WILLIAMSVILLE – At this time four years ago, Jacob Artist was attending his senior year at Williamsville South High School.
“I think the seed was planted at the beginning of my senior year of high school,” Artist said about when he realized he wanted to move to California. He made the move after he graduated high school, knowing he wanted to be in the industry and California was where he had to go make it happen.
Gleeks will be pleased to hear that Glee: Season 4 is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on 7th October.
The fourth season of the hit FOX series sees the original Glee club members going their separate ways when Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) move to New York and a host of new students arrive at McKinley High. Glee Project winner Blake Jenner joins the cast as Ryder Lynn whilst Jacob Artist, Melissa Benoist and Becca Tobin join as new students Jake, Marley and Kitty respectively.
Guest stars over the course of the season include Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson and Whoopi Goldberg.
Season 4 is sadly the final season for Cory Monteith who died earlier this year. There are plenty of Finn (and Finchel) moments to cherish over the season though!
Bonus features on the release include:

Jacob’s page on the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. website has a small bio and Q&A that I found really cute. Check it out:
Hi, I’m Jacob Artist, I’m 20 years old, and you may have seen me on “Glee”. I’m from the East Coast, Buffalo, New York, and I grew up a little spitfire. I was an energetic kid, and probably a little delinquent too ’cause I had so much energy and I was always bopping around the house. One day, my parents were like, “Do you want to dance?” I gave it a shot and immediately fell in love with it. I trained in all areas—Jazz, Tap, Acro, and I did a lot of Ballet in High School. I was accepted to Juilliard for dance, but I decided not to go. I realized I wanted to act so I moved to LA. I found acting pretty late in the game, but I’ve really fallen in love with it. I feel fortunate to have wound up on “Glee” which has been incredible.
“A&F Jeans are my go-to for casual days. I feel good in them thanks to the comfortable fit.”
Q&A: WE HAD A FEW FUN QUESTIONS FOR TRIPLE-THREAT, JACOB ARTIST, WHO CAN SING, DANCE, AND ACT.
Being on “Glee”, girls must love you! Do you have a romantic side?
Yeah, for sure, there’s definitely a romantic side to me.
Can you give us some romantic tips?
Let’s see… Girls love flowers and chocolate, you can’t go wrong.
What kind of flowers would you get a girl?
Roses, come on!
Obviously you’re really great looking, can you tell us about your heritage?
Thanks; I’m Polish, African American, and a little Native American.
