Singer/guitarist Jacob Cade has teamed up with Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger to create a new track, “Icky Nikki,” which was produced and mixed by legendary hard rock helmsman Michael Wagener (Metallica, Motley Crue, Megadeth, Alice Cooper). “Icky Nikki” can be heard at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcDnojDdhYA.
“Working with Lzzy was the most amazing and influential experience for me as a songwriter,” saidCade. “I can’t explain how much I learned in that one day of writing music with her and Joe Hottinger. The song is about a toxic girl that was more or less built out of mine and Lzzy’s imagination with a little help from some of my own experiences. I can’t thank Lzzy and Joe enough for being so cool and willing to work with me.”
Cade will also be playing shows as part of the Planet Axe Tour in late July, featuring guitarists/vocalists Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper band), Brandon Gibbs (Devil City Angels) and Joel Kosche (Collective Soul). The tour will be making a stop here in Iowa at Tailgators in Cedar Rapids on July 25.
“I am beyond stoked to be a part of this Planet Axe tour,” Cade said. “It almost feels like a confirmation that I am on my way to doing what I set out to do in the guitar world.”
Cade’s first single, “What’s Your Problem?!”, was produced by Wagner and was co-written with Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan. Additionally, Cade has written material with former Winger guitarist, Paul Taylor.
