Live EP to be recorded in March 2012 and released in April/May 2012



Jacob John started creating music not long over a year ago when he decided to further his musical knowledge by improving his instrumental skills. After a week and a half of playing the guitar he wrote his first song entitled Careless.

After 3 weeks he was encouraged to audition for an hour a half slot for which £200 would be paid. Performing a cover of Amos Lee's Windows are Rolled Down and his own original song Careless Jacob was given the job overcoming a host of other acts and artists.

Realising the challange of preparing an hour a half set within a month for a guitar newbie Jacob Johnjoined forces with singer/songwriter/guitarist/percussionist James Jack. The two formed acoustic duo Jacob&James and reached their peak in September 2011 headlining a gig at the HMV Institute.

The pair were the highlight of the show according to the audience combining their musical impact with a confident stage presence and the essence of fun their performances never failed to provide.

But the pair decided to focus on other projects after the performance. Jacob John decided to improve his musical skills and took time to improve his songwriting and guitar playing. Meanwhile, playing regularly every Friday at Birmingham's biggest club Gatecrasher and later at HMV institute on Wednesdays. Establishing himself amongst Birmingham's students as "the Gatecrasher busker" and "the guitar guy".

Jacob John is currently working on his upcoming Live EP that includes tracks such as Crazy Times and the Game is Underway. The EP includes two other live tracks yet to be named and a bonus track composed entirely and solely over 4 vocal parts.
