Mini Bio (1)

Jacob William Hoggard was born July 9th, 1984 in Burnaby, British Colombia, although he grew up in Abbotsford. He was in a high school band named Hedley and they bet him $151.00 to go on Canadian idol, he did and he made it to the top 3. After Idol, him and the other band members went there separate ways, and he joined with bassist Tommy Macdonald, guitar player Dave Rosin and drummer Chris Crippin to continue his career. The band launched their self titled debut CD which went platinum, and their first single "On My Own" had enormous success in Canada. Other singles from that CD include "Gunnin'", "Villain", "Trip" and "Streetfight". The bands second CD named "Famous Last Words" also reached platinum level in Canada with singles such as "She's So Sorry", "Never Too Late", "Old School" and "For The Nights I Can't Remember". Their latest CD, "The Show Must Go" was released November 2009 and has songs such as "Cha Ching", about what people will do for fame, "Don't Talk To Strangers", which is about cougar women on the prowl for younger men and "Perfect", a sweet love ballad about confusion and the strength to pull through hard times in a relationship. The bands hard work ethics and Jacob's sometimes crazy antics are what make the band one of the most successful and most recognizable bands in Canada.

Personal Quotes (3)

I've discovered that, well I guess I've always gotten bored very easily, but I think there's definitely a large part of touring is that battle against boredom and I think for me I've just realized that I'll do anything to not be bored, anything, anything at all.
Just in case you forget, beauty has so much more to do than what you see in the mirror.
[ on regularly performing at the Juno Awards] Any time you're faced with repetition, the creative side of you can't help but jump out. Every year I wonder, 'This time, can we light something on fire?' I'll ask them every time if I can light my piano on fire.
