Will Jacobs gets the blues. And a few other things.
At just 19 years old, Will Jacobs may be a little younger than many other accomplished Chicago musicians.
A student at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Will has been regularly performing since he was 14 years old, spending virtually all of his time writing, recording, studying guitar, bass, Hammond B-3 and contemporary songwriting, and of course, performing.
Possessing an uncommon range and depth of musicianship for such young players, Will and his band – The Will Jacobs Group – have attracted international attention with their talent, drive and dedication. And Will is determined to provide a fresh perspective to the old-school sound by fusing the blues, jazz, gospel and R&B influences of his early years to venture solidly into new territory.
