Born and raised in the Midwest, Chris Jacob is a ceaseless traveler with a mindful approach to life. His varied experience across the land lends a both deeply personal and culturally expansive quality to his music. Time spent working in the archives of Smithsonian Folkways Records to playing small bars in rural towns to large folk festivals, has helped shape his dynamic and inclusive sound. Rambling from Colorado to North Carolina or from Indiana to Ontario, he tells us a story and renders a heartbreakingly hopeful truth.
With an honest sentiment in his voice and a self-taught authenticity to his percussive guitar style, Chris summons the purity of past musical traditions while generating his own unique vision in pursuit of genuine songwriting. With his debut album, "Passes By", Chris maintains his musical integrity with a raw and beautifully imperfect first studio performance. His live performance is an act of truth and charisma, displaying a character well-suited for the stage. Continually writing, performing, and recording has given Chris the quality of sound and the faithful audience of a true folkster. Like a musical anthropoligist, Chris Jacob proves that the essence of the moment, of the land, and of the people can be captured in song.
