Spirit Casino.
Dement spent years touring the high seas with Norwegian and Carnival cruise liners, performing alongside artists like Heart, America, and Emmy Lou Harris.
Upon settling back down in Oklahoma he took up residency at Margaritaville, performing every Tuesday night for a year before moving his act to the Wyld Hawgz bar in South Tulsa. Dement says he averages around 250 shows a year at venues across Oklahoma.
In addition to his solo work he has also performed with the Jacob Flint Band and as a duo with Flint. They recently opened shows at Cain’s Ballroom for Granger Smith and a sold-out Randy Rogers Band.
His latest work is a more acoustic folk sound and deals with his struggles over the past two years and his separation from his wife and co-performer.
He was also nominated for Best Solo Artist and Best Americana Artist, in the We Are Tulsa Music Awards, and his song “Mr. Strange” was nominated for Single of the Year. To vote for Dement, visit https://www.tulsamusicawards.com.
