Jake Lyrics

ABOUT JAKE - Toby, Marty, and Josh Penner... "Jake" are three flesh-and-blood brothers who share everything: an unusually close Christian family, a love of all things Canadian (including impromptu renditions of "O Canada," the national anthem) and a heartfelt desire to use their modern pop songs to help enliven the faith of kids all over.

Toby Penner (vocals, guitar, keyboards, percussion)
Marty Penner (bass, keyboards, vocals)
Josh Penner (guitar, vocals)

If you don't know Dad, you don't know Jake. That's because Dad, like Grandpa Penner and several other male Penner relatives, is named Jake. "It's very common on both sides of Dad's family," says Toby. "Since none of us are named Jake, we decided to let the name live on with the band."

For starters, Toby, Marty and Josh are polite, clean-cut, and fun to be around. Athletic and smart, they're equally at home on the basketball court or in their favorite bookstore. It's tempting to describe them as "all-American boys," but they're proud Canadians, to the bone--with dual citizenship, thanks to Mom Penner, who was born and raised in the United States. Holding both a Canadian and U.S. passport makes it easy to cross the border, says Toby. "The customs people always smile and say, 'Welcome home' whichever way we're heading... it's great."

Jake - 2004

"We stopped playing as a full-time band in April of 2003, and have found other things to keep us occupied, but we've all been amazed at how much we've missed being on the road. We enjoyed a very special position there as a full-time touring band for about four years".

"We're finding opportunities here and there to play together and have recorded a bunch of new demos in Toby's home studio in Nashville. We're excited about new goals for our music and lives, new songs to sing and new ways for God to use us. Thank you so much for the part so many of you have played in making these last four years complete and wonderful. Stay tuned. who knows what could happen next?"

Hey I was just e-mailing you guys to say DON'T CHANGE YOUR NAME!!! Because my name is Jake Johansen and everyone likes my name, it is really cool. So I think you shoud keep that name. One more thing when is your next concert? If you can please e-mail me back. (Jakebball@AOL.com) well gtg (got to go). Keep up the great music and god bless you. I haven't heard any songs of "Jake" but "Waiting". I love that song.....it has moved me so much, and inspired me to go into God's presence like a child. I knew to do that, but needed a reminder......that song is so peaceful. And also when I heard that song, I sensed a deep relationship with God in the band, through the words .... it's just great... stay strong in the Lord.......Indi. I love the group Jake! I have been to 2 concerts- 1 in Augusta and the Left Behind tour in Atlanta, GA. I met them both times and they have such AwEsOmE personalities. They have really awesome songs too! I can't wait to go to another concert & meet them again. JaKe RuLeS!!!

What I think about JAKE!!!

FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK GOD FOR PUTTING THIS WONDERFULLY TALENTED BAND ON THIS EARTH. THEY ARE SO AWESOME. I HAVE A 4 YR. OLD BROTHER AND A 1 YR. OLD SISTER AND WE WENT TO THE CHRISTIAN BOOK STORE AND WE GOT THIS VIDEO FOR KIDS CALLED "BIG SONGS FOR LITTLE KIDS" AND TOBY, MARTY, AND JOSH WERE THE VIDEO HOSTS AND THATS THE FIRST TIME I SAW THEM. WHEN I SAW THEM I WAS LIKE WOW WHO ARE THESE GUYS. THEY WERE FUNNY ESPECIALLY JOSH (MY FAV).

THEY ARE JUST SWEET SOFT SPOKEN BROTHERS WHO WERE REALLY NICE. WELL, BEFORE THE SHOW WAS OVER, THEIR VIDEO TO THE SONG "WAITING" CAME ON AND THAT WAS FIRST TIME I HAD ACTUALLY HEARD THEM SING. THE SONG WAS VERY TOUCHING AND MOVING AND I LOVED IT. SO I WENT AND I BOUGHT THAT CD AND I'M FIXING TO GET THEYRE NEW ONE "ARMY OF LOVE". IT'S GREAT THEY ARE MY FAVORITE BAND AND THEY WILL ALWAYS BE. I AM THEIR #1 FAN!!

GOD BLESS YOU "JAKE" I LOVE YOU!!!

Jake- Hello Jake fans- I just got back from another Jake concert. It wasn't like the Left Behind tour. This was much better. It was so fun. I was in the front row taking pictures, Toby and Marty would like pose right in the middle of the song, which was nice but everyone turned to look. I met them after the concert and they were just as nice as the first time I saw them. Toby took my camera and looked at it and then took a picture of us with it... lol... its a great picture. I encourage everyone to go to a concert if you have that opportunity, its worth your time. All I ask is that when you go, be considerate and polite. Give them your attention especially when they are talking so people like me who didn't hear a word of what they said because of talkers can hear what they are saying. Who knows, someone may be hearing the message for the first time. I know that if you go you will have a blast. I can't wait to go to another Jake concert!

In Christ,

Amber
