Jacob Green is a Folk Blues Singer Songwriter, One Man Band & Multi-String Instrumentalist. 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, averaging 150 shows a year.
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.
His upcoming album "No End in Sight" due out March 9, was recorded in the midst of the pandemic and continues his 'Blues Rock' sound he's known for, but also expands into 'folk roots' styles with some of his more personal material.
He's collaborated with musicians from all over the country, leading Wisconsin based bands: Jacob Green & The Grit and River Water Tribe, plus, California based band: Jacob Green & Friends. And now, 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 the late spring of 2010, Jacob Green toured solo to Colorado. There he met percussionist Tony Campbell (R.I.P.) and together they performed on the legendary Pearl Street in Boulder. The 2 then returned to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where old friend, Dom McGoy was itching to jam on his fiddle.
By August of 2010, the 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. They sucessfully toured from Wisconsin to Colorado multiple times & even toured down south in the Appalachia Mountains.
Jacob has performed at Music Festivals and made Radio Appearances all over the U.S.
