Born in country Tasmania, and raised listening to the harmony laden records of his late grandfather and great uncles (The Singing Kettles). A love of Marty Robbins and Hank Williams was instilled early. Followed by adolescent years sound tracked by a diverse array of artists from Tom Petty, John Prine & Jason Isbell, to Black Sabbath and Melbourne psych-rockers, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
Now 21 years of age and residing in Brisbane, Australia, Jacob spent 2019 crafting songs for his debut release. Produced by Brandon Dodd (Grizzlee Train, Kasey Chambers) on the New South Wales central coast at The Rabbit Hole Studio. The sessions resulted in a diverse collection of 'Australiana' tinged alt-country now ready for release across 2020.
