Jacob Hoggard talks about life on the Tour and more
Jacob talked about his personal life and his work before and during his tours in an interview with Toronto 24 Hours. The energetic singer talked about how he likes to work out and get super hyper before his tour, but a week ago, he cools down and relaxes himself to prepare for the jigs.
" I just sort of go really hard and run a lot, hike a lot and bike a lot, and really get myself into top physical shape for tour. The week before we start, when the gear shifts off, almost feels like a boxer a week before his fight. He kind of stops training heavily and just sort of cools it for a second, and just kind of keeps a light regime going."
When asked what he does in between tours and when he isn't busy for his events he replied with,
I like to read a lot. I really try to find the balance early on because it's really easy to get on tour and be like, 'I'm going to do all this stuff. I've got all this music to record.' And so, I think over the years, I've really found the balance in the longevity, or at least the longevity in the balance. And so, for me, I don't rush it too much. And the show is essentially cardio for two hours every night and I don't necessarily sit still for the two hours. Physically, it's a pretty extreme. I kind of just watch my diet and spend my downtime being creative. And I do that by almost forcing my environment to be creative. So our dressing room is catered to a musically creative environment. We always have little mini-studios set up and it's really quiet.
He also talked about how he is involved with the Filmmaking of Hedley's video and even plans to try his hand in Filmmaking someday. A movie produced by one of the most eccentric song artists Canada? Cannot wait!
He furthermore talked about the importance of fitness and healthiness in his life and that while he may not be a fitness nut, he likes to watch himself and ensure that he is as energetic and healthy as ever.
