Jakob James Nowell was born June 25, 1995, to Troy and Bradley. Troy Dendekker was born on March 8, 1971, in Columbia, South Carolina, US to David Newton and Robin Newton. She is a singer and drug activist. She met Bradley Nowell in 1993 at a ‘Sublime’ event in San Diego. They began dating soon after.
Jakob’s father, Bradley James Nowell was born and raised in Belmont Shore, Long Beach, California on February 22, 1968. He developed an interest in music at a young age. His father, Jim Nowell, a construction worker, enjoyed playing guitar and exposed him to the music. His mother, Nancy Nowell, taught piano for a living in addition to playing the flute. Both parents helped teach young Bradley to play the guitar. His father took him on a trip to Jamaica during his childhood years, which exposed him to reggae and dancehall music; he then gained a strong interest in rock music once he learned how to play guitar.
In October 1994, Troy became pregnant with Bradley’s child. Their son, Jakob was born in 1995. After his birth, the couple married in a Hawaiian-themed ceremony in Las Vegas on May 18, 1996. Throughout the band’s career, Bradley struggled with a worsening addiction to heroin. He eventually became sober after Jakob was born. A week after his marriage, Bradley died of a heroin overdose on May 25, 1996, while his band, Sublime, was on tour and was twenty-eight years old.
