PRODUCER JAKE TALKS ABOUT VETERANS, PASSION FOR FILMING, SPACE ZEBRA, DWP, WALL OF HUGS, NICKELBACK, AND MORE!

The Scream Queen and Rainbow Llamacorn again! We tag teamed an interview with Producer Jake from Space Zebra the other day!

In our interview he talks about what it means to him to support our Veterans, especially since his Father is a Veteran, we asked him what he thinks people need to be more aware of with Veterans, and he replied “I’d have to say understanding that not everyone’s experiences are the same and there’s a lot more backs tory to it other than the label of a Vet. There has to be a little bit more understanding for them.”

Jake also talked about the Space Zebra Battle For The Big Stage and shared who his favorite Artists on the show so far, which are all unsigned bands. He said that the main goal is to highlight all of the bands and give them the notoriety they deserve. Check out some of the Artists he mentioned below!

Jake talked about The Space Zebra Mourning Show Podcast, which can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.

They wanted to make a way for people to listen to these Artists if they can’t make the streams.
