 +Jacob'​s Trouble was an American Christian rock band formed in Atlanta, Georgia in the 1980s. The group originally consisted of members Jerry Davison (drums, lead vocals), Mark Blackburn (guitar, lead vocals), and Steve Atwell (bass).
 +
 +In 1989, Jacob'​s Trouble released their debut, [[Terry Scott Taylor]]-produced album, //Door Into Summer//, a mixture of original numbers and cover versions of songs by The Beatles and The Monkees.
 +
 +A year later the band released their second album, //Knock, Breathe, Shine//. The band received notice at the time for the song "About Sex," a song about the proper role of sex in society from a Christian perspective. Fearing a fundamentalist label, the band opted to remove the song from the album and replaced it with the more ambiguous "About Sex, Part 2." Despite this, the album was the group'​s best-selling record. They performed "About Sex" during a concert at Dellinger Park in Cartersville,​ GA.
 +
 +One of Jacob'​s Trouble'​s songs, "These Thousand Hills,"​ was given much wider exposure when Third Day performed a cover of the song on their album //​Offerings//​. Jacob'​s Trouble was referred to as "being a band ahead of its time."
 +
 +After their second album the group added two new members (Ron Cochran on drums and guitarist Keith Johnston), allowing Davison to become the band's principal singer. The new line-up recorded the album //...let the Truth Run Wild!// After the album'​s release Blackburn left the band. The band went on to record one more record, the self-titled //​Jacob'​s Trouble//.
 +
 +Jacob'​s Trouble split after their fourth album and its subsequent tour. A collection of "​rarities"​ was released in 1994 entitled //​Diggin'​ Up Bones//, which featured the long-lost "About Sex." The group reunited briefly in 1998 to record a new song, "Step by Step," for a compilation album called //The Jacob'​s Trouble Sampler Pak//.
 +
 +Atwell, Johnston, and Cochran continue to record together under the name [[Janah]].
 +
 +Jerry Davison recorded one CD under the name [[sideways8]] in 1998 and occasionally releases songs via such Internet music sites as garageband.com and IUMA.com. He currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia where he serves as Creative Arts Pastor for Church at the Ridge in Hiram, GA.
 +
 +Mark Blackburn released two solo albums, //​Flowerchild//​ (1996) and //The Continuing Adventures of....// (1997). Blackburn is pastor of a church, Area251/​Reallife Church, in his hometown of Dallas, Georgia.
