Pop-Punk & Pizza #104: Jake Newling of Joyful

I can’t imagine what it must be like to start up a brand new band right before a pandemic hits. I’m sure joyful. of Chicago is not the only band that is experiencing this right now. At least it hasn’t stopped the new pop rock trio from releasing new music. Joyful’s latest single, “Pilot Light”, continues to showcase the band’s strong songwriting skills. Drummer, Jake Newling, tells me how the band and song came to be! Plus, we talk about his funny TikTok videos and his other band, Tiny Kingdoms. Great to catch up with you, Jake!
