"The Cropper"

If Bill Withers were to pick up and perform from the Iron and Wine song book, the results would tread remarkably close to Jacob Jiles debut, Goodbye Songs. Jiles' songs focus closely on the blink-and-you-miss-it intricacies of life that most of us can't ever clearly pinpoint, but also can never get out of our head. The record is out now on iTunes via Shark Meat Records. - teamclermont.blogspot.com

The Jacob Jiles sound is Brooklyn Soul with an Indie Rock edge. His Indie Soul style, features sexy bass-lines locked with a classic tic-boom-crack beat. Keys and slinky, raw guitars wrap around Jacob's warm, honest and often vulnerable vocals in his debut release "Goodbye Songs" which features the soon to be released singles "She's Okay" and "Everything You Like."
Jacob Jiles was born in Austin, Texas and raised around the globe while travelling extensively, studying music and supporting his passion doing anything from carpentry in Greece to digging ditches in the swamps of North Carolina. His music mirrors the intricacies of this life. Jacob now lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - a neighborhood that has further inspired him to refine this unique musical style.

Unlike many well-traveled troubadours, Jacob"s songs are not so much about the zany characters met along the way, but instead a reflection on his life experience. These songs easily become your experience. They"ll have you nodding your head and grooving along. You'll listen and then turn up the volume to listen again.. and again.

Jacob Jiles' debut release "Goodbye Songs" is available October 21, 2008 on iTunes worldwide.
