Hailing from upstate South Carolina, Jacob Johnson is a one-of-a-kind solo acoustic performance artist who specializes in a style of guitar playing he calls "Neo-acoustic folk/funk". In his short career he has already shared the stage with the likes of Angie Aparo, Brian Vander Ark (of The Verve Pipe), Dave Matthews collaborator Tim Reynolds, and even funk maestro Robert Randolph. In live performances, his off-the-cuff sense of humor and tongue-in-cheek sensibility disarm the audience and leave them completely unprepared for the multilayered guitar masterworks he unleashes. Jacob thumps, taps, and slaps his acoustic guitar into submission, weaving a musical tapestry that usually climbs to sonic frenzy whilst never losing its balance or control. His lyrics, thoughtful and realistic, are delivered with the wry sort of charisma that makes you wonder if he isn’t just making it all up as he goes.
And sometimes he is.
