This is a unique moment in YMA history, it is the first time that I have written about a family member.

Jaycob Riley as he goes by for music is my nephew and he graduated from High School last year and wanted to build up his confidence and recording himself singing and posting it on the internet is one way of gaining confidence because putting yourself on the internet can be very anxiety provoking.

So he posted a video clip on the Youth Music Alive Facebook group and I suggested to him that he should make a YouTube account and reasoned that if making music videos isn’t for him he could always do other kinds of videos on the channel instead.

So Jaycob currently has two music videos done and he is learning more about video making and it will be interesting to see what the future brings.

Jaycob likes musicals in particular The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz while on the music side he likes Queen and ABBA.

He also enjoy songs that mean something when it comes to the lyrics of the song which of course is very important.

Lastly look at that fantastic Melbourne Tigers t-shirt, the best Basketball team in NBL1 at least we hope so when the 2021 season gets underway.

YMA will continue to report on Jaycob’s music news as it comes to hand.
