Jacob Green is a Folk Blues Singer Songwriter, One Man Band & Multi-String Player. Jacob has now laid down some roots & started a family in the Green Mountain State of Vermont, but used to be accustomed to touring all around the US, playing 40 states total, averaging 150 shows a year.
His Latest Double Album "Coexistence" is the Best of Both Worlds in his Music, which features 1 Album done entirely as an OneManBand and the other done completely with his Full Blues Band.
From being a Rambler, to becoming a Recluse, Jacob has had some time to focus on recording of both new material as well as sorting through his long back catalog of original music, he developed over many years of hard travelin' for soul searching inspiration.
And since 2018, he's been living in Vermont, collaborating with multiple musicians from all over the area. Currently, he plays with up to 6 piece band, featuring instrumentation of Electric Lead Guitar, Violin, Bass, Drums & Lead Blues Harmonica Player. His Vermont based band goes simply by: Jacob Green Band.
Jacob Green & The Grit began in 2007 in his hometown of Beloit, Wisconsin. With sounds of Electric Blues & Punk Rock undertones. They built a strong local following, but it was short lived, as the band became less active, Jacob felt the need to travel more and hone his sound.
In 2010, Jacob toured solo to Colorado & met percussionist Tony Campbell (R.I.P.) The 2 then returned to Milwaukee, where Dom was itching to jam on his fiddle.
River Water Tribe had started, first as a trio to ultimately having numerous different band members, up to as many as a dozen different musicians being part of the group. With music being described as Bluegrass with a edge, or even Acoustic Punk.
In 2014, Green moved to Northern California. As he began to build his name as an OneManBand, slowly he started collaborating with local musicians.
Shows varied per band members & bigger events & festivals, they would form a 4 or 5 piece band.
Ultimately, the name 'Jacob Green & Friends' stuck, as each show could feature any of the local musicians. Jacob's Album "Harvest Time" was both recorded in this area in 2015 & features all of the "Friends" on the album.
Jacob has performed at Music Festivals and made Radio Appearances all over the U.S.

"As far as roots, folk and blues music goes, Green does a terrific job on his own and manages to carry a lot of energy mixed with solid musicianship" - Paul White, The Reader Newspaper
“If you like to travel, if you like to get inspiration, Jacob Green’s music is the right way to get that. The national touring musician Jacob Green is no stranger to the road" - James Richard, Calling All Gigs
“At first glance, the title of the album has a negative feel to it. Since it was released in the pandemic, it feels particularly hopeless. Jacob’s idea of the title effectively counters that feeling. “It’s also like saying, ‘we can be limitless in whatever we choose.’ In some ways we’re way too extreme; we’re too positive or too negative. The point is to recognize that. Hearing the phrase ‘no end in sight’ can seem kind of negative, but it’s more about perspective.””
Phil Franklin, Big Heavy World | Rocket Shop Radio
