"Jacob Green Brings Something New to the Folk Table"

“Milwaukee, WI native musician Jacob Green brings a whole lot of instruments in his arsenal, and he evokes a different kind of musician that stands out prominently from the current crop of musicians based in the burgeoning folk rock scene today. In addition to acoustic guitar, Jacob is well versed in banjo, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, and tambourine just to name a few. Having these capabilities in playing all sorts of different instruments allows him to reach audiences in the widest, far reaching manner possible, and hearkens back to the early years of folk down South where musicians were constantly trying to hone their sound. Jacob is an exceptionally talented musician with an immensely bright future ahead of him.” - Peter Amara

"Jacob Green is The One Man Green Band"

“I’ve heard it said to “write what you know” when it comes to music. In the case of Jacob Green, that seems to be the case. His latest album “Travelin’ Soul,” that was just finished last week, is well named. Green has spent a good amount of time on the road touring and playing as a one man band. Although his home town is Milwaukee, he prefers to stay busy playing shows as a multi-instrumentalist singer/song-writer and his knack for both bringing out different instruments and writing catchy tunes is displayed on the album. While many take the opportunity to do some multi-tracking and bring in other bits of “studio magic” into a recording, Green has kept this album to what one could probably expect at one of his shows.” - Paul Whyte

"This is : Jacob Green"

“Milwaukee, Wis., musician Jacob Green prefers to keep things simple. No pedals, no effects and nothing that might be mistaken for a frill. “It’s about getting back to the roots of music and where it all came from,” Green says. His stripped-down style — just Green and his instrument of choice, be it acoustic or slide guitar, banjo, Dobro or harmonica — is reminiscent of a modern artist like Ben Harper, but he’s every bit as much influenced by old bluesmen like Robert Johnson or traditional folk and country artists like Steve Earle. Green’s lyrics carry a similar back-to-basics message of distancing ourselves from “this polluted, crazy world we live in,” a theme he explores on his album “Roots Revival Vol. 1,” the first of three he plans to release. The concept came to him in a moment of revelation after a tour van full of his amps, guitars and effects pedals was stolen, leaving Green with little to his name but an acoustic guitar. Turns out, he came to find it was” - Kevin Krauskopf
