Biography

Born in Crowley, Louisiana and raised on both sides of the Mississippi River, Jacob Zachary emerged from the woodwork of a simple small-town existence under the constant influences of Church, family, and a passion for music. The son of a preacher who often spent time hammering out blues guitar riffs, Jacob had great respect for music from the onset, and had always kept himself in the atmosphere of it. At the age of 15, he picked up a guitar and taught himself to play.

Though his craft in music is still in constant development, Jacob's sound has already been compared to the likes of some well-seasoned musicians such as John Mayer and David Gray. His quickly maturing insight on life and complimented by thought provoking lyrics and a keen sense of melody makes his music immediately enjoyable, yet satisfying long term as well.
