Michigan native, musician and songwriter, Jacob Bullard has performed and written songs with such groups as Antrim Dells and Backyard Songbook, also appearing live and in recordings with Strawberry Heritage, Tom Hymn, and Care. As of June 2015 he released a sampler of demos, foreshadowing a future experimenting with rock, disco, and world beat. October 2015 saw the beginnings of a new songwriting outlet for Jacob, the retro-tinged, rock band, Major Murphy. Winter 2016 saw Bullard getting more involved in the recording process, this time on the other side of the mic, producing an EP for Grand Rapids garage-rock trio, Lloyd Braun and a full length effort for freak-folk songsmith, Tom Hymn.

Their infusion of wit and humor with an enlightened cultural outlook creates a product as reflective of their individual personalities as it is cloaked in surprising wisdom." -Joey Basch, Founders Brewing Company
