02 – Formation

In this episode, we again interview founder and leader of Sons of Korah Matthew Jacoby. Matt gives us some insight into how he met the other founding members of Sons of Korah.

“My memories of this time are fragmented but at some point I wrote music to a couple of Psalms, as did Jason. At this time, Rod and Jason began to study at RTC and this led to us playing the occasional song together at various functions, mainly within the College.
Naturally this environment encouraged a focus on scripture so we were encouraged to keep looking at the Psalms for our inspiration. Another memory I have of this time is sitting in my Old Testament class where we were looking at the authorship of the Psalms. Most of the Psalms are attributed to David, Asaph and the Sons of Korah. I thought this would be a great name for a band. When Rod, Jason and I had an opportunity to perform I suggested we call ourselves Sons of Korah, given that we were focusing increasingly on the Psalms for our lyrical content.”
