Following in the footsteps of a famous parent can be difficult… Jakob Nowell understands this well…
His father, late singer Bradley Nowell from Sublime, struggled with heroin addiction and succumbed to it in 1996, not quite a year after Jakob’s birth and shortly before the release of the band’s third album, Sublime, which ironically became a multiplatinum hit. Later on, Jakob battled the bottle for nearly a decade, and is now sober.
His family started the Nowell Family Foundation in 2017 to offer financial aid to members of the music community seeking treatment for addiction. They are currently raising funds for Bradley’s House, a planned six-bed recovery facility to provide treatment for those in the industry struggling with opiate addiction and lacking the means to get help.
